North East comedy writer’s play hopes to make The Big Time in Edinburgh.
The play will run at CVenues: C Royale in Edinburgh from 1st to 25th August, just one of thousands that will be hoping to make their mark. The Edinburgh Fringe is a dream for many a performer, not just because you can perform at the largest arts festival in the world…but for many it just stays a dream due to the sheer cost. Producing a show there in August costs many thousands of pounds, something Walton-Gunn Productions know too well. They have secured costs for the venue, accommodation and for the actors, however they are still a few pennies short… few thousand pennies that is. They are looking to find the final part of the budget for set, props and costumes and are holding a fundraising night for just that. The shows producer Stacy Walton says “We have self-funded ninety percent of the costs, but still have an amount to source. Funding is limited for opportunities like the Edinburgh Fringe, especially for an all-out comedy. Arts Council funding is a no go for us as a company, so we are turning to theatre fans to help. So, we hope our night of comedy and music will do the trick.”
