Support Freelance Artists!
As you will be well aware, the COVID-19 crisis has had a devastating impact on the theatre and live events industry, wiping out potentially months of work for thousands of freelancers throughout the UK.
Last week the Government announced measures to support Freelance and Self Employed workers, but there are still many who fall through the gaps.
In order to support some of the Freelancers we’ve worked with, we are raising money by streaming our 2017 production of The Tiger’s Bride by Angela Carter until 2nd May only.
Suggested donation amounts are £3, £5, or £7

About The Tiger’s Bride
My father lost me to the Beast at cards…
Having fled abjection in Russia, Beauty and her father arrive in a small Italian village to find that all who come here must play a hand with La Bestia. After her father makes a very ill-advised bet, Beauty must come to terms with a frightening new home, a surprising offer, and a most unusual Beast.
Based on Angela Carter’s short story, The Tiger’s Bride is a modern reworking of Charles Perrault’s Beauty and the Beast, for adults. Turning the conventional fairy-tale on its head, this is a story of desire, rebirth and embracing the Beast in all of us.
