Story

In these unprecedented times, the survival of The Treason Show is my only means of income. The show has run for 20 years and is unequivocally my life's work. We are unsubsidised and don't have corporate sponsors and only survive on our box office income. To this end, I need your support to keep the show going through the covid 19 outbreak to enable us to come out the other side with the show intact somehow. Personally, as a renter, I am facing the prospect of being unable to pay our rent and other bills due to this virus emergency. Our income has vanished as no one is booking to see our shows, in the next few weeks there may not even be any shows as venues may close. Even if they stay open we face a wipe out of audience numbers and have already had to cancel shows as some of you know. Any aid you can offer by contributing to our justgiving page would be amazing and whilst our plight is nowwhere near the desperation of other sectors of society (health, OAP's,homeless) as a self-employed creator of shows there is no prospct of the government's assistance being anywhere near enough to survive. So, with humble thanks for all the support we've had over the 20 years of The Treason Show, I hope to raise enough to keep going and when this has all calmed down, with your help, be able to keep The Treason Show alive. Thank you.

Mark Brailsford, Creator of The Treason Show.

    Well, we're still here is our company motto and thanks to the support of our amazing supporters, we can keep making the TV show. We will be ending the series at the end of July then we will we be having discussions with Latest TV to see where we are with a second series. We will be looking into how we can crowdfund for this in August. In the meantime, thanks again to all our supporters, it's amazing to still be able to work and make the TV shows. Take care and stay safe. X Mark

    We have been overwhelmed by the support people have shown and we are going to be able to reach make 3 more TV shows on the back of it. Interestingly only around half the amount raised came from the TV show donations, the other half came from before we made a TV show, mainly from our wonderful supporters, so it's a mixed bag doing a TV show. So we'll get to July which is thanks to the magnificent support we've had and then in August see where we are. In the meantime, we hope you are staying safe and staying well and are enjoying the TV shows.

Here's hoping you're all staying safe and well. Look our for episode 3 from 28th May! X Mark

    Well done Mark and team. The lockdown version is, dare I say, even better than the live version. Best wishes, Rosalind and David X
