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.

    Now we are in self isolation and without a live show, we're going to continue cheering people up with our own particular brand of satirical comedy by creating online content. We now have a You Tube channel, there is new material on there now and look out for our online TV show coming soon! In meantime, please spread the word and stay safe! Many thanks, Mark Brailsford The Treason Show

    Hi Mark. I’ve seen the first 2 episodes on YouTube, thanks for keeping the show going. You must work hard to find props/costumes, create the music and then film and edit the show. Best wishes. ColIn
