This ground breaking, stereotype busting play with music by the fabulous Mishkin Fitzgerald of Birdeatsbaby will be staged in November, if you can help us.
Besides changing perceptions of the disabled, it will provide five roles for disabled actors and singers and there are rewards!
£5 - We will send you a song
£10 - We will send you a song and a ticket for the show
£20 - We will send you a song, a ticket for the show and introduce you to the cast.
Our story begins with a post on FaceBook by a charity for the disabled called Scope. This drew the most remarkable response with scores of 'likes' in the space of a couple of minutes. Some people even posted pictures of themselves. As I am disabled myself, this interested me very much and I approached Scope with the idea of writing a play with music upon this subject. Scope were very supportive and offered to partially sponsor the project. At the present time we have the script, now in its final draft, and the songs and music by Mishkin Fitzgerald. We need to be able to raise £8,000 for this production to see the light of day (or the houselights). We very much hope that we can rely upon your generosity and we will send you one of our rewards.

About the fundraiser
My name is Damian Darkness and I am a writer of musicals and I have written a play with music called Sex and Disability which is being partially funded by a disabled charity called Scope. However, we need to raise the remaining funds for this very worthwhile enterprise.
