Hammersmith and West London Peoples theatre Company

Dear Neighbours,Can you help, please? There are so many good causes at the moment,  but this could be just what we all need!  We’re going to create a new, full-length play with music about 24 hours in West London - completely created and performed by anyone in West London who fancies trying theatre.  Acting, directing, writing, producing, backstage, lighting, sound, music, social media, video, kids company, podcasts, etc.  There will be numerous ‘guest’ slots too, so other community and youth groups can get involved and showcase their talents, so please spread the word!  We then pay some of the top talent in the theatre world to come and work with us. Initially, of course, online! But we need to prove (again) that people are interested.  This is the second time we're fundraising as with The H&F Peoples Company in January made we 101% of its funding target!  It was all or nothing funding and people like Sir Derek Jacobi,  West End producers Peter Wilson and Trish Wadley, comedian Arthur Smith, journo Lynne Gardner and actors, Rebecca Raybone, (Doctors, Monsignor Renard, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, etc), Morfydd Clark, (Mina from BBC's 'Dracula' and forthcoming 'Lord of The Rings') Marc Elliot (Eastenders, Holby, etc) all contributed or are supporting the idea.  But a late final payment means we have to do it all again!  So it's the same project that succeeded before (although we've renamed it 'West London' rather than 'H&F so we know the difference!) but in order to get support again from H&F we need, again, to show people are interested.  So if you are, perhaps you could like our project on SpaceHive. Or even make a pledge!  Just £2 is the minimum and would show we have support.It will be a great new celebratory show. Looking forward to a brighter future. And more immediately, helping struggling professional artists.  Please share & help if you can... If you've any questions, please get in touch. Thanks,Nick.
