This is the written equivalent of that moment when someone holding a clipboard and wearing a brightly coloured hoodie catches your eye. We could start by saying we like the top you’re wearing, or pretend we just want to have a chat about the weather but we both know it’s a lie and so we may as well just come out and say it – Can we have some of your money? We would then go on to talk at length about why you should consider donating to this particular cause. Part of you would be listening, part of you would be plotting your escape and the last part would be thinking do I have any money to spare and what is the value of this organisation?
At this point, the analogy kind of breaks down as the world’s need for a cure for cancer or for fresh water in a sub-Saharan village is far more obvious than the world’s need for a duet reflecting on the realities of relationship, loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet (or something).
But consider it anyway. We believe in it, we know audiences want to see it, and we know that we need money in order to continue to deliver our deceptively expensive shows.
We’d love you to be a part of it.
