With a little help from my friends…

So, I’m busy trying to finalise plans for taking my new play about Hiroshima to Edinburgh and then on tour…but because hoped-for funding has fallen through, guess what? – I am going to try and Crowdfund some of the costs involved. If you felt able to help in however small a way by donating to the appeal in the next four weeks, that would be tremendous. (Even a fiver is fab!) I do feel this is such important material to share in this, the 75th year since the dropping of the two atomic bombs – and am concerned that already in some quarters (certain venues, for example), I am meeting subtle resistance to the subject matter. But the good news is that already half a dozen schools are keen to have us come visit, perform and discuss the issues with their students. Do have a look at the Crowdfunder page first, when you click on the link below…and of course, feel free to share if you feel so inclined. (Apologies to those who have already donated and to those who know about this already.) And finally, a BIG thank you for anything you feel able to contribute…
