About this project
"Like Blood From A Cheap Cigar" is a dark romantic comedy written by Genevieve Joy, starring Genevieve Joy & Joseph Reitman, that premiered in the Los Angeles Fringe Festival in 2016.
It is a personal glimpse inside the intense, damaged relationship between George, an overgrown, past-his-prime 'bad boy' and Margo, his significantly younger girlfriend who's been driven to the brink of hilarious insanity by her irrational and uncontrollable love for him. The show received wonderful reviews at the time of it's debut and during the ten week run in Hollywood that followed...
The next step to bring the show to The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which is the largest arts festival in the world and has given many artists and works of art an enormous boost on their way to success. "Like blood From A cheap Cigar" has already been accepted to play at one of the best venues in the most coveted time slot. However, there are a lot of expenses involved in getting there and making it happen, this is where you come in... We need to raise $15,000 which will cover flights, transportation, lodging, production costs, and marketing costs while we are over there and we need your help!
Below are copies of the reviews "Like Blood From A Cheap Cigar" received in Los Angeles. Please help us get more of these and take our play to the next level!
Risks and challenges
Because this show was enormously successful in Los Angeles, we are confident it will be a huge hit at Edinburgh... But there is just no way we can make this happen If we do not make our Kickstarter goal by ---.which is why your pledge is so critical!
We have taken all the preliminary steps to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible- we have been accepted by one of the top venues and are registered with the festival. We have also been researching the best ways to build an audience!
We are both working actors, and jobs do come up that sometimes conflict with other projects... but we are both incredibly committed to seeing this show reach it's potential; we realize that we are asking for your help and we take your investment and belief in us seriously. In the event that Spielberg calls offering one or both of us millions of dollars to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio during the month of August 2017, all it will mean is that the show will have to go on hold until next year.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
