Hello there! I'm Rose Martula, a playwright currently residing in Brooklyn NY. Between 8 play productions in London, New York, & Los Angeles, I've had very fortunate opportunities of being surrounded by amazing supportive people across the country and along the way regarding my playwriting career.
Included is a slideshow of press photos of my past productions in London, and I have recently completed a trilogy of new plays utilizing a total of 12 actors. I am seeking funding for artistic support that would help aid me with a time-sensitive trip to London. There are 7 HOURS to reach my deadline for donations in order to get my final budgeting properly sorted before my trip. *Though the funding goal is $500, I am trying to raise closer to $1000.*
My goal is to re-introduce my writing to a European audience, in hopes of getting picked up for production via a staged reading in London. After having a bad case of the ole writer's block, I wrote 3 inter-connected plays in a whoosh of 4 weeks of inspiration. Dramaturgs and directors have encouraged me to produce a staged reading as a way to re-connect with my professional relations--theaters, directors, producers & other writers from my London contacts. My 2 past London productions have aided me greatly in getting production in the states. Through much of my success in London, career doors have been opened.
The funds pledged in this project will go SOLEY towards: lodging/hotel expenses & misc spending money on cabs and tube fair. I am in the midst of mass mailing invitations to artistic directors at various London theaters to help present it to a public audience, and have cast all 12 actors.
There are tons of fun and fantastic, Rose Martula-style incentives and gifts in donating, as well as a range of benefits to backing the project. Thank you so much for listening! Without supportive people like yourselves, the arts would not be where it is today! Woo-hoo!!
