Hello!

We are fundraising to take our show, Eggs Collective Get A Round, to Edinburgh this summer. We're back-combing the beehives and wiping down the sick bucket once again for one last run of our first show before it hits TV screens at the end of August. Donations, no matter how big or small, would help to make this happen. 

We started making Eggs Collective Get A Round in 2014, in response to a world that we saw as becoming increasingly divide and conquer. So much has happened on the world’s political stage since then, we think it's more relevant now than its ever been. Get A Round explores politics under the guise of a girls’ night out. Since the financial crisis, in the face of continuing cuts and an increasingly unequal Britain, this show asks if the basic principles of a big night out might make the world a better place.

Performing in Edinburgh is expensive and we are paying for it ourselves. To do this we're selling our wares at a garage sale, doing a fun run and putting on a quiz night to get the money we need. We're also running this Kickstarter campaign, which you can donate to if you'd like. We've got some homemade rewards to say thank you: from postcards to videos, goody bags to going out kits, private tours of Manchester to lifelong membership accounts.

Your money will go towards covering our travel, accommodation, venue, production and living costs during Edinburgh. Just five pounds will cover the cost of a week's supply of Wotsits, fifteen pounds will cover the cost of tights for a whole month, fifty pounds will cover half a night's accommodation for the three of us. 

The last time we took Eggs Collective Get A Round to Edinburgh was in 2014. We were in a tiny, sweaty attic at midnight. There was no door, not enough seats for the audience, and we kept banging our heads on the ceiling. A lot's happened since then: we've finished the show, it's toured nationally to theatres, pubs and festivals. And we have just finished working on a specially adapted version for BBC2, which is currently scheduled to be broadcast at the end of August. It is an exciting time for us, and we can’t wait to get back to Edinburgh, only this time with guaranteed audience seating and the faint possibility of temperature control.

So thanks for taking the time to find out more about us and our project. We know we can't do this on our own. If you've got any cash to spare we'd really appreciate it right now!

Risks and challenges

Our bags are packed: the show is finished, the fluorescent strip lights have been PAT tested, the dresses have been washed. We have a good show ready to go. We have a great venue. Your money is safe there.

Our greatest challenge is finding the money to pay for our accommodation and production costs. We are doing other fundraising events to help find the cash and are hoping, with a team effort, we can go to Edinburgh!
