A huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We're delighted and humbled by the support we've received. As we have reached our target of £240, we can now pay for the rights! Unfortunately, that doesn't mean the project is completely funded, we still need to find the money to pay for the rest of the production! This includes:

£20 to pay our photographer's travel costs                                                     £30 for flyers                                                                                                   £30 for programs and posters                                                                           £200 cast travel expenses                                                                             £60 travel expenses for performers at a gig we put on

That means we'd need to raise £580 before the project is fully-funded. Anything you can do to help will be very gratefully received.

Hello! We are Unholy Mess (in association with House of Orphans). Our production of Richard Cameron's 'Can't Stand Up For Falling Down' that we put on in May 2012 has been selected to be part of 2013's re:play festival.

re:play is a festival run by The Library Theatre that selects the best shows from a year on the fringe in Manchester and gives them the chance to be seen at a professional theatre. This will be The Lowry in Salford.

Obviously, we are all very excited about this. We have all of our props and costumes ready and the actors are raring to go. The only thing we don't have is the money to pay for the rights to put the play on again... This costs £240. And that's where we need your help.

£240 might not sound like very much to put on a play, but it's money we don't have. If 24 people gave us just a tenner, we'd be there.

If you can't make it to see the play at The Lowry in January, helping us get there would be a great way of showing your support for a small theatre company that lives off the hard work of its members and the kindness of its supporters.

Thank you for your donation!

Love from,

Lucy, Sam, Hannah, Rich, Eddie, Esther, Lucia and everyone that's involved in the show.

Risks and challenges

The biggest problem we face as a company is funding our project!

Other than that, we all have to juggle getting this project on its feet with a variety of other jobs. We have one week to rehearse the show for a different space, which means collecting the project members from Liverpool, London and Manchester and gathering them all in the same space.

Once we've got the money for the rights, and everyone in the same place, the show should be up and running!
