About The Road That Wasn't There

Project 2012-06-01 03:44:10 +1200


Hi. 

We are a theatre company from Wellington NZ, currently based in the UK. We want to take our show, The Road That Wasn’t There, to the Edinburgh Fringe and then bring it home to tour New Zealand and Australia.

It is a play about a girl who follows a map off the edge of the world… 

In New Zealand there are some 56 000 kilometres of paper roads – streets and towns that exist only on surveyors maps. Or do they? A young woman wanders from the beaten track and finds herself in the paper world. At first it seems a land of possibility, but she soon discovers that things that happen in the fictional world can have frighteningly real consequences.  

See more about it here

We’ve got our script written, our puppets on the go, and our venue in Edinburgh sorted. Now we just need a little bit of cash towards some of our other costs: marketing, transport and production materials. 

We know it is weird to fund a production you may not see this time, but we promise that we will bring our show to a town near you just as soon as we can. We have some high hopes and plans for New Zealand Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe as well as further dates in the UK. We just need some help for this first step on the road.
