Tamzin Cook Creative and the Union Theatre have joined forces to pilot a new scheme #playitforwardtheatreseats which seeks to support small venues, new writing and local communities at an increasingly tough time.
WHAT’S PLAY IT FORWARD?
It’s a simple premise. You buy a ticket for a designated show (in this case Ghostlight) at a local theatre (The Union). Email your ticket confirmation to [email protected] and that seat is donated to a low income local, young person at risk or local student
WHO CAN BUY THESE SEATS?
Anyone, absolutely anyone. It could be local audience members, friends, relatives, random people who support the arts and they don’t even need to be in the country. We aren’t picky, in fact, you don’t like theatre, that’s fine, just buy a ticket for someone who can enjoy a night out.
WHEN IS THIS HAPPENING?
They are running a trial via Ghostlight at the Union Theatre, running between 27th October and the 5th November and hoping for a rip-roaring success so the scheme can be rolled out to other fringe theatres.
