Bleak House - A Radio Play

(Save Our Pantaloons)

In the current crisis The Pantaloons are finding new ways to go on…line. The first of our new ventures is our BLEAK HOUSE radio play: a brand new, high quality recording of our critically-acclaimed adaptation of Dickens’ masterpiece. Check out the trailer opposite!

We’d love to entertain everyone for free* at this otherwise miserable time but right now we urgently need to recoup costs of the Bleak House tour was cut short after only a week and a half on the road.

The outlook is dire for arts organisations and performers at the moment but we’d feel uneasy simply asking for handouts so please let us continue to sing for our supper; if you give us money we will give things to you in return!

We’re adopting a crowd funding model to make this new radio production (and our continued survival) possible, with a tiered donation structure:

DONATION OF AT LEAST £10
– A personal thank you via email or social media

DONATION OF AT LEAST £25
– A digital copy of our BLEAK HOUSE radio play
– A personal thank you via email or social media

DONATION OF AT LEAST £65
– A digital copy of our BLEAK HOUSE radio play
– A personal thank you via email or social media
– A limited edition FANTALOON t shirt
– A copy of the Bleak House theatre programme

Please note that delivery/supply of products/services may be delayed due to the pandemic but we will send regular progress updates. We have begun work on the radio play but it will take some time to produce safely so please bear with us!

Our target is to raise a total of £12,000 to cover the shortfall in our immediate finances caused by the pandemic. Anything at all you can afford to contribute at this difficult time will be very gratefully received. (Have no fear, we will still produce the radio play even if the target is not fully met.)

*If we make it over this hump we will be making some free online content too as an additional thank you to our fans for supporting us!
