We are fund raising to help the development of a new musical aimed at young people, which explores themes around global warming and reconciliation (between those who could have made the difference and surviving future communities). We have already received some funding from a private backer to help develop the script and initial team building. Now we would like to raise the next set of funds to bring together our young songwriter, Finn, thirteen years old (creating an opportunity for this talented young songwriter) and Maisy Beth Crunden an inspiring and up and coming singer songwriter

The Night Witches
A play exploring the incredible courage of the women of the 588 squadron who flew night bombing missions on the Russian / German front during WWII.
To each they were sisters, with bonds forged in blood and terror. To the Red Army Air Force they were an infuriating feminist sideshow. To the Germans they were 'Nichthexen - The Night Witches'
