Using fundit.ie, an online platform for people with great ideas to attract funding, The Playhouse is inviting you to get involved in the tour of our latest production!

In 2014 The Playhouse brought the life of Josef Locke to the stage in a unique piece of Music Theatre exploring his life, music and legacy.

Written by Felicity McCall and directed by Kieran Griffiths, the piece saw esteemed singer Karl McGuckin join local musicians and actor Peter E Davidson for an affectionate look at Locke's life, music... and his tax affairs.

After the storming success of the world premiere, we now have bigger plans to raise £3,000 in an online campaign to develop the hugely successful piece of work further, taking it on the road to bigger stages throughout Northern Ireland.

The show will tour to The Millennium Forum on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 October, and Lyric Theatre Belfast from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 November.



£10: A special mention in the programme as a patron of the show.

£25: As above + complimentary 1 year membership of The Playhouse's Applause Club.

£50: As above + a poster of the show signed by the cast, writer and director.

£100: As above + an invitation for you and a guest to the opening night in Belfast, or Derry with a Champagne reception (or a non-alcohol equivalent) with the play's producers.

£750: As above + an invitation to attend rehearsals in The Playhouse and see the creative process in action OR a one day master class in musical theatre with the play's director, Kieran Griffiths at a date to be agreed, in the 12 months following your donation, in a venue that you provide, anywhere on the island of Ireland.
