Hollywood legend Corey Feldman takes the lead in the European Premier of the hilarious off-Broadway play, White's Lies.
Some guys are scared stiff at the prospect of settling down, getting married, having kids… and Joe White is no exception. He’s a divorce lawyer, representing one of his many ex- girlfriends, and above all else, he’s a bachelor who wouldn't have it any other way. So when his mother desperately wants him to start a family, he’ll do the next best thing: make one up. What could possibly go wrong?!
White’s Lies, by LA based writer Ben Andron, has been rewritten for this European production and features an entirely new UK creative team, led by up and coming director, Mark Pollard. Hollywood legend, Corey Feldman will play the lead role of Joe White. Corey is best known for his appearances in a number of seminal films such as The Lost Boys, The Goonies, Stand By Me and Gremlins.
Milton Morrissey are the producers behind White's Lies. As first class producers of West End and UK Touring theatre, they having produced new and existing theatrical works for the past 10 years. It is this artistic expertise and theatrical track record that allow them to be able to fully support the vision and ambition of the creative team ready for the exciting European Premier of this hilarious new play. White's Lies will premier on August 2nd at the George Square Theatre in Edinburgh as part of the 2013 Edinburgh International Festival.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world and takes place every August for three weeks in Scotland’s capital city. Tens of thousands of visitors flock to the city over the festival period, creating a buzz like no other. This unique environment is the perfect place to showcase exciting new work to hungry audiences, garner a fan-base and get reviewed by the very best papers and periodicals.
The budget for a new play of this scale in Edinburgh is significant. As the commercial production company, we at Milton Morrissey are responsible for pulling together the funds to enable everything to take place from rehearsals through to performance. This includes: Artists Fees, Travel & Accommodation, Set, Lighting, Sound and Marketing.
We’re asking you to participate in making this production the huge success we know it can be.
But why Kickstarter?
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein
In theatre, we always stick to the same models. Investors, Angels and other established theatre producers jump on board and start throwing their ideas and suggestions in to a hat. This is fine for a while, until eventually you realise that as the lead producer who had the idea in the first place, you are making none of the decisions!
We want you to be our financiers so that we can create a product that remains true our original vision. And that vision is quite simply, to create an hilarious comedy that stars one of Hollywood's living legends!
We hope as many of you as possible will be able to see the European Premiere this August. Meanwhile, here are some awesome rewards to kick things off: original merchandise from the show, (exclusive T-shirts and Souvenir Brochures) and even the chance to APPEAR in the show itself alongside a Hollywood legend!!
We’re also excited to be opening the doors to a behind-the-scenes “making of” the production in a new way that's made possible by Kickstarter. At our highest-level rewards, we’re offering up some once-in-a-lifetime backstage experiences as you and a guest attend a rehearsal and see a Hollywood star getting to grips with his lines! You could even meet the Producers, or let Corey take you and a guest to dinner at a lovely Edinburgh restaurant. You could even a prop from the show!!
Whatever you end up pledging, thank you so much for being part of this. We couldn't do it without you.
