The evening is to raise funds towards LIFEBOAT THEATRE's production of FANNY AND FAGGOT at The Pleasance, Edinburgh for this summer's Edinburgh Festival. This new play by SHAMELESS and SKINS writer JACK THORNE had a sell out run at London's Finborough Theatre in February, it was Critics Choice and Show Of The Week in Time Out, with 4 star reviews in The Times and Sunday Times.
Lifeboat Theatre is the new project by Stephen Keyworth, Artistic Director of 5065 Lift. In June 2005 he filled the London Eye with comedy, theatre and music for Flight 5065, a one night arts extravaganza. Performances included Jo Brand, Arthur Smith, Damon Albarn and the National Theatre. An earlier version of Fanny and Faggot was originally commissioned by 5065 Lift in 2004 and performed in a 2m square portable elevator venue based in Edinburgh's Pleasance Courtyard.
