About the event
Saffron Hill is a theatrical event drawing elements from devised, immersive and site-specific theatre. Written by Louis Akihito Blair, our goal with this production is to engage our audience in new and exciting ways while grounding ourselves in the power of story. Through the use of a non-traditional development and rehearsal process, Saffron Hill will push our cast and creatives to create a world that goes beyond the norm. In other words, it's theatre... but not as you know it.
Our goal as a company is to produce theatre that centres around the power of story, and challenges the traditions of theatrical form and structure. As part of Saffron Hill, our creative team is designing a performance space that lies within the grounds of The Old Church - the only remaining Elizabethan Church in London - and will place the actors and the text at its heart.
It’s the 1920s, and gangland warfare runs rampant on the streets of London. Rival groups wage war in broad daylight, as the police lose their grip on the infamous racecourse gangs that hold sway over the South.
At the centre of it all lies one family, The Bernardis. Caught between the mounting pressure of ethnic rivalries, family power struggles and looming traditions, all looks lost... until an opportunity presents itself in the form of London’s first celebrity drug dealer, "Brilliant" Billy Chang.
Based on true characters, this epic family saga follows the Bernardis as tradition and the new age go head-to-head for one thing... to remain at the top.
Why should you sponsor?
This is a wonderful opportunity to sponsor an event that is at the forefront of direct audience interaction. Not only does the play involve the audience during the event itself, but our marketing campaign leading up the run will take on a cinematic online media presense. Our marketing plan is driven by short, max. 1 minute teaser trailers that will include sponsors and partners at their beginning and end creating maximum exposure.
It has been proven that immersive theatre has an incredibly high demand in London, and we are confident that this will reflect in the audience we get in to see this production. We also work very closely with our sponsors to create unique ways of benefitting both parties, and we're always happy to think outside the box. For more information please do contact us, we truly believe that this this show can lead to further partnerships as we develop more productions and scale up.
