Support the Skin in the Game Crowdfunder

We’re creating a near-apocalyptic near-future climate chaos play but we need your help- be a crowdfunder hero!

We’re aiming to raise £4510 by 8th November (less than a week before we open!) but if we don’t hit our target, we get nothing!


Are you terrified of the climate crisis – or taking it all a bit less seriously? Are you ready to cope with a little dark humour?

‘Skin in the Game’ wonders what would happen if the response to the real climate apocalypse wasn’t action, nor indifference… but “bread & circuses” light entertainment.

Whatever your feelings about our climate-future, the question is: Are you game enough to be in the audience? Are you game enough to help bring it to life? Do YOU have Skin in the Game???

And don’t forget to buy tickets!

‘Skin in the Game’ has been in development since the summer of 2019, when playwright Gill Kirk was struck by lightning whilst walking in Scotland.

Ok, not exactly- but a freak storm did strike her with inspiration… and now it’s time to bring that inspiration to the stage. Excitingly, Skin In The Game has been chosen as one of three new writing plays to make its debut at the New Wimbledon Studio theatre as part of their FIRST-EVER Premieres Season. But to get it on stage and to do credit to Gill Kirk’s brilliant (and bonkers!) writing, we need a cast, rehearsals, costumes… and a Derek the Bee God mask.

Yes, there is a bee god and he’s called Derek
