Who Are You Supposed To Be?
is a love letter to being a fan of movies and television, a fan of science fiction and fantasy, a fan of being who you are and sometimes pretending you’re somebody else just for the hell of it.
Tickets are on sale now.These characters are fans of Doctor Who, but this is a universal story of two people meeting – two people from other sides of the world finding out they have so much in common, but can’t agree on who would win in a fight between Batman and Captain America.
This show is very close to my heart - and the characters are very real to me. Ash, our female lead, is dressed as the Fifth Doctor. Gene, our male lead, approaches her and jokes, "Who are you supposed to be?" They're at a convention, surrounded by cosplayers, who does he think she's meant to be? Who is he?
The show is a comedy, a romantic comedy, but also it's about anxiety, it's about fitting in - and it's about Doctor Who fandom. It's a universal story about how we represent ourselves - and sometimes misrepresent ourselves - when we meet someone for the first time.
And it's also about whether the Doctor could be a woman. So, it's topical! (Even though I started writing it last year.)
But we need your help to make the show amazing, so we're running a fundraising campaign at Indiegogo
Our costumes need to be amazing. Our publicity needs to be amazing. And our venue is amazing, but expensive.
If you're in the UK and thinking of travelling to the Edinburgh Fringe, a certain level of reward will give you a ticket to the show. Plus a postcard and an annotated copy of the script!
If you're in the UK and not going to the Fringe, any extra money will go to touring the show. (If you're in Australia - Melbourne or Adelaide - look out for it next year, and help out now if you can! We're offering cheap tickets to those shows if you donate now.)
If you're elsewhere in the world, please consider helping out our little Doctor Who-themed show. As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations, we'd like this World Premiere Comedy get the best reception it can - and donations will help to publicise it far and wide.
And who knows? If we raise lots and lots of money - and the show does really well, we might be able to tour the show even further afield.DONATE NOW
