Bechdel Theatre has yet to receive any funding beyond small donations from generous individual friends and members of the public who care about gender representation on stage. This project has grown enormously over 2 years and we need money to keep going and pay for activities including: printing stickers for posters, equipment and hosting for the podcast, paying artists to make Bechdel Testing Life plays). We can only exist with your support!
Luckily, there are lots of ways to support us, including some that are more fun than handing over your cash (though cash is good).
Support us with your cash
– Make a one-off DONATION 💷 to our fundraising page and share it with anyone who has heard of our work.
– Become a PATRON for less than £1, £5 or £10 a month. This is great if you don’t have big bucks to spare on a one-off donation, and you get stuff out of it, like badges, extended podcast episodes, and EXCLUSIVE ticket deals (eg. in August we’ve got a secret discount code for 2 for 1 tickets to Scorch by Sally Gregg at Soho Theatre)
Volunteer for us
– If you’re heading up to Edinburgh Fringe this year you can help us Bechdel Testing Theatre. Drop us an email and we’ll get you kitted out with a pack of stickers so you can be part of our team highlighting Bechdel test passing shows wherever and whenever you see them at the Fringe.
– We are also seeking accommodation at the Fringe. We’re heading up with open return train tickets intending to stay there to Bechdel test shows for as long as we can afford to! If you can offer us a couch or floor to sleep on for a night, we will come bearing fresh coffee and avocados.
Special thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far, with money, skills, time, and invaluable advice. Especially our fellow struggling artists!
