So the opening weekend of my play was not ideal. Oh, we got the acting side of things under control, all the props and practical things were sorted and we delivered a darn good show on all three of those nights. It's just a shame that only a handful of people showed up to each performance. Turns out the people in my hometown would rather stay at home and watch TV. The low turnout was upsetting for all of us, but I refuse to give up and cancel the rest of the shows. Because I have a cunning plan.
Basically, my plan is to pre-sell as many tickets as I can for this weekend. Two of my friends have already agreed to do this for me; to pitch the show to their friends and colleagues and sell them tickets in advance. I literally made up sheets of tickets in photoshop based around the poster design, which my friends will print, cut up with scissors, and gently force people to buy. And then I will pay them in beer. I'm hoping to drum up even more ticket-selling friends tomorrow, so cross your fingers for me.
Don't get me wrong. This weekend has been incredibly hard, but I have to keep trying. You see that look of fiery determination under all that hair? I will get us an audience, and I will make this show work. Let's go! Fight!
