Mojo Flips The Coin
Time & Location
About the event
To take Three Pound Coin Theatre off the ground we will be holding a 24-hour radio show in collaboration with MoJo Edinburgh to raise funds for LGBT Youth Scotland and LGBT Health and Wellbeing. We will be hosting our launch event with a set list of prominent queer artists, activists and independent artists including Nick Hytner , Gina Maya, David Gedge & Mark Gardner. This partnership of Indie music artists and queer theatre makers is a much needed celebration of unity within the arts, particularly after the difficult year that all of us have experienced.
The event will be held online from 5pm on Friday 19th February 2021 for 24 hours. We will be showcasing three plays, all by queer writers, one of which is an original piece of writing by very own Artistic Directors. We will be interpersing these plays amongst interviews with members of both established and rising Indie bands such as: The Wedding Present & Cinerama, The Dandy Warhols & RIDE as well as interviews with community leaders, artists and charities in the Edinburgh queer community.
Our goal is to raise funds to kickstart Three Pound Coin Theatre. We will be splitting a 50% of the funds raised with LGBT Youth Scotland and LGBT Health & Wellbeing to support the wonderful work that they do. During the show we will be holding a Prize draw with a bundles of gifts donated by music artists, local businesses and charities.
