WhO are we?

Willis & Vere are a comedy writing partnership from East 15 Acting School.

The company was formed when we took our first show, interview with a genius, to the Free Fringe at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015. The show was a semi-improvised comedy show with live music and videography. It received a Pick of the Fringe from EdFringeReview.com.

We then decided to write our first proper play, The Starship Osiris . After previews at the Pleasance, Islington in 2015 and The Lion & Unicorn in 2016 we took the show to the Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016. The show was a surprise success and allowed us to take it to the VAULT Festival in London, Leeds, Rye, Birmingham, and then the Brighton Fringe Festival.

How will your money help

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the best possible opportunity for us to show our work to the public, agents and venues.

We have been able to part-fund our Edinburgh 2017 show by performing The Starship Osiris at a number of venues over the last year, but we need a little more to be able to reach our goal.

Our minimum target will pay for:

£1,750 Edinburgh Fringe Festival Venue Deposit

Anything above that will go towards:

£250 Flyers to give out in Edinburgh
