stakes in the story

One of the casualties in the 2007 round of funding cuts was London Bubble, which lost its grant from Arts Council England.

In response, it set up Fan Made Theatre, a scheme which encourages the public to buy a stake (£20, concessions £10) in the company. An attraction was that a stakeholder could vote on the choice of the summer show.

The title that's won the vote this year is Homer's Odyssey.

This blog has already noted that, in the age of climate change and mass migration, there'll be no hiding from this story.
