Alternative Sex Education - Oxford, 8 & 10 June
Posted by Lashings of Ginger Beer Time
So, we did it! Thanks to the great kindness of many people, we successfully achieved our target over on WeFund1. (We've sent out emails to all our donors - if you haven't had one, check your spam folder!)
Now, what are we going to do with your money (apart from sending you awesome rewards, of course)? The next show, as you'll know if you read kaberett's post on Friday, is called Alternative Sex Education.
In a lot of ways, this feels like the show we've been building up to, or dancing around, for some time. It's still a sketch show, but it's been pulled together and is presented like a play, rather than a cabaret variety show. It's still full of witty and insightful parodies of popular culture, but it's also much more in the business of offering alternatives.
Along with all your old favourite acts, there's plenty that's new: and where else could you see Lady Gaga mashed up with Twilight, hear a song about carnivorous vaginas, or join the Kink Scouts?
You first chance to see this exciting new show is coming up next week, during Oxford Pride and the OxFringe festival: Old Fire Station, at 40 George Street, central Oxford. If you live outside Oxford, never fear - this venue is right next to the coach station, and only 500m from the train station.
Buy tickets - see trigger warnings.
And now, we're off to spread some more posters around town! Hope to see you there...
1: We didn't exactly have a bad experience with WeFund, but we wouldn't necessarily recommend them to other groups looking to raise money, either - we've had to put in a lot more behind-the-scenes work than we expected, and they have worrying IT practices like emailing out people's passwords in plain-text emails.
