Please help us raise £1,000 towards Brig-Aid by sponsoring our 24-hour Shakespeare Marathon of performances and workshops.

Brig-Aid is a group of people raising funds to make sure our friend, colleague and mentor Sarah Brigham receives the treatment she needs for a rare form of cancer.

Sarah's cancer is untreatable in the UK. She needs to go to Germany, where she will have the best chance possible. Sarah is a great giver and we want to give back.
