‘Southern Fail’ the musical

If you have the misfortune of commuting with Southern Rail then their abysmal service is something you are undoubtedly familiar with. In fact, their service is so bad that the awarding winning team behind ‘The Treason Show’ want to make a song and dance about it. Yes, an actual ‘Southern Fail Musical!’ poking fun at the nation’s least favourite rail operator. We loved the idea so much that DRS are now the headlining sponsors for the show!

 

What can you expect from the show?

Not only will the show be entertaining, but it will ‘publicise the campaign to support long suffering commuters and their battle against an utterly incompetent and useless railway company.’ And what better way to create awareness then to shame the company for what it is!

 

How can you get involved?

At the moment, to cover the start up and running costs for the show, the team are in need of support from the general public. All donations are greatly appreciated. The quicker the costs are covered the quicker Southern can be exposed! All you need to do is visit this link https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/southern-fail-the-musical--2#/ and enter your donation amount by clicking the ‘BACK IT’ button. Alternatively, you can choose to donate £25 or more and in return receive great perks!

If you can't help financially but would still like to take part in the campaign, volunteers are needed to assist with the production and leafleting. Any help is welcomed.

 

When will the shows be taking place?

If their funding goal is achieved when expected, shows are looking to commence around June time in the Brighton/ Sussex area. Keep up to date with times, venues and sneak peeks of performances by following their Facebook and Twitter page here.
