We're being talked about in Gibraltar!
SIHFP and The Moira Fund are now known in Gibraltar, which is home to playwright and Gibraltar Cultural Ambassador Julian Felice! His play "Ten Minutes" will be featured in our show in March. It will be directed by Greek director Iris Hale and will be perfomed by fellow Gibraltarian and former student of Julian's, Kaigan Garcia, along with Alexander Dover. We were mentioned on news site "Your Gibraltar TV" (link here) and in the Gibraltar Chronicle newspaper (link here). We're really looking forward to staging this play and putting on an absolutely wonderful show in March 2020!

We're joining forces and making a podcast!
Here at SIHFP, we're all for supporting local organisations, such as charities, fellow theatre companies and others. So we're teaming up with the lovely Jennifer Brough to support her blog/podcast company called "Don't You Know Who I Am?"
Jennifer talks to creatives about how they started out, what their process is and how they "keep on keepin’ on". This will be the very first time that SIHFP will have ever been interviewed! We're very excited to talk with her on Thursday 12th September and to talk about our show next year and our work! We'll keep you posted as to when the podcast will be online.
Where our proceeds are going
We are extremely proud to announce that the charity we will be supporting through our next show is The Moira Fund.
This charity supports those who are grieving their loved ones who have been murdered. It has been established in memory of Moira Jones, who was murdered in Queens Park, Glasgow, in May 2008.
We have chosen this charity in honour of our friend Cathy Burke who was murdered back in November 2017. We want to dedicate our show to Cathy and her family; to Moira and her family and friends; and to all those who are suffering through the painful bereavement of their loved ones who have been cruelly taken away from them. Thanks to charities like The Moira Fund, help and support is at hand, so that families and friends are not alone through their distressing journey.

We're accepting script submissions for 2020!
THAT'S RIGHT! We had such a great time at our sold out shows last time and loved raising money for charity - so we're doing it again!
We are looking into staging our show in March again - so for now we're asking writers to submit their scripts.
If you would like to submit a 10 - 15 minute script which has a maximum of 4 characters which does not require any set (just minimal props and moveable set, like a table, chairs etc) and minimal sound effects, then send your scripts to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for submissions is the 21st June.
When you send your scripts, please state in your e-mail that you are happy for your piece to be performed with profits going to charity.
We look forward to hear from you!
