Here’s the local version of last week’s offer to Victoria bloggers.
We’d like to get some bloggers out to see the show, and I’ve got five sets of free tickets for that very purpose. Here’s the deal:
- You live in Vancouver.
- You’ve got a blog.
- You email me at darren [at] darrenbarefoot [dot] com, expressing your interest in a pair of tickets. First come, first served–we’ve got five pairs of tickets to give away.
- You come to one of the first two shows: Thursday September 7 at 5:30 pm
or Saturday, September 9 at 9:00 pm. There will be tickets waiting for you at the door.
- If you’re so inclined, you can talk to the actors and/or myself after the show. I’ll only be at the first show, so if you want to avoid me, go to the second.
- You write a review of the show on your blog, linking to www.thisplayisbolloxed.com (and I’ll link back to the review). The review can be extremely brief (“Bolloxed was bollocks!”), brief (“The best thing I can say about Bolloxed is that the exits were clearly marked”) or a 1000-word treatise (use your imagination).
The only foible is that you have to procure $5 ‘membership’ for yourself and your fellow Fringe-goer. You only pay for these once (they fund the administration of the festival, as all box office revenue goes to the performers), and you can buy them at the door to the show. Hopefully you’re going to attend other Fringe shows (I’ll be making some recommendations), so this won’t be much of a nuisance.
If you’re interested, drop me an email at darren [at] darrenbarefoot [dot] com.
By the way, if we’re good friends, and you’d go to the show anyway out of obligation, then you should just pay. I don’t really need your money, but my fellow fulltime artists probably do. I promise to, you know, come to your kid’s recital or what-have-you.
UPDATE: All the tickets are gone, thanks to everybody who enquired.
