‘Fit to Burst’ to realise the full production of new show ‘Last Night I Met You Dreaming.’

Fit to Burst is a London based theatre company that makes magical shows, with heart, for everyone.

Conceived and directed by Rebecca Tortora and devised by the company ‘Last Night I Met You Dreaming’ is a magical allegory exploring our ambivalent relationship with nature and the dangers of taking too much.

Inspired by the magic realism writer Isabel Allende, the activist and playwright Eve Ensler and the journalist Naomi Klein ‘Last Night I Met You Dreaming’ is a journey into the wild, a warning and a call for connection.

In an absurd mechanical world where nature is suppressed and speed is king a journalist has forgotten how to feel. She is charged with writing about a mountain in ‘The Region’, a lush green place on the verge of collapse. This ancient silver mine, the source of the first global currency and the site of oppression, is to be newly tapped for resources despite warnings that it will implode. When her editor tries to block the story, supernatural forces intervene, her filing cabinets come to life and she is sucked inside. Here she meets Lola, a storyteller, and a host of spirits and mavericks who conspire to unravel the story and unlock her heart.

‘Last Night I Met You Dreaming’ is a tale of passion, resistance, one woman’s journey to connection and the individual as a microcosm for the world. It asks how can we look at our animal nature? What is the role of that in our destruction of our only home? Can emotional connection help to create a more sustainable future?

In May 2014 Fit to Burst received a grant from Arts Council England to support a one month research and development period. As a result of this they now have a full script, a great story, strong musical/movement and design elements and are ready to go into full production. 

They are booked to premier at exciting London theatre and art space The Bussey Building in July 2015. And are seeking support to make it happen!

If we don’t raise this money we can’t create the show. We really need your support!

The Broadway Green Alliance was founded in 2008 in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is an ad hoc committee of The Broadway League and a fiscal program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. Along with Julie’s Bicycle in the UK, the BGA is a founding member of the International Green Theatre Alliance. The BGA has reached tens of thousands of fans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other media.

At the BGA, we recognize that it is impossible to be 100% “green” while continuing activity and – as there is no litmus test for green activity – we ask instead that our members commit to being greener and doing better each day. As climate change does not result from one large negative action, but rather from the cumulative effect of billions of small actions, progress comes from millions of us doing a bit better each day. To become a member of the Broadway Green Alliance we ask only that you commit to becoming greener, that you name a point person to be our liaison, and that you will tell us about your green-er journey.

The BGA is co-chaired by Susan Sampliner, Company Manager of the Broadway company of WICKED, and Charlie Deull, Executive Vice President at Clark Transfer<. Rebekah Sale is the BGA’s full-time Coordinator.
