1. Funding – Obviously putting together a project of this scale is going to need funding. Everybody involved has so far given their passion and time for free but eventually peoples' costs at very least will need to be covered. We are envisaging that this devising process will take 6 months. We will be applying for R&D development money from the Arts Council but in order to do so we need to find partners and additional funding ourselves. A Kickstarter will be launched on the back of a growing social media campaign in summer ‘19.
2. Endorsement and advice – If you feel you have skills which could support our project we would be enormously grateful to hear from you. We are operating as a
production/rep company so to hear from people who are professionally involved in the industry would be invaluable.
3. If you like our aims, simply spreading the word to others about what we are planning will help massively. Our project is about people and in order for it to get made we need you!
If you would like to Get on the bus with us, we’ll be leaving shortly...
IT’S GONNA BE A HELL OF A RIDE!
For further information on this unique project, please contact Samantha Rushton at TheClaimants@mail.com.
We look forward to hearing from you.

“I’ve lost a lot of special things, more than I care to mention and I’ve no problem with
pain. It gets me to sleep most nights. I’ll be buggered if I was gonna lose the one thing that
took that away though.”
“The food is disgusting and the toilets look like a war zone but the spirits in this
place look after us… and by that I don’t mean the gin.”
“Where else am I gonna find friends, family........and a market place, all
under one roof?!”
“I’ve bounced off a lot of walls in my life. There’s no point in the Penguin though. They

“the beast” Bowker…those idiots are going to pay for everything they’ve done.”
“They say penguins live in large colonies and that’s us. It’s our home. I long to get
away but I know that day’s a long way off...”
“Births, marriages and now a death. I’ve had the full fuckin’ set in that place!”
“I’d fucked up and needed to put things right. The pain was enough to make a

“Hi. Come in. Sit down. Sounds like you’ve had a terrible time. Rest
assured, I am going to do everything in my power to help you fuck yourself royally. That’ll be
nice won’t it! (smile)”
“Not everything can be explained by logic and reason. The Penguin is a paradox
that’s a living example of this dichotomy. Great place to be stoned too”
