Brewers had the pleasure of donating £400 to The Lost Lady Society (LLS), for their new show, The Saviour.
The LLS is a community-based organisation located in South Somerset, set up to empower women through Theatre and the Creative Arts.
The organisation was founded by Arts Manager, Sarah Setter, in 2019 and now has a small team of Lost Ladies that help run its projects.
LLS has curated a variety of events, including comedy nights, music gigs, plays, a podcast and pop-up artisan markets.
The Saviour is a new cabaret-comedy-musical, set in a Yeovil fish and chip shop. The story follows the relationship between two sisters, as they try to save their dying family business. The main aim of the production is to encourage participation in the Arts in rural Somerset and to increase mental wellbeing by bringing people together.
The show was born in the time of COVID lockdown, as a way for theatre makers and non-artists to come together and continue working/creating. LLS aimed to help reduce loneliness and isolation and did this by running a series of movement workshops with local older people, which then fed creative material directly into the show.
The Saviour will be opening at
Ilchester Town Hall in December 2022, and then hopefully tour in Spring/Summer
2023 to festivals, pubs, restaurants and shops. In Ilchester the ticket price
will include a small fish and chip supper, the show and a donation towards
Counselling for Yeovil.
