The LOVEBIRDS TShirt in Super Soft Cotton, Full Color Artwork By Dingbat Design
I was sucker punched by love and wanted to die. But I wrote this solo play instead. It's about six fictional characters, who aren't the brightest, who are looking for love through gay bars, paella joints and wherever passion happens. I play coeds, butches, dudes and working girls. This is my tenth solo play in my thirty year career so I intend to make it the best thing I've ever done
What LOVEBIRDS Needs
UPDATE: LOVEBIRDS reached our original goal in less than a week! YOU did that!!! But there's still 16 days left to fundraise on INDIEGOGO and lots of great PERKSand I'm thinking of some new ones.Can we take it HIGHER? Every penny will be used for the production - The real costs are over $4500. LOVEBIRDS is high maintenance : ) So keep spreading the word and come back for a perky perk. Thank you!!
We could use $4,000 by January 25, 2014 in order to partially pay production costs for the LOVEBIRDS team. They have been gracious enough to accept my offer of deferred payment until January 25th, 2014. Please help me compensate my team.
Director David Schweizer
Dramaturg Jayne Wenger
- Set Designer Vola Ruben
- Sound Designer Mark O'Brien
- Lighting Designer Erich Blazeski
- Graphic Designer Jeannene Hansen
Other LOVEBIRD expenses include:
- Roundtrip airfare to bring my collaborator of ten years, David Schweizer, from New York to San Francisco.
- Building materials for the LOVEBIRDS set
- A promotional budget: posters and distribution.
$3,500 raised so far doesn't cover all LOVEBIRDS expenses. YOUR contribution to this campaign will get LOVEBIRDS flying HIGHER.
Your LOVEBIRDS Perks
Not to brag but I'm ridiculous. I have more quality perks than you will find on Indiegogo! 4 new perks just added Jan 11, 2014. Get a phone call, smile, or entire show dedicated to you plus now medium t shirts are available for the yoga people!
But Really, Why Marga Gomez?
I have successfully written and performed nine prior solo shows that have been produced nationally, internationally and Off-Broadway at The Public Theater as well as Off-Off Broadway at Performance Space 122 and LaMama Cabaret. I am a GLAAD Award Winner. Armistead Maupin once called me "Astonishing" on Twitter.
In 2012 when I started working on LOVEBIRDS an acquaintance asked me what my show was about. I told him "It's about love." He rolled his eyes and asked "Isn't everything?" I wish that were true. What the world needs now is LOVEBIRDS, sweet LOVEBIRDS!
Although LOVEBIRDS is peopled by fictional characters, it will be the most revealing work I have ever attempted about the most important thing in anyone's life, I hope. And that is love. Please show some love by making a contribution of any amount now.
I'm on indiegogo because I really need to make this show happen and I can't do it without the help of our community. If you are still reading this you are either a romantic or obsessive. I am both those traits. This is my first Indiegogo campaign. Please be kind.
If You Can't Donate $$ You Can Donate Buzz : )
I hear there are sharing tools on this indiegogo page. If you can find them please use them to spread the word about my LOVEBIRDS campaign. Or if you get into a conversation about Latina Lesbians feel free to mention "You know Marga Gomez? She's got a new show and it has an Indiegogo Campaign!"
