Collab Project with Fringe

The Wellington Fringe Festival is an open-access festival held every summer involving a wide range of shows across all artforms in venues throughout the city.




Real life, it’s serious business.


Rageface is an acerbic comedy about the internet, real life, and one man's struggles with both, at the 2013 Wellington Fringe Festival. It looks at our relationship with the internet and anonymity and asks what happens when the fronts we put up online start to clash with our lives offline.

Jason (Andrew Clarke, Summerfolk) is a guy with a lot on his shoulders. He's an awkward university dropout, working a job he hates and living with a volatile flatmate. Then he meets Brie, a girl who works at his favourite video store, and falls for her hard. With no-one willing to help him woo her, Jason turns to the one place he can trust for advice - the internet. Except, with his position as top dog on the Nothing is Original forums being undermined by a new poster with My Little Pony on his mind, and his threads dogged by a persistent troll, Jason's internet life starts to collapse around him - and it might just take his real life with him.

Writer/director Adam Goodall made his playwriting debut in the 2012 Young and Hungry Festival of New Works with the murder mystery Deadlines, directed by award-winning director Leo Gene Peters and praised by critics as "an impressive piece of ensemble theatre and a completely refreshing take on what can constitute a Young and Hungry play" (Samuel Phillips, The Lumiere Reader). Together with producer and filmmaker Johnny Crawford, lighting designer Tony Black (Deadlines) and actor Andrew Clarke (Summerfolk), they are the Making Friends Collective.

The collective is looking for the final $500 that needed to achieve our budgetary goals. The money received will go towards the purchasing and construction of set and costume and to execute our marketing campaign which will span both the online (Facebook advertising) and offline (poster printing and distribution) realms.

Rageface is playing at the Gryphon Theatre, 22 Ghuznee St. in Wellington at 8pm from the 19th to the 23rd of February. Tickets can be purchased from www.dashtickets.co.nz, our Fringe at the Gryphon Facebook page or at one of the many Dash Tickets resellers. Tickets are $15 for adults, with a $12 concession price and $10 for Fringe addicts. For any inquiries, the group can be contacted at [email protected] and Johnny can be reached on 0276968236.

Last Minute Prize

30/01/2013 at 9:28 PM

Whoa!

Adam has just informed me that on top of all the other prizes, he will do a custom photoshop for the last person to pledge before 8pm today! How can you say no to that kind of incentive?

Happy Pledging!

Final Day

30/01/2013 at 11:06 AM

So things are winding down but I reckon we can get some last minute pledges.

Thanks to recent pledgers Chris McIntyre, Richard D'Ath, Roz, Benedict Holland, Slayton Hurst Bourdon, Ben and Patrick Lindsay.


Everyone else, please be a cool dude and give us some money before 8pm.

Target Met!

17/01/2013 at 2:44 AM

Thank you so much to all our pledgers for helping us meet our target including the most recent good guys: William O'Neil, Jane Tait, Michelle de Villiers and Tai Samaelie.

That is $500 that will go towards our set, costumes and publicity campaign.

With another $500, we could make our entire budget before the festival, especially in terms of costs like printing and distributing posters. Since we are only halfway through the length of our campaign, it would be amazing if you guys could spread the good word and we could have a repeat of the first half.

More importantly, it would be amazing if someone could donate enough to get Andy off the couch. A date with him would be worth every penny, after all HE'S SUCH A NICE GUY!

Week Two Begins

14/01/2013 at 12:35 AM

How's that for a fantastic week!? Thanks to influx of pledgers we are within a whisker of our target. Arcturus, Philip Belesky, Anna Guenther, Jodie O'Neill, Esther White, Thomas Horrobin, our friends at Bright Orange Walls, Cathy-Ellen Paul and Sara Williams have all donated to our cause! All ten of Adam's fan fiction subjects have been identified and somebody has even got a date with our man Andy (see above).

Of course we can always use more things and the more we get above the target the more we can spend on art department and publicity. Let's see if we can get Andy another date! Dude is totes babin'.

Muchas Gracias

What a great day for Rageface! Many thanks to pledgers three through nine: Jackson James Wood, Will Agnew, Jennifer O'Sullivan, Bronwyn Cheyne, Brie Denton, William Kale and Udayan Mukherjee.

There are seven more fan fictions for Adam to compose, a whole heap of great prizes and a boatload of karma going your way. At this rate, we will likely surpass our target but with a number of unforeseen costs, the more money we can get the better . Every dollar with which we smash that target is another dollar that will not have to come out of our pockets for things like printing scripts and distributing posters.

Tell all your friends and family!

Who will be the subject of Adam's last fan fiction?
What generous souls will push us over the $500 mark?
Will Andy get his date?

Stay tuned to find out!

Early Pledger Bonus!

07/01/2013 at 2:55 AM

I have just received word from Mr. Rageface himself, our dear director Adam Goodall that he will be devising custom written fan fiction for the first ten pledgers!

A huge thank you to our first two pledgers: Kirsty Gendall and Chris Swney! Just eight pieces of lovingly crafted fan fiction left but prizes a plenty for everyone else who helps us make this happen.
