New Year, New Things: an introduction to OFitD in 2018

Hello Wonderful People!

Welcome to 2018! This year is a big one for us here at One Foot in the Door and we’re not wasting any time. We have a lot of exciting things to share with you, and the first thing we’re doing to achieve that is producing regular updates.
In these updates we’ll let you know about all of the upcoming projects we’ve got on and about all of the opportunities that come along with them, so if you’re wanting to keep up to date make sure you’ve subscribed to our website and you’ll be the first to know about everything One Foot in the Door.

Jemma working hard..What is One Foot in the Door Productions?
The first thing we want to do with these updates is let everyone know exactly what we are about and what we want to do. So, to get everyone up to speed…

One Foot in the Door Productions is a creative collective based across the UK, but our network is not restricted by country borders. If you are creative and want to get involved, no matter where you are in the world, then throw us an email at ofitdarts@gmail.com or a tweet @ofitd with what you have to bring and we’ll get you involved. We are a collective, and members come and go on a project by project basis. The OFitD collective is led by Jemma Rowlston and Sean Brady as the Creative Producers, as well as Louise Barclay Johnson as the General Manager. It’s their role to guide productions, make sure there is a program of projects within the collective and keep all the paperwork and budgets in check.
OfitD came together with the aim to continue being creative once leaving the bubble of university. Our long-term goal being to open a community multi-arts centre with versatile studio spaces, programs and opportunities, in order give artists of any medium a place to come together and create.
There are no limitations in the collective: no project too big or too little! We’re always looking to try new things. We’re more than just theatre, and we’ll venture into any medium that suits a project best – whether that’s a radio play or web series. OFitD strives to never avoid any creative medium.

So, What’s Coming Up Next?
We’ll update you properly on the projects we have coming up very soon, but for now here’s a whirlwind tour…

Jones’
Jones had a dream to one day own the coolest, best bar in London. Today, with his best friend Nat, he runs that bar. He gave up everything to follow his destiny. It seemed fated that he ends up here one day, but when new information comes to light and the long-lost love of his life reappears he has to make the decision: give in to ‘fate’ or make his own destiny.

This is a comedic immersive show commissioned by The Brewers Inn, Wandsworth, London. It is due to play from Jan 29th – Feb 3rd 2018 (but not playing on Jan 31st). Tickets for this show are available by calling box office – 02088744128 or by emailing us at ofitdarts@gmail.com
And more information can be found on both our facebook page and website.

Just Don’t Call it Jumanji
Alex has always wanted her life to be just like an 80s movie. Everything was so much better, so much rawer and so much more genuine than it is now in a world full of mobile phones and Facebook. She is an absolute 80s film buff, which comes in handy when she wakes up in an 80s movie trivia game where the only way out is to live through 80s films.
This is a whimsy, funny, reference packed love letter of a theatre production that will play on the fringe circuit and anywhere it can stick its nose into. Currently it’s in its final script edit before we go into production. More soon…

Lost in Spaces
For David and Aloone (née Alan), the chance discovery of an unmapped moon is the perfect opportunity to stretch their legs and prod the unknown. But after encountering strange apparitions on the moon’s surface, and an even stranger administrator, what starts as a jolly-jaunt planet-side soon turns into perilous journey through space, time and a small bungalow in the West Midlands.

With shades of Hitchhiker’s Guide and more synths than frankly appropriate, Lost in Spaces is a new, four-part audio play currently in production to be released digitally later this year. Created by Joe Askew, produced in partnership with OFitD with illustrations by Jessica De Kroon, we’re excited to be offering all four parts completely free, so there’ll really be no excuse!

There’s even more in the pipeline for the year to come, so watch this space! Don’t forget you can also keep up-to-date with all of our work by following us on facebook and twitter.
