Another £3000 will pay for one of our company members, who has a disability to attend the Fringe, with a support worker, and stay within accessible accommodation.

HELLO! We are StammerMouth and we are fundraising to take our performance of CHOO CHOO!(Or... Have You Ever Thought About ****** **** *****? (Cos I Have)) to the EDINBURGH FRINGE!


CHOO CHOO! (Or... Have You Ever Thought About ****** **** *****? (Cos I Have)) is a silly, surreal, tragi-comic exploration of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - a misunderstood and misrepresented condition, told by people who know a bit about it.

CHOO CHOO! has been made by disability led theatre company StammerMouth who integrate BSL and Audio Description into every single performance. 

BSL and Audio Description in every single performance, you say?

Yes, that is right! We have committed to being the change we'd like to see at the Fringe. Our show is accessible to D/deaf, partially sighted and neurodivergent people. We offer touch-tours before the shows, and audio description is a main story-telling device within the show, through a sometimes unreliable narrator!  

Basically, CHOO CHOO! is for everyone, every single day. Or at least for those available from 2nd - 28th August between the hours of 1.15pm and 2.15pm who can be at the Jack Dome, Edinburgh, Scotland. 

This show must cost a lot of money?

Indeed. And we need your help raising money, particularly towards our access costs. As recipients of the Keep It Fringe Fund we've already been awarded £2000 towards working with a BSL interpreter - but we have a long way to go! Our access costs alone are in the region of £10,000 and that's before we even think about paying ourselves, our travel, accommodation and eating food. 

Why are you putting yourselves through this mammoth task?

As a small company based in Wales, we REALLY want to take our most ambitious work to the Fringe, which is a such a massive platform for exposure. 

Your support you will help us to share this passion of ours to talk about things that are difficult to talk about. We want to empower people who experience OCD and intrusive thoughts, whilst also spreading awareness to audiences who do not. It is our goal to reach both groups and to cross-pollinate them, sharing spaces together

Ok, i'll give you some money but what do i get?

Well, we like to put the FUN into fundraising so we will do things like; 

Write you a song! Cook you dinner! Sign a photograph of our faces! You can also write a letter to be read out in our actual show show! Take a look at the full list of awards for more information.

Thank you for reading and listening. Please share our campaign as far and wide as you can.
