Help us tour London for a terrific end to 2017!

Help us branch out and leaf NO PART OF LONDON HUMOURLESS with our new and unusual comedy!

Help us tour leaf around london

Hi! Carissa and Helen here! We're two funtastic East 15 contemporary theatre students looking for funds for our show Leaf. We're showcasing it in the Edinburgh Fringe festival this year before we go on tour, and we need your help!

Leaf, written by Helen Potter, is a comedy play that is both entirely based on the truth, and an absolutely load of fictitious nonsense. As quintessentially British as the queen eating her roast dinner off a Boris bike seat (perish the thought!)

We appreciate any and all help you can give, so thank you for having a look on our page and if you can, just click on the 'sponsor' button to the right. Thanks!


“Like the b**tard child of Monty Python and the Mighty Boosh…prepare to be pleasured.’ - Jesse Briton, Bear Trap Theatre

“Monty Python meets The Mighty Boosh. Fabulously odd and laugh out loud funny” – Fat Rascal Theatre

“Leaf is an ambitious and ultimately hilarious exploration of the absurdity of life. It is a show with a lot of potential, I am eagerly awaiting what they will do next!” – Shambles Theatre

Who are we?

Potter & Wagner.

More? Well, after mildly tolerating each other’s company through the hardship of 3 years at drama school, we finally achieved a bearable working relationship that may or may not give out to graphic violence within the next few years. It was in the creation of our first show – Leaf – that we united under the majestic banner Potter & Wagner, and plan to continue on in this particular vein (excuse the nature puns boys…) Having been developed as part of East 15’s Debut Festival for 7 weeks including 2 showings in the Corbett Theatre with fantastic response, Leaf is now ready to go flying out into the next stage of development.

Where will the money go?

Our minimum target will pay for:

  • £300 Initial venue deposit
  • £100 to help pay for the printing of posters and flyers
  • £50 to help pay for all of the lovely set and props that we have
  • £100 to transport set and props

And anything above and beyond will help pay for:

  • £1000 second venue deposit


If you donate to our glorious cause, your efforts will not go unnoticed - expect to be rewarded handsomely! Check out the rewards on the right of the page and see how far you're willing to go to receive some very niche gifts and opportunities - we will go above and beyond (believe me!)
