We are over the moon!
Just before we start our 3 weeks of rehearsal, we got the amazing news that Becoming Mohammed is going to be funded by Arts Council England! A first little victory, and a great way to start our creative process.

Thank you to all who have advised, supported and helped us with our GFTA Art Council application!
