The OffComm scheme aims to recognise the excellence of many short run shows at OffWestEnd venues.
Shows doing runs of a minimum of 4 performances over a maximum of 2 weeks are eligible for an OffComm. A number of online reviewers and bloggers have agreed to participate in the OffComm scheme and the company needs to invite these reviewers to their show – send an email to email@example.com for details of these reviewers.
If reviewers are able to attend, and they give the show a good review (4-5*), then they also likely to recommend the show for an OffComm. If there are two or more such recommendations, the show will receive an OffComm.
If the pilot is successful, then OffComm will be introduced on a permanent basis from January 2020.
