This is from Abrieftasteoflove at Tumblr. Here are her words verbatim. (http://abrieftasteoflove.tumblr.com/post/5025323616/attention-frankenstein-benedict-jonny-sherlock-fans)

There are currently two auctions on Ebay for tickets to the final performance of Frankenstein. PLEASE DON’T BID ON THEM.

They were donated to the Swivel Theatre Company by Rakspatel to auction off as a fundraiser. The auction listing claims that “these tickets were donated to our theatre company by a patron at the National Theatre.”

RAKSPATEL DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO DONATE ANYTHING FOR AN AUCTION ON BEHALF OF THE NATIONAL THEATRE.

Face value of the tickets is £12. The opening bid of the auction is £70. I don’t need to tell you that this is a ripoff. I don’t need to tell you that one theatre company does not have the right to sell tickets to a performance by another theatre company for their own profit.

The auction listing also claims that you get “entry to the closing night party to which all the cast, crew and the director have been invited”.

THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT.

The cast and crew have been endlessly HARASSED by Rakspatel. They have had offensively worded “posh invites” FORCED on them by Rakspatel. What you’re actually being granted “entry” to is a roped off section in the lobby of The National Theatre that anybody and everybody can wander into if whenever they please. Rakspatel will be there celebrating herself and her “connections”.

It’s not about Frankenstein anymore and it hasn’t been for quite a long time.

Again, PLEASE DON’T BID ON THESE TICKETS. Don’t give her the satisfaction of thinking she’s done a charitable thing. It’s not. It’s illegal. And it’s hugely disrespectful to The National Theatre.

First ticket : D41 - return code 5 - Order 4517058 Rakshita Patel
Second ticket : B 19 - return code 7 - Order 4517058 Rakshita Patel

Tell them one of their patrons thinks it’s ok to sell tickets on ebay (illegal) for an organisation that is absolutely not referenced as charity (illegal), and it also happens to be the crazy fan who has been stalking celebrities at the stage door and bothering the actors.
