1. Pick of the best
Each year we run a Script call this is for new work never been seen on stage before by some new and emerging writers. These two scripts were picked as the two best from this call. We were inundated with scripts and look forward to bringing these best of what were some great scripts to it’s first audience.
2. New Talent
Organised Chaos is all about showcasing some of the amazing new and emerging talent in the Northwest - this show does exactly that with some great stories and characters to be portrayed.
3. The Venues
We have some fantastic venues lined up for this run – opening at The Lowry Studio moving on to Square Chapel in Halifax, on to The Lantern Theatre in Liverpool, The Oldham Coliseum as part of their First Break Festival and then on to The Pavilion Arts Centre in Buxton.
Both of the plays deal with some very controversial issues – A Lot Of It About deals with the very controversial issue of Sex Aversion Therapy which ‘deals’ with homosexuality whilst Broken deals with other contentious issues in Mental Health.
5. Award Winning
Following a number of top reviews and sell out shows these productions will be Organised Chaos’ eleventh and twelfth since we started in 2009 - during this time we have showcased a lot of new talent to Northwest audiences – actors, writers, directors, designers to name a few of the roles involved in making a show a reality. Last year our production of AfterWords won Best New Writing at The Buxton Fringe Festival.

2 May Square Chapel, Halifax
