|Joy With Child|
Joy With Child arrives at Taurus, 30 Sept
Date: 23 September 2010
Following Afternoon Tea and The Benefit of Time, Organised Chaos return to Taurus in Manchester with their new play, Joy With Child.
First time director Dean Biddell presents the talents of Celia Carron, Lee Joseph and Steven Moorhouse in a dark drama that takes unexpected turns and keeps spilling secrets.
Following the death of ‘60’s bad boy of art, Kenny, his widow Corrinna has moved herself into the basement. She has been living here for a year, estranged from her children and, possibly, slowly losing her mind.
She keeps seeing a man. His name is David and he keeps appearing in her basement, she doesn’t know how or why. Stephen, her son-in-law and only contact with the outside world, doesn’t seem that interested or seem to believe her when she tells him of this strange presence. Stephen has his own problems, anyway. His relationship with Maz is deteriorating, and Corrinna has no interest in her first grandchild, as she says, she is too young to be a grandmother. David, who is real, is searching. He knows Corrinna’s basement holds the clue to his life, but he doesn’t know how or where. As each person tries to hold onto their own sense of self, of sanity, they come together and try to find what they have felt is missing from their lives.
Organised Chaos Productions continue to their aim to find and nurture undiscovered and emerging talent in the North West, and provide platforms for this creativity by successfully taking care of all the production technicalities. Their first productions in were staged in February at Taurus Bar.
The company, headed by Gayle Hare, Kirsty Fox and Mark Creamer, have extensive experience, with credits in both film and theatre. Between them they have produced, managed, directed or performed at the Edinburgh and Buxton Festivals, the National Student Drama Festival, The Lowry, Studio Salford and the 24/7 festival.
Joy With Child will be presented at Taurus Bar on Canal Street from 30th September - 2nd October at 7:30pm with a matinee on Friday at 2:30pm. Tickets are on sale through the Organised Chaos website.
