Organised Chaos bring Midwinter Ignition to 3MT
Date: 19 November 2012
Local theatre production company Organised Chaos Productions bring their latest collaboration to the Three Minute Theatre in Manchester later this month. Midwinter was the theme given to brand new collaborations of writers, directors and actors to create 10-15 minute pieces of theatre.
The pieces drawn from this theme are: Seeds Of War - a Remembrance Day story for 2012. Sophie is a young Manchester girl whose life has been devastated by the conflict in Afghanistan. Consortium: Three people occupying one body are awakened by their AI caretaker to carry our scheduled maintenance on the compound. They soon discover that the other consortium has been murdered, and must find out which one of them is responsible.
Deal? No Deal? A girl sits along on a bench. She is approached by a man looking for Mandy. Who is he, why is he looking and why could the girl be in so much trouble, including losing her daughter if she told him?
The Angel is a fairytale in Manchester: Eddie wants to be allowed to see his son. He wants it so much that he’s drive to a mad, desperate act, in Selfridges, Manchester, where hundreds of children are waiting for Father Christmas...
Hogmastide pits believers against non believers when Alien abductions have been taking place on Birchwood Drive, but Tom is not a believer. Kate’s self-appointed mission to save hogs from fire puts her in danger every night and she has left herself little time to stock up for Hogmas. Will the aliens get Kate? Will the hogs survive Hogmas?
Christmas on the Canal follows Craig - an 18 year old who has been thrown out of home by his parents. He’s cold and hungry and just needs a place to sleep. He spots a barge on a canal. It looks empty… but it isn’t… A story of consolation, baked beans and a retired Hells Angel.
Finally- Yuletide Override follows that familiar feeling when the Christmas crackers are being pulled but not everyone is feeling the Christmas cheer. Will anything persuade Ken to end his Christmas boycott? Will he just stay in the shed?
Midwinter Ignition is at the Three Minute Theatre from 28 November - 1 December.
