Peacefully At Home
 
 
**** "the piece delivers on emotional intensity due to the high quality of the writing and directing" Harriet Chandler, What's On Stage
 
"Nicola Schofield skilfully sets up an apparently close and devoted family which then falls apart before out eyes; the shocks keep coming right up to the very last moment." Caroline May, UK Theatre Network
 
"Heart-felt, closely observed and provocative work. Wonderful sense of timing to heighten the emotions. Really enjoyable. 5/5"; "Heart wrenching stuff. Well performed by all!”; "Superbly entertaining. A treat. 5/5" Audience members
 
It then went to on to Smiths.

Elysion Productions "Dev's Army"
Our sister company, Elysion Productions, will be presenting Dev's Army at the Not Part of, Buxton and Preston festivals:
 
A rich, dark comedy in the grand Irish tradition - instantly recognisable characters and oozing charm. This play peeks into the classic subtleties of Irish allegiances through local defence volunteers and 'a body on the beach' -   nothing is as black and white as we think when it's coloured green!

The play was shortlisted twice in 2010 for the Oxford Playhouse New Writing Competition, and the Drama Association of Wales Playwriting Competition. It was one of two winners of the Galway Theatre Festival New Writing Competition - through which it received a rehearsed reading.

Our new blog
We have a new blog - come and follow us at http://organisedchaosproductions.wordpress.com/
 
With this we are hoping to bring our audiences an insight to what we get up to behind the scenes and to the teams of people we work with.
 
Coming up we have a series of questions answered by the Peacefully At Home team.
 
Chaotic Combinations (Creative Calls)

Saturday May 14th saw actors and writers pair up to write a monologue, Sunday was for last minute rehearsals with the performance in the evening in front of a live audience.

11 monologues were performed to a sell-out audience.

Our winners were Samantha Edwards and Jeff Caffrey with Veronica Hare and Candice Buchanan in second place - all are going on to the finale in December.

"Well written, talented performance", "Very passionate, well acted and written", "Witty, true, warm performance", "Excellent writing" Audience members

"The atmosphere of the weekend was fun and supportive", "My success in completing this exercise has boosted my confidence greatly", "This exercise was a great idea and beneficial to all involved – thank you!", "I thoroughly enjoyed it" Participants

All Because Of Molly (Casting & Creative Calls)
 
As Jaime and Casey lead us through memories of the development of their unlikely relationship, its birth in playground adversity, trials of teenage years and university separation, adulthood and the dating game, the play provokes audiences to contemplate the essence of friendship. But are we ready to consider whether our own friendships would survive the test that confronts them? 
 
Debuting at The Lowry (Salford Quays) prior to a North-West tour at The Continental (Preston), Lantern Theatre (Liverpool), Square Chapel (Halifax) and Pavilion Arts Centre (Buxton) it was one of the 2010 24:7 Theatre Festivals rehearsed readings.
 
We would like to thank everyone who applied and auditioned/interviewed and we are pleased to announce the team is currently:
 
Jaime - Alison Flevill
Casey - Laura Lindsay
Juror One  - Christabel Brown
Juror Two - Tamira Hamam
Understudy - Kate Collins
 
Writer - Paul Ferguson
Director - James Baker
Set/Costume Designer - Kirsty Nicol
Stage Manager - Jake Street
 
We're also now looking to fill the following positions:

You're Never Too Old (Casting and Creative Calls)
One bench.
Two pensioners.
Lots of questions.

When Ada meets Tommy and tells him about her eventful day trip to London the pair find themselves pondering some vital issues:
Is there a God?
What’s the point of life?
Why do you only get an ‘oo’ with Typhoo?
They don’t have any answers and they don’t have much time.
Perhaps the solution is to simply grow old disgracefully.

A heart-warming comedy about faith, families and fig rolls.
 
Debuting at Taurus Bar (Manchester) 19th-22nd October we will hopefully be taking the show to festivals in Levenshulme, Buxton and Preston.

 We are now currently casting for the following roles:

Ada - 60+
