Bottled Wasps by Paul Buie
Grace and Patrick have returned to the scene of their great romantic adventure, the small seaside hotel where they stayed when they left their respective partners in order to be together. During the course of an evening they realise that much has changed. Walter, mine host, has his own issues: defender of his country and its traditions and what thanks do you get? With a complimentary bar and a sniper’s rifle that can take off the top of your head from half a mile away, how bad can it get?

Script Call
From our 2009 Script Call four scripts were chosen – all debuting in Manchester with great reviews some of the scripts went on to be performed as part of the Buxton Fringe Festival, Preston Tringe Festival, Write Now Festival, and New Wimbledon Studio Theatre. We chose two scripts from our 2010 call which were produced last year in Manchester, Buxton and Salford. We also produced the debut of All Because Of Molly which debtuted at The Lowry and went on to a North West tour. 
Our 2011 script call has been given Grants For The Arts funding from the Arts Council and the scripts - Bottled Waps and After Words - will debut in Manchester before touring the North West in the autumn.
We are now looking for new scripts to work with. We have guaranteed dates at The Lowry in April 2013 to debut two new shows so we are now looking for two new scripts to work with in 2013 for a North West tour.
The call will close on the 30th April.

They will compete against each other and the winner will go on to the grand final in December to compete against other Chaotic Combinations. 

Who wins? You (the audience) decide!

AfterWords by Michael Hart
'AfterWords' charts the journey of Julie, a recent arrival in the afterlife, as she attempts to be reacquainted with her husband Derek who passed away many years before. The controlling dynamic throughout is that in the afterlife your physical appearance is determined by the age at which you were happiest in life. This simple conceit has significant effects on the relationships between husband and wife, father and daughter and past and present. Julie took her own life to be with Derek. This afterlife will keep them apart forever.
