Chaotic Combinations

On Saturday 18th many actors and writers will be brought together to team up in groups of an actor and a writer to create short monologues. They will be locked away in a rehearsal space for a full day of creativity with the outcome performed in the evening of 19th February.

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!

At 325 Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PG

Tickets available on the door £5 (£3 concession)

Audience comments from our last Chaotic Combination: "Well written, talented performance", "Very passionate, well acted and written", "Heart warmingly intelligent", "Witty, true, warm performance", "Excellent writing"

A Light In Every Window & Hope In Boxes
Straight from their 'Best Show' success at the Not Part Of Festival, Elysion Productions present a double bill of premieres from the award winning playwright Nicola Schofield - writer of Peacefully At Home.
Hope in Boxes sees two Grandchildren sorting throught their Nan's letters and photos. As scenes bring Nan's experiencs of the Second World War to life, the contrasts of social pressures across generations become blurred and issues of hidden sexuality are revealed. The more things change....
A Light in Every Window changes the mood and catapults the audience into a fast contemporary drama of parties, love, marriage, infidelity, shocking consequeances, and ultimately the subtlety of sweet revenge.
Directed by our very own Gayle Hare, these plays promise an evening to remember.
A sell-out at The Lowry - audiences loved it:
"Both brilliant and moving performances. Would have paid £10 just to see 1 of the shows! Thoroughly enjoyed it! 5/5"
"Brilliant, excellently portrayed. An enjoyable evening. 6/5"
Some great reviews as well
"The very competent writing coupled with five solid performances made for an evening of very intense, naturalistic theatre. (Remotegoat - Patrick Cunningham)
"Both these plays were enjoyable, and the cast were absolutely amazing, (Public Reviews - Tracey Lowe)
Coming to:
The Lantern Theatre (Liverpool) - 3 February (
Pavilion Arts Centre (Buxton) - 10/11 February (
Square Chapel (Halifax) - 16 February (
