Ten Tiny Plays About Football5th September 2015 by Martin Gibbons
What does football mean to you?
We asked fans of Manchester City and Manchester United to tell their own stories in their own words about what it is to be a football fan. We were inundated with five minute plays, some from fans who had never written before, and have selected ten to be performed script-in-hand by a team of professional actors on Saturday 19 September at 5.30pm.
We received a wide variety of scripts and have come up with what we know will be a unique and exciting event. The writers who will see their selected work performed for the very first time are:
Adam Boyle – Our Kid
Victoria Brazier – Team
Dominic Burgess – Car Parked
Stephen Davies – The Old Cliché
Claire Faulkner – Who Ate All The Pies
Maggie Ollerenshaw – Lost Lads
Daryn Simon – Young Munich
Micah Smith – Something to Chat About
Louise Turner – Trophy Wife, The Shirley Valentine of Manchester
Catherine Whitmore – We Do It For Each Other
TEN TINY PLAYS ABOUT FOOTBALL accompanies Monkeywood Theatre’s main production in the Quays Theatre, BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM, a brand new show exploring and celebrating football fandom in Manchester.
Roundabout is a beautiful pop-up, in-the-round theatre by the UK’s national theatre of new plays, Paines Plough. A self-contained circular auditorium, Roundabout has travelled around the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights to people’s doorsteps and will pitch up on the plaza in front of The Lowry from 16 – 20 September 2015.
TEN TINY PLAYS is produced by Monkeywood Theatre in association with The Lowry. It is supported by Arts Council England and the Ernest Cook Trust.Share on Facebook or Tweet This
