The very first ‘ Three Minute Theatre Festival’ kicks off on Saturday 16th October at 1:00pm, followed by a second helping on Saturday 23rd in what has to be the Norths smallest, fastest, new theatre. Situated on the 3rd floor, it brings together an exciting collection of original work by writers from all over the North West.
The first programme offers a wide range of themes and styles; from a touching musical reflection on motherhood, to the horrors of the First World War,via the perils and humour of work, life, language, old age and a trip to the seaside.
Performed by the writers themselves, professional actors, and members of the Ghosts in the Machine Theatre Company, the ‘Three Minute Theatre’ is dedicated to keeping alive the spirit of creativity and the belief that Theatre is all around us and always will be; and it only takes a few minutes!
