Last Christmas

International Anthony Burgess Centre, Manchester

Gift yourself a little dark relief from the glitz with this unique project. Expect spoken word, theatre and film from The Writing Squad set to live music by No Dice Collective composers. The theme? Christmas apocalypse of course.

After the roaring success of their spoken word collaboration, followed by the addition of theatre last year, No Dice Collective are expanding their scope once more with a live short film screening, and full on collaboration between six composers and six writers from The Writing Squad: Georgia Affonso, James Varney,  Sarah Fletcher, Gregory Kearns, Riley Bramley-Dymond and Ryan Watson.

So what happens at the Christmas apocalypse? Well, Michael wants to leg it to safety but Sarah just wants to watch Doctor Who. A young artist washes up on the beach at Christmas day and is left to contend with the vices of celebrity. Christmas herself is feeling a bit blue Рso blue in fact that she disappears completely. You will also meet the last person on earth, hear a story about the strangeness of human rituals, and be subject to a climate change so severe, everyone misses the second coming!

We will also be premiering an apocalyptic piece by Anthony Burgess himself.If you like quality music and writing, in a cosy intimate setting with plenty of time to get a drink and catch up with your friends, this is the gig for you.

Tickets £5-10
