THE COLLECTIVE COLLECTED

The 10 Minutes A Month Playwriting Collective was started in 2016 as a means to keep writers writing. Embracing the uprising of the short play, each month, the Collective sets an one word theme and challenges whoever wants to be challenged to write a 10 minute play on that subject, with whatever tone, and in whatever style they desire. Taken from the first 10 themes, we are pleased to showcase the work of 16 writers over 2 weeks (8 plays one week, and 8 different pieces the next), covering foolishness, dormitories, wonderland, europe, jargon, nightmares, ambushes, divorce, tourists and space.

 

Written by:

Emily Carmichael, Eddie Coleman, Julia Collier, Rob De La Poer, Caroline Doyle, Nick Edwards, Ian Green, Lily Ann Green, Matthew Lyne, Alan Maddrell, Andy Marchant, Asma Mani, Adam Moulder, Nick Mouton, Matthew Partridge and Kat Wootton

LIFE BOAT

Martin visits Helda every Thursday.  For years he's been getting his kicks from spanks, gags and domination.  But tonight something has changed.  Martin wants to play a different game but Helda insists that the rules stay the same.  Martin invites Helda to take a risk, but not in the way she is used to.  LIFE BOAT is a play that involves itself in sex, intimacy and our need for human connection along with our fears and resistance to attachment.  It asks the question: Is Life really too short?  And if it is, what's love got to do with it?

JOY DIVISION - the Nazi Sex Slaves Story

Warning: Contains text of a sensitive nature  

In the 70s and early 80s, the well-known Manchester band, Joy Division, took their name from events had nothing to do with joy. The name comes from forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. In these camps, thousands of young women, Polish Catholic mostly were used as sex slaves for German officers before they went to fight on the Russian front. They were also used by German guards in a odd logic that by providing a pretty women, it would stop the male camp gaurds having any sexual urges towards the male Jewish and homosexual inmates. Many of these girls shared the same hatred of the Jews as the Nazi's, as they saw them as just having to wait on tables or just clean, not knowing what was really happening in other camps. 

These young girls, known as 'Feld Hure' (Field Whores), underwent daily 'enjoyment duty' where three bad reports were met with brutal levels of punishment. The question is, in such dire circumstances, do humans take solace in the companionship of others suffering the same fate? Or does an individual's supposed submission give them greater dominance and a longer shelf life? We then see the same girls in a brothel today. This play has been seen at numerous theatres since 2003 including performed by RADA in 2013
