THE SEIGE OF CHRISTMAS
Created by Slung Low
Working with Contact and Slung Low, Amy co-wrote and performed in The Siege of Christmas. An immersive theatrical adventure for young audiences and the taller people that look after them.
'Right, so if a gang of naughty, bad and ferocious misfits decided to kidnap the Spirit of Christmas, where would they stash her? ‘Exactly. In a castle. And there’s only one castle in Manchester, and some fool decided to put a theatre in it. You should never put a theatre in a castle, it’s too dangerous. ‘So what are you waiting for? Are you going to come and rescue me or what?’
Starting outside the main doors of Contact, and roaming throughout our unique castle-y building, The Siege of Christmas was a theatrical adventure for young audiences and the taller people that look after them. It was made by the award-winning Contact Young Company and Slung Low who made the brilliant 59 Minutes to Save Christmas, and the acclaimed Camelot: The Shining City.
