I am writing a book about the nine mad years of the Three Minute Theatre and all the crazy talented people who were involved in its life.

by John Topliff in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

I intend to tell the whole story of 3MT from, the early crazy days to the final months. The good, the bad, and the absolutely bonkers. I will be gathering all the archive material and interviewing many people who were involved in the 3MT story, from writers, actors, musicians, poets, performers, benefactors and audiences. 

Here are some chapter headings to be getting on with.

1. Prologue (What Gina and John did before all this numptiness)

2. Three Minutes of Madness on the Third Floor of Afflecks.

3. Poets, Players & Poltroonery.

4. Friends, Enemies, Pests & Acts of God.

5. Shakespeare and All That Jazz

6. Art For Art's Sake - Money For God's Sake!

7. Music Be The Food of Love.

8. Flim, Flam, Films and Fools.

9. The Pearls of Great Price.

10. First Nights and Last Words.

A donation of £12 will receive a copy of the book.
