Sounds very exciting. I submitted my details to Sam a few weeks ago for the Beach, but would be very keen to get involved with any of those projects. Plus, I'm just about to move back to Cardiff, so be totally local too.

Casting Update

It will soon be time to send out casting breakdowns for ‘Love Steals Us From Loneliness’ and ‘The Dark Philosophers’, both of which will be cast through a similar process to our opening trilogy of shows. In the meantime, however, we thought it would be good to update our actors’ group about casting for our summer productions, which have all been fairly unique in their casting requirements.

‘For Mountain Sand and Sea’, opening June, features five performers who have been ‘curated’ by the production’s artistic director Marc Rhys. A mix of live artists, visual artists and movement artists, they will bring a very different kind of performance to life.

‘The Beach’ is an interactive game experience for audiences, developed with Hide and Seek. The process of development for this project involves a series of ‘game designs’ as we test out what the audience experience will be. We are still not quite sure whether the roles in this piece will be for actors playing parts, or more for ‘facilitators’ helping the audiences through the experience. We expect to know exactly what’s needed in the next couple of weeks.

‘The Persians’ directed by Mike Pearson involves a mix between the kind of ‘performance curating’ used for Marc Rees’s show, and some more conventional casting. We’ve been looking through all our records of actors to recommend people to Mike as part of his unique process and we hope that the list of artists involved will be completed in the next few weeks.

Breakdowns for ‘Love Steals Us From Loneliness’ and ‘The Dark Philosophers’ will be posted here in the next couple of months. We expect to start casting during the summer.

Personally, I'm looking forward to getting back to auditions and then rehearsals for Love Steals Us. J

Hi, this was originally a blog post, just spreading the word for Tony:

Twelfth Night Production...Viola where are you?

Hi folks. In the last weeks of July this year I am directing an open air production of "Twelfth Night" for CWMPAS Theatre. We shall be performing the play at Tredegar House , Newport, during the week 18 - 24th July.

Unfortunately we have lost our Viola, no, we haven't just mislaid her temporarily ! Is there anyone out there who might be interested in auditioning for the part ?

If so, why not give me a ring on 01443 690457 to have a chat. If I am not available, then just leave your number and I'll get back to you

Hope to hear from you

Tony Thomas

A little addition to the last advert. The initial showings will be non-paying, however if and when we secure additional showings in theatres, it'll all be transparent and any profits split accordingly.

Hiya! A sneaky audition to tell you all about

Inky Quill Productions
The Gower Pub
29 Gwennyth Street, Cardiff, CF24 4PH
Date: 27th March

Time: 2pm-6pm

From the Cardiff based company that brought you 2009's Away Now to War, comes a brand new comedy play, Death & The Monster.

Rick Allden was a finalist (I didn't write this...)in The Sherman ScriptSlam competition 2009 with his anarchic and lyrical jaunt The Devil's Jig, a play riddled with angst wracked wenches and gallant highwaymen.

If you happened to catch that, then you'll love Death & The Monster, it's, like, way better.

Male and female roles available. Ages 18+ welcome.

The production will open at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, with two performances between Tuesday 22nd and Friday 25th June. There will be the opportunity to play in further venues throughout July.

I'm looking for help with any Dublin or Irish contacts to help promote my performances at The James Joyce Centre, Dublin, from 3rd to 8th May 2010, of "Take Desire Away", my new solo piece about the poet A.E.Housman. My e-mail is

After it's successful run last year at Chapter Arts Centre, Faction Collective transfer their production of Anthony Neilson's, 'The Censor' to the Theatre Royal Bath (Ustinov) this March (Thursday 18th - Saturday 20th).

If you missed it last time round, come check it out!

'The main question is whether The Censor is a valid artistic proposition or simple perversion, but the point is that you decide for yourself by drawing your own boundaries' (SOUTH WALES ECHO)

'We can’t help feeling that the Faction Collective are onto something with their thread of plays, which jolt their punters into on-the-spot moral decisions usually reserved for boorish pub flippancy. We look forward to seeing what comes next.' (THE SPROUT)

Hi! I'm about to start the final week of rehearsals for a new play - a world premiere, in fact - "Heidegger's Shadow", in which I play 'Martin Heidegger', which opens on 23rd at The Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton, London N1, and runs for four weeks. So, I won't be getting home again to Wales for a while. But, if anyone's in London and is able to get along, please do come and say hello! Check out:-
Heidegger is considered one of the most important philosophers of the 20th Century, but he was also a card-carrying Member of the Nazi Party; a famous Lecturer and a Lothario (married to an Anti-Semite, whilst having an affair with one of his young Jewish students, Hannah Arendt) - something for everyone! Hwyl, Mansel.
