Hello TEAM!

Fio are holding Open Rehearsals this Friday @ The Other Room for our upcoming production of The Mountaintop!

We are having a drop-in session between 12- 16:00. A great chance to see whats going on in the rehearsal room and a sneak peek of the show!

Plus a great chance to have a chat and meet new London and Cardiff company FIO and talk with you about the work we do and upcoming projects and opportunities.


Cardiff’s pub theatre The Other Room, located in Porter’s and winner of The Stage’s Fringe Theatre of the Year Award, opens its Autumn / Winter season on 4 October with a fictional depiction of the Reverend Martin Luther King's last night on earth before his assassination. The Mountaintop by Katori Hall is produced by Cardiff and London-based company Fio, and will run during Black History Month.

The Mountaintop is set in a motel room in Memphis, Tennessee. An exhausted King returns from a prophetic speech during the sanitation workers’ strike and is visited by a mysterious maid, Camae, with a much greater mission than delivering his coffee.

Vividly theatrical and powerfully emotive, The Mountaintop won the Olivier Award for Best New Play in 2010. It is a drama about leadership, legacy and mortality and explores themes of poverty, racism and the way to deal with impending death. The play will be directed by its Artistic Director Abdul Shayek, former Creative Associate of National Theatre Wales, who comments:

“The Mountaintop spoke to me in way no other play had for some time now. It provoked a number of emotions within me, from amusement to anger and frustration. I’d like to achieve that with our audiences and start a wider conversation around race, prejudice and importantly the need for us to embrace each other's differences. I want to take people on a journey into a world which starts off as a mundane, rainy night and then quickly becomes a story which challenges and provokes its audience.”

The Mountaintop is on at The Other Room 4-15 October and tickets are available now from To keep updated on The Other Room, you can also follow the team on Twitter @TORtheatre and Facebook or follow FIO on Twitter/ Instagram @wearefio and Facebook

Look forward to meeting some of you!

Hello most excellent TEAM!

On Saturday 1st October there will be a launch event at the Wales Millennium Centre to mark Black History Month Wales, organised by BHM Wales committee and Race Council Cymru.

This is a FREE event from 12:00 until 18:00, so get yourselves over there to watch some talented young black performers, enjoy delicious Caribbean cuisine and meet 20 of the organisation's partners at their Diaspora goods/information stalls. A spectacular event not to be missed!

A new Welsh story about fighting for community, the action unfolds through physical theatre, rousing Welsh folk song and new writing, bringing to life a valley torn apart by their council, big business and eventually themselves.
The piece was developed in residency in the Rhondda Valley, Wales, working with one of the few still standing ex - mining theatres of the 1800’s to tell the story of a family, who against all odds, fought for what they believed in.


We’d love for TEAM members to join us on Friday 16/ Saturday 17 September 8pm at the special rate of £5 per ticket. This offer will be limited to 10 tickets per performances, so it’ll be first come, first served. 

An RCT Theatres Co- Production.


Please contact Chapter to book your tickets. 029 2030 4400

As part of our production of The Mountaintop @ The Other Room we are looking to programme two Speak Easy Events on 8th and 15th October. 

What is a Speak Easy Event? 

Fio want to bring people together in a conversation about race, equality and poverty in 2016. As well as having fun and enjoying great acts!

We will Look at the themes of The Mountaintop. Asking what has changed since the death of Martin Luther King? What still needs to change?

We will be working with Black History Month Wales, Stand Upto Racism and other organisations to programme two event days including speeches, discussions, music, poetry and more. 

We are looking for people who are interested, inspired and motivated by issues around racism, poverty and equality and want to get involved. If you have an act you think could be part of this event then please get in contact!
