Life in a Small-Scale Theatre Company - Aberystwyth Mon Amour

Well, the countdown begins:Yesterday, we had our first publicity event in Aberystwyth. A question and answer session hosted by the Museum, assisted by the Tourist Office and helped along by the public of Aber afterwards with a rather splendid walking tour along the Prom investigating Louie Knight's Aberystwyth.People were fascinated by the process of converting a novel to a play, and Malcolm talked very eloquently about the influences and ideas that led to the creation of Louie, Calamity and…See More

Life in a Small-Scale Theatre Company - Aberystwyth Mon Amour

On Friday, we ventured up to Aber to film different shots for the promo of the show. The weather was absolutely fabulous - perfect for Patagonia Day...The sort of day that would make Eeyore worry for Esmerelda's well-being on the beach, and the sort of day that would make Sospan a VERY wealthy man indeed...Thank you to everyone…See More

Profile Information

What I do:
I am an actor of twenty years' experience in national, subsidised, commercial and touring theatre. I have been lucky enough to work all over the country and I also run a small-scale touring company called Lighthouse Theatre, based in Swansea.
A little more about me:
In Wales, I have worked for a number of companies, including Frank Vickery's Grassroots, Fluellen Theatre Co., The Torch in Milford and at Theatr Clwyd. Our small-scale touring company, Lighthouse Theatre, benefits from Arts Council backing in a number of ways, and we have over the years, presented new plays, adaptations of classics and workshops all over the country. A few years ago, we toured a new piece about the blitz' on Swansea called 'Goat Street Runners'. Our adaptation of Noel Coward's 'Still Life' toured Wales, England and South America in 2011 and we returned there in 2013 with a four-person version of 'She Stoops to Conquer'.
Location:
Swansea
Projects I’m working on:
In 2014, we are working on our contribution to the Dylan Thomas Centenary celebrations - a promenade production of 'Return Journey' through the streets of Swansea, supported by DT100, the National Waterfront Museum and the DTCentre. I will be performing our own tribute to DT's youth, 'Reminiscences of Childhood' in venues all over Britain and I have been making an interactive website with Telesgop called, Bardd Roc a Roll. It's not all Dylan though...
We are working with the Swansea Grand and Malcolm Pryce on adapting his novel, 'Aberystwyth Mon Amour', for the stage. We are presenting the wonderful one-act play about Wilfred Owen, 'On Scarborough Front', for schools in Wales and we are adapting Dickens' 'The Chimes' for the our Christmas tour.

Hi Adrian, sorry for the long delayed response. I'm currently prepping for a play I've developed back in Feb 2012, just sent the link actually for an invite.

I've just done a spate of Voiceovers actually one for Aardman Animation, one for Global Radio in Cardiff Bay & one for Footstep Productions in London for a Children's Illustrated Dictionary. Am also about to shoot a film with Gareth J. Lewis who is a 3rd A.D. in the UK Film Industry and that's happening this weekend.

How are things with you? How's Sonia getting on?

Hope you're both well and keeping busy.

Great to hear from you. Did Andrew say that we're working together on a community opera in Merthyr? I'm coordinating the project based on the 10th Century history of the Llangorse Crannog working with H4A, the Museum, Cardiff Uni. Will have an exhibition 19th & 20th Jan at Theatr Soar if you can come.  Then the opera based on the historical research will be performed in April.

Best wishes
