"Get to know me before you judge me"

I've started my Wlaeslab project, 'Llaneski'- a project that creates a platform for the Polish community of Llanelli to express themselves creatively. I want to hear what they have to say and then discover a way of collaborating with them in making a piece of something creative.I'm sorry if it sounds vague, but right now it's exactly that. I'm not going to decide what it will be, what it will look like, sound like or feel like. This project is about developing my process of working with and…See More

Writing my DGW response play

I got an email last week from the Dirty Protest gang asking me if I'd like to write a short play for their Dirty, Gifted and Welsh event this year.

There were loads of people I knew there"."Oh god, there were load of people I knew there"."Shit, there were loads of writers, good writers, that I knew there"."What if my play's crap?""Am I political enough? What does that even mean? Isn't everyone political? But some…See More

John McGrath and other people say 'It Gets Better'.

Whilst me and my partner, Carolina Vasquez, have been working closely with the LGBT community of Swansea over the last few months for 'A Queer Christmas' we felt the need to make an It Gets Better Project™ video- one that inspires and supports young LGBT people in Wales. And so we invited LGBT theatre practitioners in Wales to spare an hour of their time to share their…See More

Bethan!

Thank you very much! My beautifully-packed bottle of Rioja (mmm!) arrived. I am a happy man.

Good luck!

No, I'm not there on Thursday but then, neither am I worried. After all, fine wine only improves with age doesn't it? Rather like directors, in fact.

Hello Bethan,

I am in Cardiff at the 6.30pm Paines Plough workshop this Wednesday (30th) if that's helpful.

Hope this is your inbox, Bethan. Not totally sure how to navigate this site.

Anyway, thanks for the prize though I hardly think my effort deserved recognition. I must say that red wine would be my choice but I may be a bit too far for a personal visit, nice though that would be. I did live in Knighton until last year but now I live just over the border near Bishop's Castle. My address is Avenue Lodge, Linley, Bishop's Castle, SY9 5DT. Phone 01588 650780

Best wishes,

Mick
