Hi Lou (really enjoyed the show last night. Whole audience did. Very positive responses.)

Just posted this on the NTW site:

Saw the Hijinx Gulliver show last night in Llandrindod Wells. What a very good show. Funny. Entertaining. Moving. Great performances. Lovely concept and writing. Strong and imaginative direction. Excellent design and lighting. A great adventure and a fascinating journey into the human psyche and soul going via madness, creativity, politics, satire, love, paranoia, anxiety and the power of the imagination - all presented with consummate theatrical wit and confidence. A really good night out.

Hi Lou
Sunflowered is a play by Alex Vlahos. We did a rehearsed reading of it at the springboard festival this year. It's a really nice piece. I'll try and get to the show on the 3rd. Hopefully see you then. x

Hello Louise, thanks for your interest. There's a kind of holding site for The Republic - www.troti.org and some rough theoretical stuff on the Cynefin website www.cynefin.org. The next show in Wales will be at the Conwy Feast in October, though it's more site specific promenade than Labyrinth (Town Wall walk). In Portugal at the moment looking for a location to set up the first 'Republic'. Trust that you are still breaking the mold...all the best, Iwan

Hiya Lou, hope you are well? Just sending a quick message to say that I'm disappointed that due to other work commitments and not finishing that contract until November 14th I couldn't work on the Christmas show this year. I'm very disappointed as I loved working with you all on Cinders last year. Just to say good luck with it aswell and I'm looking forward to seeing Plum, probably in December! (And Gulliver at some point!)

Oh my gosh just saw my last message! Sorry I am such a dimwit for messaging you on the 27th ABOUT the 27th! Have been away and in clearing through my emails/social network messages I obviously didn't read your one properly! I am very sorry to mess you around. Am free 3 August if you still are, otherwise another day in August would be great too x
