Silent State at Starting at Oriel Wrexham and multiple locations

May 10, 2014 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Silent StateStop the silence. Join the resistance.Music has been banned in the town of Wrexham and silence ensues. The town is now a very different place, regimented and controlled, whilst the black market thrives with secret traders dealing in bootleg musical experiences. Anyone seen cavorting, making melodic merry, or moving rhythmically are immediately detained. Being caught in possession of musical artefacts of any kind comes with a very high price.   But there is hope....rumours are…See More

Clytemnestra - Up and Running!

 

Well, it was 6 weeks ago that we embarked on rehearsals for Sherman Cymru's production of Clytemnestra, adapted by former National Poet of Wales, Gwyneth Lewis.

After our readthrough on the first day, which clocked in at a far-from-mammoth 45 minutes, I think a few of us maybe questioned whether we were going to need 5 and a half week…

An Offer of Marriage and My First Born...

Hi Matthew

Not to worry - this is exactly the reason we've moved away from issuing a 'call for submissions'. You can send it in any time.

Our next shortlisting day will be at the end of Nov for projects taking place sometime after after December.

Happy to meet up and talk through what you would like to work on if you would like?

Cheers!

Gosh, I hope so. If I'm ever happy with this draft. You?

At 21:51 on February 1, 2013, Rae Leaver said…

Finally got round to updating my profile properly! Hello there!

At 15:42 on August 1, 2012, Buddug James Jones said…

Yes, next time we bumb into eachother let's try and make sure it's not outside the toilets haha! I'll definitley keep you updated, although I'm not sure if we'll be up to much until the play is finished beign written so it might be a while. Are you doing anything soon that I could come along and see? I loved the lifft in Sherman Swingers and would love to see more of your stuff!

Bud

Hi Matthew! Unfortunatly I missed it...I did the classic mistake of not booking ahead and there were no tickets left by the time I got to Bristol. How did it go? I didn't know you were working on it! Is it going to be on again in the future?

I did catch Bear Trap's show however. Did you get a chance to catch it?

 

Hope you're well,

Buddug
