Hello!

Profile Information

What I do:
Freelance Producer; Producer at Waking Exploits; former Company/Executive Assistant at NTW and former Associate Producer at Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru
A little more about me:
I love theatre and am keen on new writing, the audience and its relationship with live action. I was part of the team that set up National Theatre Wales in 2009, and loved working there! I know produce on a freelance basis with companies including: Dirty Protest and Waking Exploits as well as with independent artists.

In 2010, I co-founded theatre company Waking Exploits, taking work rarely seen in Wales on tour. http://www.wakingexploits.co.uk

I'm also known for "knowing what I like, and not being afraid of saying it!"
Location:
Cardiff
Projects I’m working on:
Playwrights Studio Wales (with Tim Price)

Hello - I just wanted to drop by and say how exciting Playwright's Studio Wales sounds. Do you have a newsletter or anything similar I can subscribe to so as to get updates?

Cheers and good luck for the future!

Hi Michael, thanks for the invite and welcome. I am very interested in working with you if anything suitable comes up via NTW so will keep an eye out.

Had a decent audience tonight at Newtown about 30ish but very appreciative I thought of the play. Iain sorted out fab hotels and bought a round which we really appreciated too. Hope you can make it to Aber on Saturday.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the welcome message. I'm just getting the hang of my profile and slowly building up my friends list so I've been slow wih a reply. I never realised how useful being a part of the community would be, I've connected with some people I haven't seen for a while so that's a plus!

All the Best

Whistleblowers and our right to know

I've been thinking recently about the recent leaks from Edward Snowden, our internet security and who's watching who. George Orwell's 1984 seems all the more predictive of todays Big Brother like society doesn't it? I don't think it is a great revelation that the governments of the world are watching us and what we do online. Deep down though aren't we all aware that this stuff is…

National Theatre Wales on Anglesey

We are approaching the end of our first week resident on Anglesey (Ynys Môn), and we couldn't have wished for a better week. The sun has been shining, we've made friends with the locals, and I almost bought a onesie to go with my ice-cream and sweets the other day. 

This week we've been busy setting up and opening two shops on the high streets of …
