Ludus Ludius Improv - what's happening now?

With some big projects on the go at the moment, we take the time to enjoy the beauty of sharing.

Year 2 HERE WE GO!

It really is amazing to think that tonight we launch the second year of National Theatre Wales.  Our last launch - in November 2009, seems an age ago, and also yesterday!

 

Back then there was a certain crazy thrill to saying 'We'll do one show a month every month for a year, each one in a different place, each taking a different approach to theatre.' It seemed both a bit insane and exhilerating.  And they we'd add 'Plus one spectacular finale!' - not quite imagining what we…

NTW Passports, any more out there?

I have had 3 completed NTW 1st Year Passports so far - are there any more out there?

Please get in touch because I've invited the 3 completed so far to the Year 1 Wrap Party, the rest of you are missing out!

Maybe it's because Outdoors is still running in Aberystwyth so you have a little extra time, don't leave it too late.

More about Passport holders after the Year 2 Launch at midnight on the 26th May.
