3rd Age Critic Review, 'Flights of Fancy'. Alison Hughes, Park and Dare Theatre 17.05.2013

Upon receiving our ration books in exchange for theatre tickets, it was evident the performance of “Flights of Fancy” would transport us back in time. Leaving the ‘departure lounge’ we followed, not the usual route to our seats, but, via a stark black corridor marking past decades and along the way giving a glimpse of final backstage preparations, a route to the stage .From this position the audience was well positioned to admire the beauty of the…

3rd Age Critic Review DIARY OF A MADMAN Leslie Herman Jones Sherman Cymru Thursday 23 May 2013

Theatre 2's intimate performance space provided an apt arena for Living Pictures Productions’ Diary of a Madman. As the audience entered in a dim light, a large man lay on his back, asleep or dead I wondered, on a square platform of plain wooden pallets, an origami bird sat on his…

A look back at #ntwjapan

Hello all,

A thing we do at National Theatre Wales is at the end of the project, we get together to talk about how it went. We call this a 360 meeting, and yesterday, all the team got together to share their experience of #ntwjapan.

For this session yesterday, I made a little video to show the team a little snapshot of my experience, and I thought I'd share it with you all here.

Hope you all enjoy.

3rd Age Critic Review by Marcia Humphries Say it With Flowers (preview, Sherman Theatre 16th May)

An evening of sheer showbiz at the Sherman!The audience included people who had known and worked with Dorothy Squires,even some who had lived at her lavish homes in the good times.Both the play's authors were present, mingling beforehand and giving an enlightening question and answer session afterwards.The effect of the production was to make you forget you were seeing a play at all. It was more like being allowed to peek into the life of someone going from rags to riches back to rags. The… Continue

FLIGHTS OF FANCY at Parc And Dare Theatre, Treorci, Friday 17th May. Review by Elizabeth Sumner.

 

The Parc and Dare Theatre at Treorci celebrated its centenary with a truly magnificent Flight of Fancy.  The evening of dance and music was a joy.  Here was a beautiful, traditional theatre for the using, and use it they did.  By placing the audience on stage and thus using the auditorium and circles for the performance meant an innovative use of space.  Even getting to our seats involved walking through corridors used by the artists in various…

New Writing Book Club

I dont read enough new plays........I dont know where to start.

Is there a book club you can join that sends you a couple of new plays a month, you read them and send them back? Or you download it to your e-reader and it expires after a month? If not.....why not? Seems like a great way to get new work out there, and a great way to get people who otherwise would not take the time to find this new writing themselves reading and producing. So I guess the main points im asking for advise…

Say it With Flowers

“Say it with Flowers” , Preview Performance, Sherman Theatre,16 May,2013.Brian Roper,3rd Age Critic.



It’s not far from Pontyberem to Trebanog but when “via” includes marriage to 007 , playing to packed houses in Hollywood and at The London Palladium and suing Rupert Murdoch it seems to be  a lot further.



Dorothy Squires achieved much but it was at a price . Her drive bordered…
