NYTW Writing course and WOW on the Waterfront

As I was reading through the blogs I was thinking about what I could possibly contribute? These wonderful stories and reviews and what am I doing at the moment?

What could I tell people about?

After the inital doubt I realised not only do I have quite a bit going on that is interestingly theatre based, (in fact all the interesting things in my life are as it turns out, theatre based) but just today I returned from a fanastic weekend at the Urdd at the Millenium Centre in… Continue

The Great Welsh Musical?

Spent an enjoyable Saturday evening at Bridgend Youth Theatre's very good production of Gypsy. I have to admit it didn't seem an obvious choice of show for a youth theatre to me - a very American musical featuring a middle aged lead role and a bunch of strippers (the last time I saw it was on Broadway with Tyne Daly in the lead role); but the key to a successful musical comedy production is often sheer discipline and hard work, and Brigend Youth Theatre showed they have the guts and dedication… Continue

'Playtime With Us' review, Fair Play festival

Ok, I'll explain. We got there and they were all in the sun, thus the Main Stage of the Fair Play festival where we took to the stage at 3.15pm to perform 'Playtime with Us' was on dirt and gravel. We often were on the floor on the dusty ground that became our oxygen.



With Bristol Zoo and urination issues to wanting cake and dying from the sun's heat in the Sahara. We sang and improvised our way through the games… Continue

First Day...

Hi, I'm Edith and I'm an intern at NTW. (And I feel like I'm introducing myself at an AA meeting right now!)



Just to clear things up, today is not actually my first day. I just thought it sounded better as a a title than '7th Day at 5.40pm'! Also, it's testament to the fact that I haven't had a moment to post on here since my first day...



I started my 4-week internship here last Tuesday. To be honest, I left the offices on that day thinking that I was in for a really… Continue

My Research Trip

I’m in Wales for the week, hoping to pin down an idea. What am I looking for? Not sure. What’s my idea? I don’t know yet. Where am I going? The Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, Anglesey, the Pembrokeshire coast. What am I doing here? Looking at the light. Recording the weather. Walking. Thinking. Talking. Hoping to find something. Hoping to pin down an idea.



A forecast:



The week will begin in the Brecon Beacons, somewhere high up. There’ll be flat skies, a cold front (very…
