"A person we don’t know. A concept we don’t believe is possible. A tragedy that might not have happened. In half an hour, all will become clear... Maybe."



From the team that brought the Valentine special Magnets earlier this year, comes a new short play for one… Continue

invisible theatre

As part of the IKEA Cardiff collaboration with the charity AMuse myself and Jennifer Hartley put together a group of people who didn't know each other but had met during various workshops organised by Theatre Versus Oppression in Cardiff. We were going to do a radical reworkling of the morning of the wedding from Blood Wedding. Only it didn't work out like that....



for details of the how the invisible drama really became invisible see Jennifer's very entertaining blog of the event… Continue

Day 4 - Road Trip

After a full hearty Welsh breakfast we rolled down the hill to explore the wonders of Barmouth. It’s a captivating blend of faded Victorian grandeur; amusement arcade awfulness; bric-a-brac shops galore and numerous chapels of all denominations now crudely and unsympathetically converted into Bargain Bin stores one, horrifyingly, placing the till in the pulpit. I could almost hear the generations of Calvanistic Methodist ghosts who’d worshipped in these chapels for a century or more, groaning… Continue

Launching... Groups!

We're launching a new feature called groups on the National Theatre Wales site today. Here's some of our thinking behind it.



This community now has nearly 500 members from all over Wales and the world. We're a diverse bunch in the theatre scene - we have writers, actors, directors, enthusiasts, musicians, other companies, people "formerly known as the audience" and more.



Our aim with this site… Continue

Group Wisdom

The eagle eyed among you have already spotted a new development on the site. GROUPS (yeah kinda like the thing on the facewhatsit site) is a way for folk with a common interest to share info, ideas, advice. GROUPS will be coming online properly in the next few days, but basically you can join ours, or you can start your own. The official National Theatre Wales groups so far are for ACTORS, WRITERS, CREATIVE PEOPLE and TEAM MEMBERS. And no, you don't have to choose between them, you can have as… Continue

Day 3 - Road Trip

Sian’s chanting worked, the heavens opened and the boat trip was cancelled.

The visit to the island will have to wait but in the meantime here are a few images of the interior we found on the web.



So onwards to Barmouth via Fishguard through horizontal sheets of rain. We stopped for lunch at Melin Tregwynt and met with Mill owners Eifion and Amanda - the Welsh woolen wunder duo who have reinvented the traditional Welsh blanket, making their beautiful new designs (blankets,… Continue

Road Trip - Day 2

Day 2



Met up with Graham Fry at his sea front hotel The Royal Lion, a sturdy statuesque figure who greets us on the doorstep with a tray of home made scones slathered with proper Welsh salty butter.



Graham has owned St Catherines Fort for the last 40 years.



He immediately reports an incident from the night before, bizarrely enough two people were arrested for trespassing on his island, the first time in forty years that the police actually charged someone. We… Continue

Road Trip - Day 1

1st port of call, Porthcawl



On driving into Porthcawl Sian and I immediately fell into nostalgia as we both as kids spent many a summer’s holiday there. Our very red Vauxhall was transformed into a green half-timbered Morris minor packed with five screaming children, a drooling dog, Sian’s mam and dad, beach paraphernalia (including essential stripey wind breaker as Rest Bay was always windy) and a pressure cooker full of steaming stew!



No beach visit yesterday but to the… Continue
