TEAM is a fantastic thing - and as many readers will know I can enthuse at length - but a strangers next question will often be: 'So, what is TEAM?' And then I'm stumped.

Critical Chinwag Review - Light Waves Dark Skies

I was delighted to host the Critical Chinwag for We Made This' production of Light Waves Dark Skies, especially as it was originally supported by WalesLab. The piece has really developed under Matt Ball's direction but is very much a collaborative piece, made through devising.



The play is centred around the idea of light. Light in the extreme (such as the stars), light in the everyday (such a torch or lights in the home) and light in the minutiae (light from screens such as the iPad… Continue

Five Things That I Learned From Stories of the Streets

I was delighted to co-produce my second Stories of the Streets event for TEAM at the Angel Hotel on 28th January 2016. Here's five of the lessons that I personally learned during the process in no particular order.



1. NEW WRITING IS NOT DEAD - Over 100 people attended the event on a wet Thursday in January to see five new short plays by emerging (and in some cases totally new) playwrights. It was brilliant to see how audiences responded to the different worlds presented to them in… Continue
