Event Description

A48 Theatre Company (Cardiff-based)

‘The Road Ahead’


This is YOUR opportunity to work on a Trilogy of new short plays, written by a renowned, published, Barry-based poet and author. Three slivers of contemporary life, posing some intriguing situations and questions.



Clifton Suspension Bridge – an infamous suicide spot. A woman stands on the bridge, reading a notice about The Samaritans. She considers the impact the choices people make may have on the lives of others. The piece is largely a monologue.

Unnamed Woman: Aged 18-30;

Gemma: Aged 18-30. (A small part, with the possibility of doubling up with a part in one of the other pieces.)

“Some Kind of Immortality”

A man uses sperm donation, as a sideline, to financially support his family. He hides this activity from his wife in an usual way. He has also “gone rogue/ underground” – not using established companies – in order to avoid any strict guidelines and bureaucracy. So, with no restrictions on the number of “clients” or “donations”, he can make much more cash! The piece is largely a monologue.

Man: Aged 40-50;

Alice: Aged 30-40. (A small part, on stage throughout, with the possibility of doubling up with a part in one of the other pieces.


“A Cuckoo in the Nest”

A University Lecturer takes in an apparently terminally ill student, but her act of kindness has unforeseen consequences. Each character has at least one monologue.

Sally: A University Lecturer; Aged 40-50;

Mike: Sally’s husband; Aged 40-50;

Jenny: Their daughter – a student; Aged early 20’s;

Jane: A student – the cuckoo in the nest of the title; Aged early 20’s.



At “The Talent Shack”, Unit 17, Freemans Parc, Penarth Road, CARDIFF CF11 8EQ;

Saturday 25 May, 10am to 1pm;

Sunday 26 May, 10am to 1pm.

Individual auditions – 20-minute slots. No preparation required; we will give you a speech to look at and read on the day.



Commencing the last week in May, until the performances – requiring a commitment of a minimum of 4 hours per week.

“The Talent Shack” – Tuesdays 7 to 9pm; Sundays 10am to 12noon. Additional rehearsals may be called, or evenings may be substituted.

The pieces can be rehearsed one to one, in the main, so we can be a little flexible in respect of rehearsals and availability.



FRIDAY 12 JULY – 7.30pm – “The Glam”, ‘The Memo Arts Centre’, BARRY;


TUESDAY 16 JULY – 7.30pm – “Llanover Hall”, Canton, CARDIFF

We are also trying to confirm one other venue, for a third performance, around the above dates.
