My colleague and I have created a music theatre piece which we have toured to small regional venues on and off for two years, but recently we have made some changes to the show in our quest to improve it. So it is less polished than the version we toured, but hopefully more focused in terms of actual content. But there are still some very clunky areas, and we are still very far away from the finished piece we think it can one day become... and this is why we need your help! We have organised a performance and feedback night in Cardiff on 18th November specifically for an invited audience of theatre makers and creative minds. We would like to invite you as people who can give us useful feedback, and crucially who will not just tell us what we want to hear. We are looking for honest, objective critique in the spirit of development. Almost like a focus group for the show!
On this occasion the tickets will be free; your feedback will be payment. The show will start at 7.30pm, running for around one hour, and then we will join the audience in a discussion of the show, asking specific questions, and taking feedback. This will give us the opportunity to really zone in on what could be improved. There is a saying that many hands make light work. We believe that many heads make good work!
Aside from the obvious benefits to us and our show that your feedback will provide, we are also keen to nurture the spirit of community within the arts in Cardiff. We hope that the evening will be an enjoyable and stimulating opportunity for discourse, for all who attend.
The venue for the evening will be Little Man Coffee Co., the management team of which is very supportive of this kind of local creative interaction.
The show itself, Behind the Blinds, is a series of darkly comic songs in the vein of Tim Minchin performed by a married couple, gradually revealing more and more about their neighbours and themselves.
The bar will open all evening for wine, beer and free popcorn!
In a nutshell:
What? Behind The Blinds
When? Wed 18th November, 7.30pm
Where? Little Man Coffee Co., Bridge Street, Cardiff
Who? Isabelle Paige and Richard Watson

We very much hope you can make it!
