Event Description

We are delighted to be working with Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to present All That I Am, a new play by Daf James, directed by Adele Thomas and assisted by our Artistic Director Rachel O'Riordan as Dramaturg. This will be presented as part of the Richard Burton Company's weeklong celebration of new writing.

Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama also continue their collaboration with The Royal Court Theatre and Paines Plough presenting three new plays by some of the UK’s exciting new writing talent; Elinor Cook, Ali Taylor and Joe Ward Munrow.

All That I Am

“We all could have said a million things. But it wouldn't have made a difference because he said nothing.“

Vix needs absolution, Tugs needs a drink, and Titch still needs to be told.

After their friend takes his own life, a group of disparate young people gathers together to write his eulogy; but when the night unravels, so too do their perceptions of him, and each other. As they dispute their right to grieve they begin to wonder who they all are now that he has gone; yet through the violent throws of competitive grief, they share a moment in time, which changes them forever.

Comic, dark and devastating, All That I Am is an elegy to what is left when language fails you.

NEW: 2016 returns for a third exciting year with another four world premieres at home in Cardiff before transferring once again to London’s Gate Theatre, a venue known to springboard the most exceptional new talent.

NEW: 2016 will be presented as part of A Nation’s Theatre, a festival shining a light on exciting and diverse theatre being made outside London, across the UK.
