Fio are very excited to bring the rehearsals for Death and The Maiden to the busy centre of Cardiff! 

On Saturday 21st October from 11:00 to 15:00 join us @ Capitol Shopping Centre and get a sneek peek into our rehearsal process!

We are opening the doors and inviting the public to come and meet our wonderful cast and enjoy some of the rehearsal process as much as we are. 

Ariel Dorfman's spectacular thriller Death and The Maiden tells the story of Paulina Salas, a torture victim of a brutal millitary dictatorship. Paulina is full of fear, gripped by a secret terror that she only shares with her husband, Gerado. One night, a kindly stranger, Dr. Miranda, arrives at their door late at night unannounced, forcing Paulina to confront her deepest fears face-to-face. 

See you there!

We are looking for two female actors between the ages of 18 and 35 to feature in the pre-apocalypse play ‘Bread’.


‘Bread’ is the story of two women on the brink of the apocalypse. Inside a boarded up house, they wait for the world to end. There’s not much to do, and not a lot has happened for a few years. But there’s still secrets. Together they are negotiating their last day on earth. Still discovering new things about each other, reminiscing about the old world, and doing what any sane person would do when faced with the end of all life on earth: Getting drunk.


Clock Tower is proud to be producing ‘Bread’, a brand new one act play from Cardiff-based writer James Sarson, directed by Miriam Dorfner.


Auditions will be on Thursday 28th September at The Gate Arts Centre from 6-9pm.


If you'd like an audition slot please email: with an Acting CV and a headshot. We are always looking to give opportunities to people wishing to work in the industry so if a CV is not available, please attach a recent picture of yourself and your details.


The deadline for applications is the 23rd September. We will be in touch by Sunday 24th September to inform you of your audition time.


For the audition you'll need to prepare a modern monologue of no more than 5 minutes.


The play will be a profit share with a minimum of one rehearsal per week, with potential additional rehearsals if needed. Performance dates are the 9/10/11th November in Cardiff.

I have just taken over as Programme Manager for Redhouse Cymru, based in the heart of Merthyr Tydfil. I am currently programming for 2018, and would love to hear from independent artists and companies looking to put on a new show, or existing shows looking to tour.

We also have rehearsal space for hire by shows performing both at Redhouse Cymru and elsewhere.

Please feel free to check out our website,

Fio are calling spoken word artists, musicians, singers, dancers, actors, & anyone who would consider what they do a performance art. We are especially interested in Black and Minority Ethnic Performance Artists. We are also looking for individuals willing to speak about their experience of race within Wales.

Throughout the month of October, Fio will be engaging in a series of Speakeasy’s alongside their tour of The Mountaintop by Katori Hall. These will be taking place in:

*Powys Dance - 3rd October

*Blackwood Miners Institute - 10th - 13th October
*Newport Riverfront 18th - 19th October

*Ffwrnes Llanelli - 26th - 27th October

We are looking for passionate artists who are interested in race within Wales and want to be part of taking these conversations to the places that really need them. The evening will be a mix of educating and facilitating discussion, and a night of engaging political art.

*Do you care about racial inequality in Wales?
*Do you have something to say?

Email with:

*An introduction to who you are, what you do, and where you are based
*A link to your work (If possible)
*Why you’d like to be involved in this project.
