We are presenting the Cardiff premiere of Philip Ridley's beautiful play VINCENT RIVER in the next few weeks, and are in the process of Crowdfunding in order to make this important play happen in Wales.

We still have a way to go, so would really appreciate any sized donations towards our final target. We understand that not everybody is in the position to donate, so if you are interested in project, and fancy helping out an Emerging Theatre company in staging the best possible production of this play, we would equally appreciate just a share of the Crowdfunder link on social media platforms, to continue to spread the word in the last fortnight of Crowdfunding.

We hope you can help us out. Diolch yn fawr, Luke and the Team.

We are looking for more actors to get involved with our Writer's Scratch Night. A workshop style event working with writers who want to practically develop their scripts with actors.
The event takes place next week at Art Central Gallery in Barry, South Wales and is free to attend and get involved. The event is also a perfect opportunity to meet other actors and artists.
Get in touch today for more information or to book your place.

Audition Call Out - Shed Man by Kevin Jones

Clock Tower Theatre Company is delighted to announce our new casting call out for the second production of our Fifth Season; Shed Man by Kevin Jones.

Brian has a job, a wife, two children, and a mother. One sunny bank holiday he decides to build a shed. Because how else can he deal with the overwhelming feeling that his life belongs to everyone but him?

Kevin Jones’s funny and down-to-earth play explores how we might cope with pressure, anxiety and guilt in a world that just wants us to “man-up”.

The production will be performed in Sherman Theatre’s Studio space as part of their ‘Get It While It’s Hot’ from November 13-17th 2018. The production will operate on a profit share basis and be rehearsed predominantly on Thursdays and Sundays from September.

Below are the details of the auditions, please email to let us know the role you’ll be auditioning for and your performance CV. Audition submissions will close on 20th August at 5pm. Please email

Audition Details:

Initial Auditions - Thursday the 23rd of August 5pm-9pm

Recalls – Sunday the 26th of August (TIME TBC)

Sony Room, Wales Millennium Centre.

Please wait on Awen Bar (second floor of the WMC, behind the big letters) to be called into your audition


BRIAN (40+)

Brian is an office worker and a family man, living in a Cardiff suburb with his wife Emma and two kids. In an effort to escape the pressures of his life one scorching bank holiday he attempts to build himself one corner of piece in his back garden in the form of a shed. He appears mild-mannered and awkward. The fragility of his state of mind becomes clearer as the play progresses.

EMMA (40+)

Brian’s wife. Strong, energetic and full of life. Mother to Sam and Martha. She's restless, constantly on the move. She’s outspoken and unafraid to challenge Brian.

MR TATUM (30+)

Brian’s boss. Tall and wears a suit. He initially appears friendly and a little foolish. This is slowly revealed to be a disguise.
 He is in fact, vain and egotistical. There is something sadistic and primitive about his need to control Brian.

PAT (60+)

Brian’s mother. A grieving widow. She's prone to self-pity, but also has a bitter streak borne from personal pain. Suitable for an actress with a bit of comic flair.

This event will be a workshop style event where the writers present their work to actors, then workshop it with them as part of a development process.

 The event is free - and it's aims are to look at supporting and developing the work of those who are young in the industry through practical ways. The Event is

June's SCAB was great and if you missed it you truly missed out. A wonderful and generous night of brilliant, varied performance based work with a lovely, constructive audience. 

July's SCAB will take place at The Moon Cardiff on Womanby Street in Cardiff on July 31st. We'll be there from 7 with the first act kicking off at 8. The venue is fully accessible and completely brilliant. 

A night of new live art and performance. Whether this is your first time trying an idea, one in development or you've just come along to gawk at the amazing displays of talent this is a night for you.

A brilliant and insightful audience prepared to give you support and constructive criticism on how to develop your work and take it further. Invaluable whether you're a new artist or have years of experience. 

Performances between 10-20 minutes in length. The new, the strange, the experimental, the weird and different. Move, sing, make noises, say words if it counts as performance or live art we want it. Try out some choreography, a devised piece or maybe just ramble in to a microphone. Basically if you've got live work and you're you're struggling to find a platform to test it on we're for you! 

So if you want to pick at your SCAB and show us what you've got send us an email with an artist bio, a bit about the piece you'll be bringing and its expected length. Send emails to:
