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:

Casting Call: A Recipe for Sloe Gin

The first production of our Fifth Season is the newly written play A Recipe for Sloe Gin by Allan Neve. We’re looking for two performers to fit the below descriptions for an exciting site-specific, profit-share production that’ll be performed 24th-28th July in Cardiff.

The auditions will be held on 28th May from 7-9pm with callbacks potentially on the 1st June 5-7pm. Please email to apply to audition with your CV andheadshot. Rehearsals will begin in June with a flexible schedule, and then will likely be full-time for the full week preceding the performance week that you’d need to be available for. The deadline for applications for auditions is 6pm Friday 25th May and you’ll be notified about your time slot before the auditions on the Monday.

A Recipe for Sloe Gin: Synopsis

Lucy returns to her childhood home to care for her father Charlie, but the family farm has been replaced by a sea-view hotel and a slew of guests trampling over her fondest memories. Charlie, craving the simplicity of his younger years, slowly accepts the challenges life casts his way.

Character Biographies:

Lucy (mid-twenties) - University graduate, returning home from a job in London to care for her ill father only to begin drowning in her own isolation.

Charlie (mid-forties) - Retired Newlyn fisherman, widower and recovering alcoholic, weighed down with the struggles of single parenthood.

Hi everyone,

A really great breakdown to share with you; we're putting a company together for As Long As The Heart Beats. They'll work with Ben Tinniswood and Marcus Romer to create an intimate journey for audiences, inspired by amazing stories of the NHS, that have been shared with us by people all over Wales and beyond.

So if this is your kind of thing; if you have experience working closely with audiences and improvising, get in touch. We are particularly interested in meeting performers of Philippine and South Asian heritage, to reflect the work-force of the NHS in South Wales.

Please share far and wide!

Thanks! x

Fucktons of Fairies: New Action Theatre Group

South Wales theatre company Fucktons of Faries are back, and we're embarking on an exciting new project. 

We're starting a theatre laboratory group, and we are inviting artists to come and join us. The group's explorations will be rooted in Action Theatre, the methodology developed by performance artist Ruth Zaporah. Action Theatre is a psycho-physical approach, that trains the body and mind to become more aware and present. Through structured improvisations, the group will train as an ensemble, together building performance skills, sharing creative ideas and reflections.

Sessions will run every Thursday, from 7:30pm - 9:30pm, at WMC.

If you'd like to join us, and be a part of this collective exploration, please write to, outlining your interest in the project and your relevant eperience. We look forward to hearing from you!

Fucktons of Fairies

Hi everyone... 

I am an MA student at Chester University. I am currently creating a project based on Welsh myths and legends. The project will look at storytelling. 

I am looking for at least two actors who are around the North Wales area preferably Wrexham. This is a good experience, however, I do not have a budget. 

If you are interested please contact me.
