Lucid exists to inspire and produce theatre that is clear-sighted, revelatory and original. Currently, its focus is in two main areas:

  • to act as a catalyst and resource for artist development
  • to be a producer of innovative and distinctive theatre projects

Hi Carmen, yes, there is something happening, but it is only open to the people who have applied to be involved. Both groups - the Sherman Cymru and Chapter groups - are now fully subscribed. Perhaps you didn't quite understand what was happening, but, if it appeals, Lucid intends to offer more opportunities later.  

Best wishes,
