Well done to the IWIW cast for two great days of rehearsals getting the show ready for London. The Purcell rooms are a lot smaller so we've had to shrink the show to fit the space but it worked better than expected and it is going to be fab. Looking forward to next week!

Great show again last night and a well deserved 4 star review in the Guardian for our fabulous performers. This week has gone so quickly, can't believe we only have 3 performances left in Cardiff, so glad we have London to look forward to, please spread the word!

Hi, does anyone know if there is a play text/ book of monologues available to buy to accompany IWIW? Thanks. B

Congratulations to the cast and tech crew for two great preview performances, good at any time but given the circumstances truly amazing. We are all missing Mandy enormously and hoping she will be back where she belongs soon. Looking forward to a successful week next week!

Whilst we're waiting for Mandy to rejoin the cast we have re-worked the performance to fit a cast of 5, and not 6.... A truly herculean effort from the whole company… It's at times like this we all realise what an amazing company John has assembled. Although we miss Mandy hugely, we've all pulled together as (in true Mandy Disability Diva stye) THE SHOW MUST GO ON.... Mandy’s a sucker for the old big show numbers and is what's known 'in the biz' as a trooper - she was all but re-casting some of her roles when we were together in A&E....

So we have opened, and to a full house on Friday - and all I can do is marvel at the fantastic people i have the privilege of working amongst....

So, in the spirit of Olympic trial and glory, our wonderful Mandy Colleran took a fall yesterday and we cancelled tonight's preview while she makes what we hope will be a swift recovery. Big big love to her from everyone. We will go ahead with tomorrow's show (and social) with a Mandy-shaped hole but with everyone else in magnificent form... and we very much hope she'll be back with us soon.

We may have missed the sunshine but sitting in a dark room for the best part of 12 hours has been fantastic! We had a succesful first day of tech; helped along of course with the compulsory biscuits, cake and jelly babies! The show is looking stunning, congratulations to a hugely talented crew, really looking forward to the first dress rehearsal x

Hey guys,

Here is the BSL video which was filmed during rehearsals at the NDC.

Hope you all enjoy.
