Beyond wake and sleep lies a place tangled with sweet reveries and twisted nightmares. A place where we find ourselves lost, victims of our vivid imaginations and memories. Reality is altered and darkness falls. Lost in reverie will you ever wake up? Only one man has the answer. Tom Watson.

Get ready for an experience that will stretch you to your limits. Listen, play, explore and RUN... Run like your soul depended on it.

Following on from the sell out success of yello brick's previous production Everwake, Reverie is a new type of entertainment and narrative. Mixing roaming theatre, street gaming and online storytelling to create a rich world of memories and vivid experiences.

The event will take place in Cardiff Bay and requires participants to move between several locations. Participants are advised to book tickets in advance in order to interact with all parts of the story. 

Dates - 25th May, 27th May - 1st June.

Reverie is a yello brick production and a collaboration with Gerald Tyler and thinkARK and would not have been possible without the support of The Arts Council of Wales, Chapter Arts Centre, Hoffi, National Theatre Wales and Wales Millennium Centre.

We thought we would introduce our lovely cast to you in what we are imaginatively calling 'Meet the Cast'. First up is Natalie Paisey.

Natalie is delighted to be involved in Reverie, having performed in the previous gaming experience, Everwake. She recently appeared on the long-running BBC/S4C series Pobol Y Cwm as 'Sian Evans'.  She has worked with Josie D'arby in The Newport Monologues.  Other theatre credits includeLove At First Light for award-winning Shock n Awe Performance Company, Madog for Cwmni Mega, The Soul Exchange for National Theatre Wales, Baby for Dumbwise Theatre. Screen credits include 'Mrs Taylor' The Sarah Jane Adventures, BBC, 'Denise' in Welsh BAFTA-nominated short film Funday, 'Mam' in Be A Man for BBC/It's My Shout, as well as numerous independent short films.  

Natalie is also a writer of dark comedy, and recently visited a psychic who told her that she should carry on writing. All good there then. Her first short film 'Woof' will be produced this summer. It's about dogging. And she had her idea way before channel four. For the record.

We are looking for some volunteers for certain roles for the forthcoming multi platform production of Reverie which is taking place in May and is being produced by yello brick and directed by Gerald Tyler.

We are looking for people to fill one of the following three roles:

- Stewards - This role will based at one of the venues and consist of guiding participants into the space.

- Shadows - This role will be an active one and will be a mix between an acting role and guiding participants between venues. (This role will be workshopped)

- Facilitators - This role will require people to facilitate a mini game in character within the production. (This role will be workshopped)

Everyone who helps out will get a free ticket for the production and access to advanced content.

If you are interested in any of the above roles, please get in touch as we would love to hear from you.

Drop me an email at
