The Barry Bus Project


The Barry Bus Project

As part of WalesLab I'm developing my idea for a show which will take place on a bus that journeys through Barry. It's inspired by my many bus journeys from the chemical works to the pleasure beach and the people I've met along the way.

Hi Bridget, Good to see more news about this, and I recognise the mystery bather in the photo - and she doesn't even look cold!! Best to you, Ailsa x

A quickie update on the Barry Bus project. The last couple of months we've been rehearsing every saturday on a bus and we made a show, Day to Go. Our first outing was last Sat, then we had a second go yesterday which went really well. We've had amazing support for the show from people in Barry, they've lent us a bus and a hearse, given us the keys to historic monuments and opened roads normally closed and they've come along to see the work in progress. Someone from the audience yesterday described the show as a 'love letter to Barry' and that's how i like to think of it. Hoping to continue it's development next year. Here's some pics.

Cheers Dean, I didn't know about Jon Pertwee's double decker and I only recently stumbled on Ed Berman's Fun Bus on I'm now back on the barry bus - after several frantic months of thesis write up - and in a few weeks we have our first showing of Day to Go will keep you posted.

In the 1930's, Jon Pertwee (Dr Who, Wurzel Gummidge, Navy Lark etc) and others in his theatre group converted a double decker bus, with the upstairs full of various props. Each day they would select props, write a play in the morning based on the props selected and perform to an audience on the bottom deck in the evening.

Good to see outside the box thinkers still exist.

Lovely to see the work you were doing this morning. Tomorrow, if I forget, I want to mention binaural sound and location triggers!
