Theatre Playgroup!

A group for the 'Theatre Playgroup' project.

This is (initially) a 6 week project where Actors, Directors, Writers and .. well anyone else who is interested can work together. Reading, work-shopping and exploring a published script and then going on to create new exciting work which we share at the end of the 6 weeks!

Hello Theatre Playgroup friends - if anyone is free on the coming Monday evening (15th June) at 8pm for half an hour, we are desperate to get an audience together - particularly an audience who might email Caerphilly Arts/ Blackwood Miners management and possibly say what interesting work we're doing……Here's the spiel :   'Our Community Theatre group is always under threat of closure, because of budget cuts in the arts and education. We create our own original theatre, offering a unique experience to our participants and audience. A good audience turn out for this show would help us to stay alive for another project!.  'Three Sisters, Two Artists and a Question' is a thirty minute performance, and £3 ticket - please come along and support local art in the community. Blackwood Miners Institute, Blackwood High Street, 8pm, Monday 15th June"

An Englishman, an IrishMan and an American are held hostage in a cell in the Middle East. Why they are there is their own guess, why they were in the country in the first place is their own guess.
This roller coaster of a play takes you through their highs and lows as they relive great sporting events, re-visit their homes and even take a ride in a flying car!

It would be great to meet you if you're able to come along!

This Thursday, Friday and Saturday

16th, 17th and 18th April at 8pm

Lefel 1, St Davids Hall
Tickets £10
(Special offer for Members of the NTW community!)

Hi All,
Hope you're all well!

Would be great if you could come along. It's a really great way to get a sense of TEAM in a relaxed, social environment, chat to other TEAM members and see what they get up to and what opportunities are on offer.

if you'd like to come email me at

look forward to seeing you there!

As a follow up to my last post, the 'wetransfer' didn't work! Just trying to find a quick and easy way of sharing for those without dropbox! Any ideas gratefully received!

Comment by James Robert Auheb on September 5, 2014 at 2:27

Hey folks,

 Following the discussion last night I've sent out the video files via 'wetransfer' - you should receive and email shortly. I've also shared the file to everyone via dropbox. 2 Ways to make sure you all get it!

Hope you found last nights session interesting / useful!
