I just wanted to add that this week once again has opened up new and interesting discussion and stimulted new ideas and actions. This is an incredible experience, the show/experiment is simple in format and the interaction unfolds beautifully under the careful supervision or rampant Mr Ralph. I have felt particularly moved by the last week of interaction and I recommend that you give this a go, and even return if you feel the urge. I also went to see True Stories Told Live at Craft In the Bay and was touched by the simplistic yet perfect interaction that unfolded. Anymore of this communication business and I am in danger of loosing my frown!

The second week of Phil's One Eyed Man experiments has passed by eventfully and the nights at The Plan coffee house in Cardiff have been incredibly charged, moving and funny. The audience numbers have been small but this has created an intimacy and I can only say that you had to be there to experience the open and frank discussions that have stimulated and connected those who attended. There are four more weeks, so I urge anyone interested to attend one of the remaining dates at the Civic Centre in Swansea, The Old Library in Cardiff and the Junction Cafe in Black Pill. Full details are available through the link here or via the Taliesin and Sherman Theatre. It is a unique experience, unpredictable and unplanned but if the following evenings are anything like the last three in Cardiff there is something special to behold in this simple but enthralling project.
