… it turns out Lyn Gardner's recommendations are really worth something. My last day in Edinburgh was spent participating in Alma Mater and viewing I Hope My Heart Goes First. What a wonderful way to end my time at the Fringe.
Alma Mater ★★★ is a one-person journey into a child's imagination, powered by an iPad. Looking at the video on the tablet as you would the…Continue

If it is true that 'nothing succeeds like excess', then Brent and I have had a very successful few days indeed. Seeing up to six shows a day as well as a far from quantifiable load of street theatre, we've absolutely binged on the stuff... and I'm starting to feel a little full. While I'm still enjoying myself to the core, it must be said that it's starting to take a lot to impress me. Beware, Cardiff. I'm going to be a much less forgiving critic when I return.…

Any day that begins with a special, personalised performance of a delightful children's tale is already set to be spectacular. And this is what we had on Monday as we popped along to The Incredible Book Eating Boy ★★★★. Although billed as kid's theatre, this…Continue

I should tell you straight away: I'm not a fan of musicals. However, there is something very alluring about Spring Awakening - something that moves far, far away from jazz hands, chihuahuas and black canes. Telling the tale of a group of adolescences struggling to gain knowledge of their sexualities and their worlds, the piece is a dark and appealing fable about growing up and knowledge.

Thanks V much Amelia! Yes, I thought you were - I remember you did a great preview for us back in 2011. All best wishes Jane X
Hi Amelia, Are you around on May 19 and interested in writing a review for us? Thank you Jane
My name is Jem Treays ( I've got a profile on the ntw website), Adam Somerset suggested I contact you as I am trying to get someone to review Run Raggeds new dance theatre show Out of the Box (www.runraggedproductions.co.uk). I know it's a little late in the day as we have only two shows left: one tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 6pm at Blackwood and one on Saturday at 2pm in the Muni at Pontypridd. We are still very keen to get a critical review (for the theatre in Wales website perhaps?). We think the show is interesting layered and a little bit different to the usual fare but would love to get your view. If you were interested we could pay your travel, buy you a drink and obviously a comp ticket. I hope that it will be of interest to you but if your busy no worries. All the best. Cheers. Jem

How are you? I was wondering if you could give me a little info on whats involved in being in a NTW Team? I'm wanting to get a bit more involved.
Hope your life is full of sunshine and sparkles.
We have a few places left. What is your phone number and email address? Do you have any questions about the course?
Be great to have you on board,
Mess Up The Mess
Thank you for the compliment about my writing. I'm looking for anything really, its all experience and learning. A preview would be fantastic if there was an opportunity for one.
Great to hear from you,
Great - no problem! I'll be ready with all the information you need about the show!
