PLAYTIME - TAITH: Reflections (Sherman Theatre & Theatr Iolo)


TAITH: Reflections

Sherman Theatre, 27th October 2016


Yesterday at the Sherman Theatre, it was playtime.


Writers, directors and a company of actors came together to present new ten-minute plays to young people aged 10-12. Nervous laughter and anticipation quickly turned into belly laughs as accents, roars, animals…

TAITH: Playtime. Part Two

It's the afternoon. The plays have come togethor in the studio.

But in the mainhouse. A different kind of mischief is happening - as 25 or so children have gathered for a workshop with facilitator Tamar Williams.

They're looking at the art of storytelling and the link of storytelling to theatre. At 4pm, they'll get to see the pieces.

The playing continues. 4pm, Sherman Theatre.
