Dear NTW Community,
Act One Drama Society is putting on a modern version of Shakespeare's King Lear. It starts next week (Tuesday) and is running until Sat 4th Feb, in the YMCA theatre, just off the Walk, in Roath. Act One is a primarily student based acting company, but is aiming to widen its appeal this year. Everyone is welcome. More information, including ticket purchase information on the King Lear event page (see my profile on NTW).
