Life in a Small-Scale Theatre Company...

We held auditions yesterday for our DT100 project, Return Journey.

All of our applicants contacted us as a result of a call that we placed on the National Theatre Wales website and I can safely say that there are a very talented bunch of actors on this site. Auditioning is the hardest thing that we have to do. We understand people's commitment and the sacrifice that they make in coming to see us and we appreciate all of that. Thank you everyone who came, it was great to meet you and…

The Green Green Grass Of Home.

I was in Cardiff on Monday to meet the lovely WalesLab team. Cardiff has changed so much from how I remember it as a child, and not just physically. There is a real buzz about the city now and is full of creative people and creative thinking. It felt like coming home, except it's a home that I never knew I had.

So much of my practice is tied up in 'home' - in that sense of belonging, or not belonging. Of a dislocation between the person and the place.

There is…

The Importance of working in welsh 'Priodferch Utah'

Its really important for me as a theatre maker and writer to work in welsh, but I'm only 2nd language...so I had my play adapted and translated. Its been an enlightening process and has transferred easily into welsh, its brings so much to the performance and the plays themes. It makes me feel closer to my roots. We should endeavor to work bilingually and also have more surtitles in the welsh language.

Priodferch Utah opens tomorrow night @ Chapter till Sat, a welsh adaptation of my…

The Drowned Girl

Hello All,


Just wanted to share a new venture that I'm loving being a part of. Kelly Jones' one woman show 'The Drowning Girl'.

Help us re-imagine online collaboration!

Last year we began a research project into online collaboration through our project The Studio, which is funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. We started by working with four small focus groups, who used tools like the NTW community, Skype, Facebook and email to share ideas, thoughts and feedback as they began to make new work together. For some, that collaboration resulted in a project that…

Act III: Reflections of a 3rd Age Critic

Guy O’Donnell asked Leslie Herman Jones to reflect on her experience as a 3rd Age Critic, considering what it has meant to her and what she feels she’s contributed.

Reflecting is an interesting process. While I was at it for this, I found myself also reflecting on the act of reflection itself, which is defined as ‘thinking usefully towards a deeper understanding of life and to the fullness of wisdom’ (Ratnaguna, The Art of…
