The Hotel de Marl - a 12 minute play set in Grangetown.

For some time now I have wanted to explore the story of the "Hotel de Marl" in Grangetown as the subject matter for a piece of theatre. Hundreds of working class men defied the government of the day, to get round the 1881 Sunday Closing Act which prohibited pubs from opening and banned the sale of alcohol on a Sunday. Instead, the men of Grangetown created illicit, open-air drinking clubs on The Marl, organised as invitation only "gentlemen's clubs", which were not restricted by the…

Comfort food on a plate


A musical based on a film based on a book, it’s no wonder it gets lost in translation. Add a little Cole Porter to fit into the words and you have a scenario with little adventure but plenty of comfort zones to work on. It is a musical that has essentially nothing too complicated to digest and a predictable and happy ending.

The plot largely involves Tracy Lord (Sophie Bould) and her involvement with her fiancé George Kittredge (Keiron Crook),…

WalesLab - updates

Yesterday I spent the whole day interviewing people for the next round of WalesLab - at some point I was asked about how the current projects were going  so I thought I'd take this opportunity to say what's been going on.

In January we embarked on a new development for WalesLab, where a targeted call was made to encourage activity in a particular area: Butetown. This is part of a new way of working across the company where we're exploring the ideas of residency in our work;  with…

We have good production values and an experienced…

My last 'Assembly' as Creative Associate

Two years ago I embarked on a journey from London to be interviewed for the role of Creative Associate at NTW. I returned to the big smoke thinking that I had failed miserably as my interview went quite bad.  The 'Wales' section in my future autobiography was to remain a figment of my imagination.  However surprisingly I was given a reprieve, which I grabbed with both hands.  I arrived at the second interview prepped and ready to give an account of myself which was a proper reflection of me.…

The Opportunity of Efficiency

I'll be joining John McGrath in Tokyo at the end of the month so I thought I’d share some of the process that is going on at the moment

As the writer of the play, it's been weird not being in the room for the start of rehearsals (I would normally be there for the first week, leave them alone for a bit and then rejoin later on – a bit more awkward when the play is in Tokyo).

But, of course, I’ve been in touch with John since he arrived to answer general and specific…
