The performance will take you through…

The Container

Chuffed to see we got a 4 star review in The Guardian and lovely comments from Karen Price at the Western Mail but best post show feedback so far is from a colleague at the Welsh Refugee Council who talked about being stuck in a container once for 47 hours on his third attempt trying to get in to the UK, 'you put my experience on stage, you got it right.'

TEAM MEETING (meeting of the greatest team)

It was really great to once again reorganise ourselves back into Team Aberystwyth and was especially good to see Catherine and Devinda and be able to chat and get together.
