I know creatives tend to keep their ideas to themselves for fear of someone else nicking the idea and running with it. And I know you can't copyright ideas, which is scary when you've come up with something really exciting.
But I went to my first NTW TEAM Workout session yesterday, and in discussing other people's projects and ideas I came away with loads of ideas of my own. These weren't nabbed from other people, they just grew out of conversations about other people's work. And I…Continue
On Friday, we ventured up to Aber to film different shots for the promo of the show. The weather was absolutely fabulous - perfect for Patagonia Day...The sort of day that would make Eeyore worry for Esmerelda's well-being on the beach, and the sort of day that would make Sospan a VERY wealthy man indeed...
Thank you to everyone who auditioned for us this week - what…Continue

Minimini ma minimini ma mini ma
There is a moment before every performance which is almost my favourite. The whole cast come together on stage to do vocal warm-ups. For me it is fifteen minutes where any distinction between principals and community chorus fades away. We get our tongues, lips and vocal chords round the sounds, consonants and vowels and a strangely marvellous noise fills the empty auditorium. NTW sets out to create a community, and this is a time where I can…Continue

Our lovely director Matthew Dunster left us after the Previews, his job done, and now ours really starts.
The mood in the wings has lightened as the lines, moves, reactions and exchanges become embedded. I know what is coming up and am ready. In the first Preview I hovered anxiously, pages too early. Now I wait discretely, tucked away but alert and ready. The oiled machine, company and stage management, technical crew, actors and singers move smoothly into action. There…Continue

What a brilliant production! Congratulations to NTW and Patrick Jones for such an entertaining play. Patrick has tapped into so many issues arising out of the subject matter of Dementia. He definitely got the inner voice of all those affected. Though Welsh based this play has definitely got a universal appeal. While the play is truly entertaining I feel Augusto Boal would have been proud of Patrick subtly raising potential political issues i.e. the empathy / no empathy and cutbacks to…Continue
