Yesterday I was lucky enough to get a look behind the scenes of new show The Utah Bride!
I got a sneak peek of rehearsals which was exciting. I saw the lovely Utah Bride team at work, including the director Louise Osborn, then Sharon Morgan and Sara Lloyd-Gregory performed a gripping part of the play for me.
You can take a look at my pics from rehearsals below...
The show tours Wales in November, so watch this space for more…Continue

A few months ago we launched a new weekly National Theatre Wales e-newsletter. The idea was created by the staff team, then I sketched it out with some felt tip pens and the lovely people at Hoffi put together our template.
I've enjoyed delving into all our news and updates and putting them together to share with you each fortnight, so I really hope anyone who's been receiving the mailing has found it useful!
Thanks to everyone…Continue

I’m midway through my residency at Cove Park working on ‘Lost, Found, Stolen,’ and things are slowly but surely taking shape. Having a week here with National Theatre Scotland artists has been an absolute gift. It is so nice to meet with new people and share ideas in a beautiful (but very cold) landscape. When I arrived I had bits of songs and bits of texts and a few vague ideas of where the piece may go. The last few days I have tried to fit these fragments together and really get a…Continue

L.O.V.E (Volcano theatre)
Sherman Cymru (30.10.12)

None of the above could be applied to L.O.V.E, the passionate production recreated by Volcano for the company’s 25th anniversary, based on the bard’s collection of classical poetry.
A winner of the 1993 Time Out…Continue

One of the greatest achievements of the ruling class could be said to be their ability to make the working class ashamed of itself. MTV’s shameful ‘The Valley’s’ has young people representing the worst stereotypes of the working class that our so called ‘betters’ can throw at us. Violent. Alcoholic or border line. Drug taking. Fake tanning. and on and on and on.
Another perpetrator is Channel 4’s Shameless and I leave readers of this message to comment further on that dribble…Continue
