Wales Lab - The Maiden's Voyage

About our Wales Lab project

Likely Story were inspired by a grainy black and white photograph from the 1900s of a group of women standing next to a hauled out pilot gig (a sea going rowing boat), found on the wall of the Anchor Inn, Seatown, Dorset.   A caption described them as “rude and coarse” fisherwomen who spent one summer fishing from the gig by day and sleeping under it on the beach by night.  It’s an image, and the seed of a story that has ignited the…

Tankers, Tugs and Banana Boats

Beer, Dylan Thomas, The Queen's Hotel - the show I have been working toward all my life...Tankers, as it is affectionately known, has proved to be very successful; loads of nice comments, but most importantly - we wanted more.

Young Critic Review: Free Folk (Forest Forge)

October 17th 2013 I attended the opening night first showing of the Forest Forge production: Free Folk, written by Gary Owen and directed by Kirstie Davis, at The Sherman Theatre.

Free folk follows five strangers as their paths cross one stormy night and they become trapped not only physically but mentally as we the audience witness relatable situations with the internal struggles and personal journeys of each character. We are invited into the mind sets of this vast range…

Sing to him

I sang this song to Superted around Newport. I performed this also at Comedyport (The annual commedy festival in Newport), where the people of Newport joined the call.

You’ve got soft hands with white hair,

You needed the hospital so I took you there.

You wear yellow trousers, matching brace and tie,

Your eyes are made of plastic and your…

Getting Lost

A few months ago I created a one-to-one performance in which the single audience member became a part of the action within the story I shared. Each enters the room where I am waking up after an operation; they pull down my bed cover, open Superteds trousers to reveal my body and the scars that map my journey through the NHS. Each individual is involved in this this re-enactment of the past as I attempt to stitch up the wound of lost memory and object, they hold my hand and I squeeze. At the…

I’ve just got back from the festival at BAC, and I think I’ve got the London Bug, that’s not just the cold that I have although I think that has something to do with using the underground. Even though I’m not keen on wearing it on a t-shirt or umbrella I must say, I love/heart London. If I am asked to recall a time from my childhood I go back to the moment where I am sitting up in a bed in Great Ormond Street Hospital. I’m looking around for a nurse, my dad and Superted. The nurse comes…

I <3 Korea

I’m now just about recovered from the jet lag after returning from an amazing two weeks away in Asia, and through the blur have been reflecting on what it was I experienced.

It started with a trip with the British Council to speak at PAMS (Performing Arts Market Seoul). If you’ve not been to an arts market before, imagine loads of companies, big and small, who have…
