Its coming up to Christmas and we are all getting busier,
So lets make it more by making Cardiff more prettier.
This improv comedy jam can happen when you like,
We'll suit the majority and it'll be as fun as riding a bike.
If you don't like bikes and rather silliness and spontaneity,
Our jam will just be tasty and impulsively like a deity.
When would you come to this show and event?
What date suits you? As you're the important cement.
Is the city…

I had quite a creative extravaganza yesterday! It was one of the more fruitful Saturday's of mine, I must admit. It's up there with the walk up Snowdon over a year ago... But that's beside the point. The two are nay related and the latter is irrelevant... On to the point.
My morning began scrolling (some say Trolling) the Online World looking for creative outlets and opportunities until I gave up all pursuits of an artistic nature and ended up playing the same level of…Continue

Writing my current play I have had to revisit my past as I am writing something of what 'I know' (first rule of writing). Its certainly revealed things I had long forgotten and also churned up some buried emotions from things I have witnessed in my youth.
I had forgotten the villagers pride, I'd forgotten their embarrassment, I'm forgotten how Thatcher was a dirty word. I'd forgotten that this wasn't just an 80's issue...that since the mines opened there has always been fear,…Continue

It's been an interesting couple of days exploring the possibilities of the project with Ollie and Joanna. We started yesterday (in our lovely rehearsal space at Barry Memo) improvising and discussing characters and their stories. We then hopped on the no 95 to Ty Verlon industrial estate to meet Baz and Rhys who gave us a tour of their very own bus which is used to run arts projects with young people in Barry and Cadoxton. Then in the afternoon we met Marco and his dog Peroni who told us…Continue
