Feel Good Friday

It's here!

The last Feel Good of 2016 and as I write this and reflect over the year we've had (and what a year it's been) I write this with excitement for what the future holds not just for me but for each and every one of you.

We don't know what the future holds and that's exciting because it's our duty to mould it into the future we want for ourselves.

Dreams, ambitions, goals they are all the building blocks of success. Your own success. If it's one thing that I want you… Continue

Feel Good Friday

For my penultimate Feel Good I've chosen to do it a bit didferent and post it later as it's my final one before Christmas and many people will be on thier way home tonight so I thought they could read it this evening.

Well we're here. Christmas time. And what better than to be around loved ones during the festive period. Christmas dinners, presents, mistletoe too but amongst all that I feel there is a greater message. It's not about the amount of presents you have, or how much it all costs… Continue

Feel Good Friday

With Christmas a week away and the new year approaching us we are almost saying goodbye to 2016 and what a bizarre year we've had.

And not long now you'll all be making your New Years resolutions.

And as we go into Christmas and new year there will be people who want to ruin your plans and dampen your dreams but to that I simply say .. keep trying!

I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination - Jimmy… Continue

Cwmbran and Porth based actors and facilitators call-out - Paid work

Fio are on the lookout for Cwmbran and Porth based actors for a project in the new year.  We're still looking to confirm dates, so at the moment we're just keen to see CVs, and as soon as we've got more concrete details we'll be in touch.

We're also keen to hear from workshop facilitators as well (who are DBS checked).

Location is important, and it's important that all suggestions are based in Cwmbran or Porth, but we will allow for a couple of miles either way...

Sophie Warren, on writing for "A Crappy Scratchy Christmas"

Not a clue how to start writing this, I only very recently remembered that I'd started up a shoddy blog site back when I was 17 where I'd review plays I'd seen after school purely so I could put it on my UCAS application purely so I could get in to drama school... and clearly I owe my place at RWCMD entirely to that botch blog site... I have no idea where to find it and thank god none of my friends do either. Anyway that's probably about a third of my word limit used up already on that mediocre… Continue

Feel Good Friday

What a year 2016 has been and it's only 3 weeks of it left!

Christmas will be here tomorrow and we'll be toasting in the new year straight after.

A lot has happened this year and in some cases it has made us anxious for the future.

But who knows what the future will hold.

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” - Alan Kay

You can't just sit around thinking about your dreams and goals, you have to go out there and… Continue

Comfort in the infinite - Light Waves Dark Skies (critical chinwag)

For my second critical chinwag outing I found myself travelling to Cardiff and my first visit to the Chapter Arts Centre in some years. And what a great small arts centre success story it is! It was great to be back.

The play is another micro success story - it started out as a National Theatre Wales 'Waleslab' project, which means that it was initially an exploratory project supported by NTW's creative development policy for new talent and project seeding. From there it has continued to… Continue

Writer Chris Harris talks GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE; his entry for 'A Crappy Scratchy Christmas' - our festive, immersive Scratch Night...

OH, I WISH IT COULD BE CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY a saying that frightens me. In fact, the impulse for GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE (a short play written for this years immersive Christmas scratch night event) were these very lyrics. It intrigues me that if it was indeed Christmas everyday then every shop would be closed, thus we wouldn't be able to be the provisions that we need. Turkeys would be slaughtered by the millions. We would exhaust ourselves of all our Christmas… Continue

Critical Chinwag Review - Light Waves Dark Skies

I was delighted to host the Critical Chinwag for We Made This' production of Light Waves Dark Skies, especially as it was originally supported by WalesLab. The piece has really developed under Matt Ball's direction but is very much a collaborative piece, made through devising.

The play is centred around the idea of light. Light in the extreme (such as the stars), light in the everyday (such a torch or lights in the home) and light in the minutiae (light from screens such as the iPad… Continue

London Casting for first table read of"Uneasy Dreamers."

Uneasy Dreamers, award winning author Wayne Adrian Drew’s new play, is a literary fantasy based on the complex lives, thoughts and beliefs of four real, ground-breaking, but very troubled, artists.  

It’s St. John’s Eve, June 23rd 1920, a time of fireworks and folk customs, when young people jump through the fames of the traditional bonfires to gain both the acceptance of their peers and in the hope of securing future relationships…
