Well we started our research for July's beach game with a 2 day recce of North Wales' best beach offerings. December and beaches aren't a natural combination for me but I have to say the shorelines were stunning - if a tad cold! We visited 11 in all but are still undecided about which we'll use - stunning and secluded or on the edge of town? You'll have to wait and see...A very inspirational trip though. This exciting project is underway!

Of course you should never take any notice of reviews: if you pay attention when they say you've done well, it's hard not to pay attention when they say you just shouldn't bother any more. So it is not because I care, or because I take any joy that we get a four-star review right next to Southwark's three-star, but purely in the interest of helping the Sherman shift the handful of tickets remaining for the run that I draw your attention to… Continue

Therefore, during our launch year of work, we are offering opportunities for emerging directors to become involved in six of our shows.
Each emerging director will be given an all-in fee of £2,000 (to include any travel and accommodation costs you incur)… Continue
So suddenly we are in the midst of casting three shows! With auditions this week in full swing for The Devil Inside Him, Shelf Life, and A Good Night Out in the Valleys, our upcoming year of productions is starting to feel very real indeed. Very few offers yet, as we in the midst, but I spent the day today with Elen Bowman meeting some fantastic Welsh actors, and felt so exhilarated by the depth and range of talent.

Hello, while researching the play for next March we (myself, director John and intern Hannah) came across a lot of stories of days out - especially to Barry Island and Porthcawl. There was lots of talk of the miners' fortnight (especially at Trecco) and it brought back memories for me of jumping on a train or bus and heading to the coast as a teenager. I remember going to a Radio One roadhsow in Porthcawl and it must have been around 1984. I can't remember much about it, who was on the bill… Continue
