"I’m really interested to see how the play sits in the current world" Matthew Bulgo - Constellation Street

Please tell us about the play, and what it is about

Constellation Street takes place over the course of one night in Cardiff, between midnight and dawn. It follows the story of four characters - a pub landlady, a taxi driver, a school teacher and a young girl - who are all stuck in their own personal purgatories. Their past actions are weighing on them heavily and they’re desperate to find a way of moving forward. This one particular…

TEAM Model. It works. It’s sick.

Successful in engaging people who don’t ordinarily connect with theatre in its traditional model, people who don’t necessarily think that theatre is for them.

Make it a bigger part of what NTW does.

I’d like NTW to better acknowledge other languages that exist in Wales, beyond…

Y Model TEAM. Mae'n gweithio. Mae'n anhygoel.

Mae'n llwyddo wrth ennyn diddordeb pobl nad ydynt fel arfer yn cysylltu â'r theatr ar ei ffurf draddodiadol, pobl nad ydynt o reidrwydd yn tybio bod y theatr ar eu cyfer nhw.
