Director needed for collaboration (Arts Council of Wales application)

Hello thanks for clicking.

Recently I was lucky enough to perform a preview of my one man play 'Switzerland' at Volcano Theatre in Swansea where I work as a Welsh Language Development Officer. The preview was directed by the Artistic Director of Volcano , Paul Davies and I'm really pleased how it turned out. The preview included me climbing ladders like they were mountains, hanging off lighting rigs, and soaking a lucky audience member by shaking my wet hair at them ;) So it was a…

I am professionally trained (Royal Welsh college, Regents…
