Well, we have arrived at the Edinburgh Fringe and what a long journey it’s been…and I’m not just talking about the 12 hour van-journey that Alan and Martin did on Wednesday.

We first started developing THE FUTURE FOR BEGINNERS a good few years ago and the Wales Millennium Centre has been with us every step of the way.

Sensible Walking Shoes

A Multitude of Snacks

Swiss Army Knife


Camping Stove

Sleeping Bag

Clytemnestra - Up and Running!


Well, it was 6 weeks ago that we embarked on rehearsals for Sherman Cymru's production of Clytemnestra, adapted by former National Poet of Wales, Gwyneth Lewis.

We Need YOU


I'm curating a wee event for Undeb Theatre's Cardiff Identity Festival this Sunday and we need your help in creating 4 bespoke pieces of theatre about Cardiff and it's identity...

What does Cardiff mean to you? If you had to sum up Cardiff in a word, phrase, object, photograph, street, pub, shop, memory...whatever...what would it be?

Please comment on this blog with your 'slice of Cardiff''...and then why not come along to the Cardiff Arts…
