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. We all know there are a lot of good Welsh actors, but to see so many one after the next in the intimacy of the rehearsal room is a great privelege. Tomorrow we will be working more with the first drafts of Alan Harris's script for Good Night Out, but today it was all about John Osbourne, and I have to say the play was sounding really extraordinary in the hands of some of the actors we met. It's funny, and disturbing, and in many ways so very contemporary. Elen has dashed off now to meet with Alex, the set designger who sounds like he is going to do something truly beautiful with the 1940s guest house setting of the play. What a joy!
