At the end of a manic week in Edinburgh the grand news is that after Deepcut's success last year you g Welsh artist Dafydd James and colaborator Ben lewis have one one of the fringe's major awards as the best music theatre show for their gorgeously deranged, musically masterful and very funny indeed production My Name is Sue at the Total Theare Awards. As one of the judges I wish I could say I fought through Twelve Angry Men style odds to get this righteous result but in fact, despite strong competition from major artists like David Greig there was pretty wide agreement that this piece of demented Welsh genius deserrved the crown. We all look forward to Sue's future adventures! Other thrills have included Poweplant by Wales -based installation artist Mark Anderson and the joys of free venue Forest Fringe - which has brought the joy of chilling out, failing to make any money and focusing on art back to Edinburgh. More soon with better spelling!

Perhaps Sue should be the subject of the NTW site's first celebrity interview once she returns...

Thanks for all of your support everyone. Sue is very much looking forward to returning to Wales for a warm mug of tea and a little sleep. When she wakes from hibernation she very much looks forward to singing a few tunes to her friends from home. x

Forgot to mention on that blog from my phone that True Fiction Theatre were another big hit last year with Exquisite Corpse. And also that the sun was shining - hence the blot title!!

Don’t miss this! ‘No petrol for 12 miles’: Ed Thomas’s thought-provoking & deeply moving installation on the mountainside at Penwyllt (Upper Swansea Valley) exploring cultural loss & memory. Brilliant stuff. @JHAFCymru @NTWtweets @royalcourtpic.twitter.com/1XAs1T1IaQ
