The latest initiative to come from the Sherman 5 project is a series of Lights Down, Listen Sessions in collaboration with BBC Wales Radio Drama. The second of these events will be held on 27 November, at the Sherman Theatre at 6.30pm.
Come along to the Sherman to listen, with other audience members, to a BBC Wales radio drama by Welsh and Wales-based writers. After hearing the play in the Sherman Studio there will be the opportunity to meet someone involved with the production: sometimes it might be the writer, on other occasions it may be an actor who performed in the radio play or the director.
Terrace by Dafydd James is a darkly comic story of love, loss and prejudice.
When Stevie's boyfriend Matthew becomes seriously ill, the couple move into a new house, complete with wheelchair access and a downstairs toilet. However, Cardiff's multicultural Grangetown is far from the peaceful idyll they were hoping for. The walls are thin and you can hear everything, even whispered conversations if you put your ear to the wall. As Matthew's condition worsens, Stevie is drawn into a sinister story happening next door.
Before listening to the radio drama, there will be the chance to view a selection of exclusive photographic images of Butetown, Riverside and Grangetown by Cardiff photographers, John Briggs, Jon Pountney and Dan Green.
After hearing the play in the Sherman Studio there will be the opportunity to meet some of the people involved with creating this production in a Question and Answer session.
In attendance will be James Robinson Producer BBC Radio Drama and Dafydd James the writer of Terrace. We will be discussing contemporary Cardiff in a conversation led by visual artist Rabab Ghazoul.
This production features mature content and adult themes.
