Thanks for the positive response Adele!

One thing I would also add is that since we are calling this a "new critics" scheme, we don't just want to offer this opportunity to "young" people, but rather to all the wild and wonderful people in Wales, regardless of age, who are passionate about theatre and interested in developing their critical writing skills and experiences.

Looking forward to reading everyone's fantastic submissions!
