The Sherman Theatre is hosting a brilliant half-term activity this week.  Please go along if you can!

TAITH is our initiative for new writing that develops and showcases innovative and exciting 10 minute plays in Welsh or English. From an open submission process, three writers have been selected with their scripts developed and worked on with professional actors and directors.

This year we have teamed up with Theatr Iolo and Platfform to present three scripts aimed at audiences aged 10 – 12 and their families. The readings will be followed by a post-show discussion with the writers.

These pieces have been developed over three weeks with three directors as well as an intensive development period with Ned Glasier, Artistic Director of Company Three.
