My indulgent sentimental gushing has begun...

All of the incredible memories and friends and images from 4 years of setting up this company, and making 22 shows, and building this gorgeous family of 4,000 of you... 

Thinking about what I will miss... 

the A470 

having a transformative theatre moment in the lashing rain, because of the lashing rain

the big tea pot, gathering around it

the fast-forward non stop hurtle through it all 

cycling round towns, scoping, stopping to talk

every single brilliant gorgeous actor, in a makeshift dressing room (cupboard, classroom, shipping container, pub, van)

the breadth of friends and partners: the army / the WI / a pub / a rugby club / the BBC / film agency wales / and on and on

the surprises

the midnight future-vision emails from Matt Lawton

grass stains 

muddy boots

starry nights

there will be more of this, gird yourselves...

Not going to blub.  Really not. Just going to go for a walk in the pouring rain...

I will miss midnight future-vision emailing and walking meetings on fast forward

*sobs inconsolably*

The A470 is a completely legitimate and vital thing to miss, it's a brilliant part of Wales. How about before you go we make an interactive installation-based immersive experience? All the way along it.
