Cathernie I have recentlty joined the writers group and have found out that I can submit work to you.  Attached are some scenes (they might not run in the order they are and much needs to be reworked and developed etc)from a play I am working on at present called "Malegria" and below some ideas on the developing text as it stands at present :-

The idea that a character’s search for meaning can powerfully engage an audience has prompted this exploration. I started with the idea of using an imaginative approach to a character’s search for self identity based on a loose plotline which follows a woman’s house renovation project; symbolically the house is representative of her real and imagined self.  Fact, fiction, fantasy and art I reason can be combined in order to explore important questions e.g. is it possible to imagine, construct and enact alternative identities which are closer to ideas of an essential or authentic self  in an age when  experience and thinking is so heavily shaped by  the media and the pervasive structures of capitalism and consumerism?  I also wanted to explore ideas of loss and the potential for reclamation and therefore in part the text has features of a memory play and utilises concepts of collective or folk memories (this aspect of the text is developed through the presence of Welsh Mam a character which in part is representational of a female/wild goddess rooted in folk tales and memory e.g. Baba Yaga and developed in the archetypal psychological sense through feminist interpretations of the theories of Carl Jung). To elaborate further the text in part is an attempt to provoke the audience to think about life, death, loss and reclamation and in a broader sense the search for meaning, through juxtaposing representations of modern and postmodern contexts. The post modern context is represented through central character Val who has bought a ‘renovation project’ at auction, and whose venture is being filmed for a reality TV series. The modern is represented by the letters which she finds, written by Welsh miners who decided to join the international brigade to fight against Franco during the Spanish Civil war (fact). Mediating between these two worlds is the archetypal character of Welsh Mam who has now ‘reinvented herself’ and is working in a contact centre.Malegria.doc

Hia Catherine,
Hope you're well! If you're free at all next week then it would be great if you could come along to the New Theatre - I'm there with 'Guys & Dolls'. It's a co-production between Clwyd Theatr Cymru, the New Wolsey, Ipswich and Salisbury Playhouse and with 22 Actor-Musicians in the cast it's a great, unique production.
If you're able to make it I personally guarantee you one dozen genuine sinners... Erm, I mean, a marvellous evening!
Hope all's good at NTW.

Hi Catherine, thank you for the suggestion and invite to the New Critics group, sounds like a great idea and would be really interesting to share opinions and idea's with the New Critcs and others in the group. As I am always looking for new ways to develop and tackle my own critcal and writing voice to.

Hi Catherine, thanks for getting back to me. I am London-based but am home from around the 20th Dec. If that's too close to Christmas though we could meet in the new year? My family live in Creigiau now and I have a car so can pop to Cardiff anytime. Just joined the Actor's Group. Thanks again and I look forward to meeting you!
