Calling Time by Derek Webb - Five light'n'dark comedies in one!, at Grand Theatre, Singleton Street, Swansea, SA1 3QJ

April 30, 2011 from 12:30am to 1:45pm
A woman shares a revelation with her friend about her recently deceased husband. A man meeting a woman on a blind date has unforeseen consequences. When an MP meets a journalist who will come out on top? Two apparent strangers meet in a pub, but appearances can be very deceptive, especially when one can't keep her thoughts to herself. And when a young man carrying a suspicious bag comes in, why do thoughts turn to terrorism?The five short plays that make up 'Calling Time' all take place in the…See More

Dirty Business at Grand Theatre, Swansea

September 25, 2010 from 12:30pm to 1:45pm
A topical and torrid tale of planned Council cuts, cleaners and a pair of red knickers is my contribution to reducing the national deficit - well at least you can laugh about it. It's called 'Dirty Business' and it opens the new season of Lunchtime Theatre from Fluellen at the Grand, Swansea on Saturday 25th September.

Time to save a theatre

Up here on the North Pembrokeshire coast, there's not much in the way of theatre. And the one theatre we do have, Pembrokeshire County Council is intent on closing - by way of council cuts. Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard was (from the 1920s) a cinema, and still is - but from the 1990s it was reconfigured with stage and lighting for theatre and musical events. Closing the theatre would not only deprive the North Pembrokeshire community of an important entertainment venue, but one which can bring the…See More

Ah, I see - small world and all that! Are you going to Rhosygilwen for the launch? Richard said it would be a good chance for me to meet up with everyone.

I met her at the London Book Fair recently, officially I was there with Parthian, promoting another book they’re bringing out this Spring, called ‘Mrs D'Silva and the Shaitan of Calcutta’, it is a brilliant story, set in a school in Calcutta. We're trying to get money for an Indian screen adaptation. However, mainly I was hanging out with mates from the British Council in Kolktata whom I haven’t seen for ages and going to parties, apparently to make a film you have to go to lots of parties :-) Anyway at one of these parties, I met Penny and we got talking about your book.

I heard all about it from Penny and I said it sounds like it would make a great play too! I sent Penny some options for funding and told her to get back to me if I could help. Sorry to have missed your stuff in Swansea by the way, its been stupidly busy the last couple of months, did it go well?

Sadly not, I am directing a play in Huddersfield and I couldn't get there. I hear it was great. When's your book out? I look forward to reading it.
