"I believe that we need plays like Wolfie at this time because they challenge the limitations we can put on ourselves in terms of how ‘difficult stories’ are told." - Izzy Rabey

My name is Izzy and I’ll be directing the play-reading of Wolfie by Ross Willis for NTW’s Network series. Wolfie is a play I read last year on a train back from London and I inhaled it, quickly deciding it was the next play I wanted to direct. I had never laughed out loud at stage directions before. As a director, you’re always hungry for the next play which is going to churn up something inside you, and ignite this I-Can’t-Not-Direct-This feeling which is…

"The dreams are like ancient scripture, we treat them reverently. These are fragments of peoples subconscious" - Emily Laurens

Dream a Little Dream For Me by Emily Laurens

I have been living with dreams for 3 weeks now. Other peoples dreams. I dream about dreams. Other peoples nightmares have given me nightmares. In Wales May is a time when the veil between worlds is thin, Calan Mai, May Day Eve, is ysbryd nos, a spirit night, much like…

Have been meaning to make contact since NTW began and a conversation with Carl Lavery has pushed me into action - he said 'I must talk to you'. I do find the approaches you have been finding in NTW inspiring and imaginative so its about time I got in touch! I grew up in West Wales and have been active making work as director and performer in the South West and Wales since 1996. For various reasons in the last 6 years I have been more engaged with teaching and research. I think it is time now to make work, be a practitioner again, I have a number of ideas which are perhaps 'at the edges of theatre' that I would like to develop, and am wondering how I might weave something into the NTW net(work). Could we have a chat sometime as I am not sure how my experience and skills best fit into the different channels of development you have at NTW? You can see some information on my profile page and my website is www.ailsarichardson.com Best, Ailsa

Hi John - didn't get a chance to say hello or even goodbye yesterday... we'd had a punishing journey down on the rugby train and were under pressure to shove back on to get home again - 2 carriages! can you believe it???   we survived standing for 2 hours and got seats around Ludlow... despite that, Film Team had an amazing time - thanks again to you all for a fantastic party!

Hello John,

Really interested in getting more involved with NTW, despite my age! Any advice about Group/s to join please? Acting and Directing work to date mainly with schools, Colleges, and some Adult groups, but keen to do more and to network! Have offered to work on a voluntary basis at NTW if appropriate and required.

Thank you John.  I'm so pleased to have discovered this community, as living in London has often made me feel so remote from  welsh roots and connections.  It's great to see such lively creativity being used which I hope I can contribute to, both as an Actress and writer .  Here's to a good year ahead for all

Good letter about Freedom Theatre John, thanks!

I thought people might be interested in this poem I've drafted for Jacob....Apologies if this isn't the right place to post it.

F.X .

A poem for Jacob Gough 31st July 2011.

 

Midnight chimes. Moist air carries the clangs

and the rattle-roar of the dark train that mends

the track between here and your old home, Aber.

 

No stranger to small hours, you work on

after rehearsals to make effects, cue sound

and light and programme visions.

 

At The Barmouth Assembly we asked,

What’s left after the summer tides?

And stormed the ice cream parlour

 

with music, words and war games

from Play Station conscripts. Barmouth’s band

of back bedroom snipers fire at screens of empty towns.

 

Now, manager of Freedom Theatre in Jenin,

your Call of Duty at 3.30 a.m. is to witness

the humiliation of your technician,

 

to squat in broken glass and become hostage

with young children whilst arrests are made.

Real IDF commandos with real guns,

 

pledged to uphold the impossible

‘Purity of Arms’ code to, “maintain

humanity even in combat.”

 

Earlier, on a level patch of Welsh hillside,

I reeled through a martial form: slow, elegant,

designed only to deflect unarmed attack.

 

The energy ball I held was an imagined globe

one hand on Wales, the other on Palestine.

Special ops were the hand-over of sky-

 

 

 

screaming swifts to soft fluttering bats.

Whilst turning the tides of Tai Chi

I focused on your impeccable sense

 

of timing, sharp ability to read cues

and hope this keeps you safe as gun

muzzles bore and silence.
