Our fifth visit to the Glamorgan Drama League's annual One-Act Play Festival at Swansea's Dylan Thomas Theatre. Our fifth time of winning the Youth Award.

This year the winning production was Cotton Girls, by Scott Tobin, with Dennis Kelly's DNA following closely behind it - so the adjudicator told us. Ian Sarginson GODA, our adjudicator for the second year in a row in Swansea, loved the attention to detail, the ensemble playing and the commitment to what he recognised must have been an intensive rehearsal schedule, especially for DNA. He singled out in Cotton Girls its recognition and celebration of American-ness, its cultural impression. He also liked the strength of team within the show, with actors and director obviously having worked so closely together.

We performed some songs from Masters of the Musical on the last night - Dafydd Gape and Dafydd Weeks delivering a gorgeous Pretty Women and the rest of the group with Our Time - ensuring that once again the audience could see just how talented the company is!

While we were there, we got to know Huw Dylan Ellis - grandson of Dylan Thomas - who has kindly agreed to become our Honorary Patron.

Another excellent and diverse set of performances by The Unknown Theatre Company in a non-singing environment. Standards maintained!

Photos from the evening to follow shortly.




The full story of the night, including the list of winners, will be found shortly on the GDL's website, where a photogallery of winners will soon be available.
