We won the British Final Festival. The first time a Welsh entry has won since 1994.

Other details : Some time ago, Jack and Holly enjoyed a brief love affair over New Year, in Salzburg. Now, reunited to create a recording about love at first sight, they recall their experiences of the romance of the city, and of each other.  But memory distorts, and their memories do not always match. 

"You will recall anything when you are in the grip of it. But they are no longer there ... It is never quite the same.

Barney Norris's delicate and touching play reminds us how easy it is to forget, to lose sight of how we felt in the past - and how that makes us see ourselves now.

Other details:
You're young, free and single and have been celibate for the last eleven and a half months. Then one morning you wake up pregnant, and here is the Angel Gabriel on your doorstep claiming parentage.

In Oliver Lansley's Immaculate things quickly spiral into farcical confusion with no fewer than three more potential fathers claiming parentage, one of them an ex-boyfriend, one of them a nerdish contemporary from school that you wouldn't want to be seen dead with, and the third being Satan himself.

Presented by Cardiff's award-winning Unknown OUTCasts (our drama group for older members), Immaculate follows the company's acclaimed production of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart in Lefel 1 in November 2015

Please note: This play contains strong language and some really rude bits! (not suitable for children)

1997 was a big year. Dolly the Sheep had hit the big time. Some people thought that the 'internet' and 'mobile phones' could be quite popular. Labour would win the election. Everything was changing. And then there was Diana....

...

In a small corner of Cardiff, Quincy Jones - 18 years old (no boyfriend) and full of relentless optimism, is setting out to make the world a better place...

Funny and moving, with plenty of toetapping original songs, '97 promises to be a great evening out for all the family.

Suitable for all ages, under 11 year olds must be accompanied by an adult.

Other details : Cult, a new musical. November 1978.

918 members of the People's Temple died in Jonestown. This is the story of some of those who died and the ongoing power of Cult. Collaboration by The Unknown Theatre Company (Wales) and McCurdy Theatre Arts (USA).

This piece has been written by James Williams and the Company using ideas developed in a workshop. This is the 9th appearance at the Fringe for this dynamic young people's musical theatre company.
