Glammies moderator's report

A Zoo Story:

"Overall appraisers thought this was an exciting and enjoyable performance, very well acted by two talented young actors ... held my attention throughout ... and . the acting was spellbinding."

Can't Stand Up for Falling Down:

"All the appraisers thoroughly enjoyed the production and all praised the way the actors and director worked together to produce a memorable piece of theatre."

One appraiser wrote "I got the impression that this was a new venture, that you weren't quite sure if this type of evening would work. Rest assured, it did, please do this again."

And more...    

The strange timings for the play were due to us having to work around bookings in Roath Church House. We would have performed on the Saturday night, if we'd been able to!

Technical wizardry produced from nowhere on the night by Lucy Chiplin. And once again when we took the shows to Swansea for the one-act play festival.

We did very well at the Glamorgan Drama League's Glammies Awards night. See the awards list below.

The plays were also entered for the Glamorgan Drama League's One-Act Play Festival, held in Swansea's Dylan Thomas Theatre on March 10th & 11th 2006. See above for the awards they won. Unfortunately, neither was invited to perform at the All Wales One-Act Festival, but it must have been close!
