National Theatre Wales is all set to create invigorating theatre in the English language, rooted in Wales, with an international reach.As Mark Brown reports in The Guardian:
This is the launch programme from March 2010 – April 2011. Twelve new shows, one each month, plus one spectacular finale – in amazing places and unique spaces across Wales.
Getting to the launch has been a long journey. Dai Smith, the chairman of Arts Council Wales, said: "We have been putting our toes in the water for too long. It was inexcusable, outrageous, that we did not have a national theatre for Wales. It may be 100 years late, but better late than not at all."Guild member Gary Owen is among those commissioned for the launch season - his new play, Love Steals Us From Loneliness, will premiere in Bridgend in October 2010.
