The nation of Wales is our stage:
From forests to beaches, from aircraft hangars to post-industrial towns, village halls to nightclubs.
We bring together storytelling poets, visual visionaries and inventors of ideas. We collaborate with artists, audiences, communities and companies to create theatre in the English language, rooted in Wales, with an international reach.
You’ll find us around the corner, across the mountain and in your digital backyard.
For its launch programme, the Theatre Map of Wales, running from March 2010 to April 2011, the company staged a new show each month: 13 productions in all, each one in a different location, and each using a different approach to theatre-making.
National Theatre Wales also undertook a real, in-depth engagement with local communitities: by basing most rehearsals in local spaces; through its TEAM programme, which recruited and trained advocates; and through the NTW Assembly, staged in each location where the company worked - using theatre to engage with debate around local issues.
Behind all of this activity lay a digital presence and an online community that has established the company at the forefront of digital thinking in theatre.
In Autumn 2011, National Theatre Wales began its second season of work, taking shows to village halls, major stages, nightclubs, aircraft hangars and forests. The company also set up WalesLab - an initiative for emerging theatre ideas using the Welsh landscape as an inspiration and laboratory.
"these brilliant offerings from the National Theatre of Wales... mean that we can no longer talk of 'the National' and mean only the South Bank."

The company's third year of productions is based around four in-depth residencies in locations ranging from Anglesey to Tokyo. At the same time, new experiments range from the company’s first touring live music gig to the takeover of our local castle!
National Theatre Wales has a sister company Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, which produces work throughout Wales and internationally in the Welsh language.
I am the Communications Assistant at National Theatre Wales. Before joining the company I was the Marketing Assistant at St David’s Hall in Cardiff.
I’m a communicator by nature, and it’s really hard to shut me up. Fortunately I’ve managed to repurpose this into a huge passion for sharing theatre and the arts with people from all over Wales and the world, and finding new and interesting ways to engage and inspire our audiences and collaborators.
As a self-confessed geek a lot of what I do involves digital and social media, and I’m particularly interested in the crossover between marketing, digital and art. I also love new ideas - creating them, hearing them, supporting them - so I can be relied upon for an alternative take on almost anything.
I have a BMus in Music from Cardiff University.
