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 Observer
National Theatre Wales reinvents the language of theatre every time it puts on a show"
- The Daily Telegraph
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.
Hi, I’m Jenny and I’ve recently become the Finance Assistant for National Theatre Wales. My journey to National Theatre Wales has seen me work at amazing, raving music festivals and travel all across the World from Europe to Asia, and America to Africa.
Six years ago I decided to swap my festival wellies and holiday bikini for a calculator and Microsoft Excel, and embark on a career in the finance sector. I am currently studying towards an AAT qualification, and hoping to progress towards an ACCA qualification next year (for all non-finance geeks this means I’ll be a fully qualified accountant).
At National Theatre Wales I am responsible for all things finance based, but it’s not all numbers and spreadsheets for me here. We’re all encouraged to be a part of every production and broaden our knowledge of the theatre in general. It’s a fun, exciting work environment and with so many different people and innovative projects, it really is a dream job.
Away from work I like animals, especially pandas, ice cream and sleeping late on Saturdays.
