This is an extract from the document:

In line with work on other subject areas, ACW will fulfil the first activity/measure by extending this action plan over the five years of its present strategy. During 2001 – 2003 work focussed on the development of strategy and plans for the National Welsh Language Theatre company and the provision of theatre in education across Wales. Similar methods will be employed over the next four years to audit, review and develop strategy for the other strands of drama activity across Wales.

Significant progress has been made in terms of the development of the Welsh Language Theatre Company and the Theatre for Young People Work.
The Chair and Board have been appointed for the Welsh Language Theatre and the appointees will be taking forward the development in 2003/04. In addition two Welsh Language Theatre commissions were awarded in 2002/03 and will be opening in Spring and Autumn 2003.

The Theatre for Young People Working Group have put together a strategy for theatre in education over the next 10 years and this element of their work will be implemented from April 2003. During 2003/04 the working group will take forward the next tranch of their work that will include youth theatre and theatre for young people.

In parallel with this work in 2003-04 ACW will focus on middle and large scale English language production and touring. Work on the review of support for community touring in Wales will begin in 2003-04 but the main body of this work will be undertaken in 2004-05.

An up date and briefing on the drama portfolio and action plan will be given by Sandra Wynne at the annual conference on 19-20 May 2003.
