New Welsh Review Theatr in Wales supplement number 65Ghost City in New York
Simon Harris
Gary Owen has been widely acclaimed as one of the most exciting new playwrights to emerge in Wales in recent years. Earlier this year, Sgript Cymru took his latest production, Ghost City, to 59E59 in New York – a recently established theatre with a focus on the staging of new writing. New Welsh Review asked Sgript Cymru’s Artistic Director, Simon Harris, to keep a performance diary.

Ed Thomas
Ed Thomas’s new play, Stone City Blue, opens at Theatr Clwyd this autumn. In this piece, he reflects on the process of writing his first play in six years, following the widespread success of his previous work, which includes House of America and Song From A Forgotten City.

Why can ’t it happen here?
Roger Williams
This spring, Roger Williams was invited to take his latest play, Lingua, to New Zealand. The reception that the play received there, in the context of a theatre scene interested primarily in new writing and a cultural variety of voices, prompted him to reflect on the situation in Wales.

Have I the write?
Sam Boardman-Jacobs
Radio Scriptwriting, edited by Sam Boardman-Jacobs, has just been published by Seren Books. In this autobiographical piece, he reflects upon the process of learning and teaching the art of scriptwriting. His extensive experience in the field includes his current post as Reader in Theatre and Media Drama at the University of Glamorgan.

So what’s this National Theatre debate?
Amidst discussions about the value and scope of the newly established Welsh-language national theatre company, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, debates about the need for an English-language National Theatre for Wales have recently been rekindled. David Adams summarises the key issues involved and questions the value of a such a National Theatre.

New Welsh Review, following their recent revamp, are no longer producing a seperate theatre supplement. However, we hope to be able to republish what articles on theatre and performance that they continue to commission
