The Wasteground Circus

(See the poster and a rehearsal shot of Lucy Baldwin cloud-swinging in the play at the top of this page; click link for other images)

A pilot tour of this exciting new cross-form theatre-circus piece about friendship, the power of the imagination, and climate change, set in a futuristic flooded Britain, was originally planned for summer 2021 by TWO WOMEN Productions after an Arts Council England-funded R&D in Bristol in spring 2020. 


Due to Covid, it had to be postponed, but was eventually fully funded by the Arts Council of England, and, with the addition of an exciting Residency awarded to us by the wonderful Invisible Circus in Bristol, the show took place in July 2022, with indoor performances at Invisible Circus and outdoor performances at the brilliant venue The Roundhouse Heart of BS13.  We are now planning our national tour of this show.  Keep your eyes peeled!

A History of Wales in A Nutshell

Now completed - 2 x 20 minute fun scripts encapsulating Welsh history for schools' audiences - and what an exciting challenge they were.  The next stage planned by CADW is to go into rehearsal with them with 3 actors over 3 weeks to live stream performances for primary schools in 2024/5.

For Elly Strigner

Never Not A Mum

This is a new project with talented animator Elly, in which we are collecting stories from Mums - about pregnancy, birth, caring and coping, in fact, any 'Mum' type experience - for future animation by Elly - and possibly a book - and possibly a play.  Watch this space!

The Sea-Hawk

A brilliant commission to write a new play about ospreys, conservation, romantic relationships and global citizenship, for small children and their families - to tour outdoor spaces nationally and internationally in summer 2025




Short Story

I'm currently hoping to work with a Welsh landscape artist as illustrator on Little Dipper and The Star, a short story that was originally commissioned by Loggerheads Park in North Wales, for publication as a children's story-book
