Before It Rains

Funny, brave and beautifully told, Before It Rains is a tale of parenthood, protection and provocation set on a proud, forgotten Cardiff estate.

Bird (Chandler)

Winner of a Judges Award in the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, Bird is a raw, delicate and bold play about growing up in a care home, and eventually leaving it for the outside world.

Thick As Thieves

A tense, revealing play that explores what it means to care for one another and asks who, in a time of increasing disconnect, we expect to look after us.

Lose Yourself

A fast and wild ride into the darker side of our celebrity obsessed culture.
