Putting the Specs into Spectacular  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh Boy... it's so good! The Buddy Holly Story is still packing the theatres in after 25yrs and over 25,000 performances worldwide and it's clear to see why.

Jig-So by Lloyd Macey

23-year-old Lloyd Macey launched “Jig-So” as part of his final-year project working towards his BA Perfformio at University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Featuring familiar faces such as Boyd Clack, whose acting credits include “Twin Town” and “High Hopes”, and Shelley Rees-Owen, who is known for her role as Stacey in “Pobol y Cwm”, “Jig-So” was an incredibly impressive project for anyone, let alone a university student. It took place on Friday 12th May at Yr Hen Lyfrgell - despite the drama only lasting for 30 minutes, it was very heartwarming and engaging. It's a bilingual drama revolving around a family in the Valleys that has to deal with the struggle of cancer, which according to Lloyd, is a subject close to his heart. Amazing performances, staging and lighting - overall an excellent evening. Definitely keep an eye out for Lloyd's upcoming performances - he certainly is one to look out for! Lloyd's directorial d├ębut was a great success, and we wish him the best of luc…

A Different Brain

On Wednesday 3rd May, Spilt Milk Theatre joined forces with Cardiff Fringe Fest at The Gate Arts Centre to celebrate and raise awareness of Autism. All proceeds went to The National Autistic Society to aid in their continuous provision of specialist services. The first half of the evening consisted of spoken word, poetry and a music performance inspired by personal relationships with Autism. Almost all performers recited an original piece, making the evening more touching, heartfelt and realistic. The second half of the evening was dedicated to a scratch performance of ‘A Different Brain’, a new musical written and composed by Tobias Weatherburn, whose older brother suffers from Autism. ‘A Different Brain’ documents a series of events in the life of Rachel, a young woman with Autism. Despite only being a three-man cast, the musical was impressive, moving and engrossing. Combining a serious matter with light comedy worked really well, allowing all audiences to have more of an insight …
