Dramâu Micro

[Micro Plays]

In this first partnership between our organisations, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Cymru Fyw are working together to create Dramâu Micro [Micro Plays], a series of short plays to be shared on digital platforms. The plays – lasting up to 5 minutes each – will be written by members of Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s Grŵp Dramodwyr Newydd [New Playwrights’ Group] and will be an opportunity for them to develop their writing skills by experimenting on digital platforms. The plays will be created under social distancing conditions and shared on various digital platforms. The challenge for the playwrights will be to create plays that respond to the current crisis in an imaginative and exciting way. It will also be an opportunity to offer employment to freelance theatre and creative industries workers during a difficult period for the sector, and for our audiences to enjoy plays on-line whilst our theatres are closed. The plays will be available to view online in May and June. Further details will follow and more information about our New Playwrights’ Group is available here.

There are rainbows everywhere at the moment. Rainbows of thanks to our key workers and to the NHS.

But while completing the homework for his Welsh lesson, what – or who – is Nick thankful for?

Carys ac Andy by Elin Gwyn

With the lockdown restrictions keeping Carys and Andy apart, the couple turn to Zoom and FaceTime to keep in touch.

But between the daily exercise, pottering in the garden and the late-night downers, keeping a relationship going during lockdown isn’t easy.
