Caitlin was the wife of poet Dylan Thomas. At the start of the 70s, twenty years after he died, she started going to Alcoholics Anonymous. In a circle of 20 chairs, set out for an AA meeting Caitlin makes a determined effort to deal with her tempestuous past. The audience of just 16-20 sits with Caitlin in the circle as she revisits her life with Dylan. The unoccupied chairs become part of the action in this physical and powerful duet. The audience are placed at the heart of action and are witness to Caitlin’s recounting of a relationship that was fuelled by love, addiction, jealousy and infidelity. The work is brutal and tender, physically powerful and at times grotesque.

Directed by Deborah Light. Devised with and performed by Eddie Ladd and Gwyn Emberton.

During the residency, there will be time for making and sharing new work, for reflection, discussion and investigation of personal approaches to making, and how work is made in the wider world.

The group will be made up of a diverse group of 16 artists at different stages of their careers, from emerging to more established. As a participant, you will have space and time to test out ideas, working with other members of the group.

There will be opportunities for you to share what you have been up to, and to engage in critical discourse.
