ROUGH DIAMONDS 2014 - 21 and 22 May, 7.30 pm at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
From a sulky spoilt princess who wants to be a serious politician to a Valleys lottery fortune won by the town's most unpopular man. From a poetic love memoir set in the Welsh mountains to a wild road rampage involving two men and a road-kill yeti. From the ghosts of the Japanese tsunami to the shadow of a murdered Nigerian mother. These are just some stories covered in the exciting collection of plays from Swansea University student writers featured in the 2014 Rough Diamonds programme at the Dylan Thomas Centre this week.
These two nights of ambitious new work encompass comedy, crime and compassion, with characters and locations drawn from many corners of the known world - and beyond.
Come and see the work of the writers of the future given their first professional presentation.
Isoken Renette Igharo
Aderonke Atoke Taiwo
Plus some special guests.
The evenings, made up from specially selected extracts from the plays written as part of their student portfolios, will be introduced and directed by playwright D.J. Britton, Associate Professor in Dramatic Writing at Swansea University. The works will be performed by Swansea's outstanding Fluellen Theatre Company.
May 21 and 22 at 7.30 pm, Dylan Thomas Centre. Tickets: £4 (standard) and £1.60 (PTL)
