See the work of Swansea's Creative Writing students performed at the Dylan Thomas Centre

ROUGH DIAMONDS 2014 - 21 and 22 May, 7.30 pm at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea

Graduate Centre blocks thin

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.

Writers include:

Wendy Holborow
Isoken Renette Igharo
Eli Martin
Jennah Simon

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.
