I completed my undergraduate studies here in the Welsh department at Swansea in 2011. I then decided to do a Masters through Research and a PhD here, both funded by the AHRC. My Masters through Research thesis considered to what extent Gwenlyn Parry could be consodered an absurdist playwright. The PhD allowed me to look at the Theatre of the Absurd in Wales in more detail and to answer the following question - is it time to bid farwell to the Theatre of the Absurd in Wales? I'm currently developing an element of the PhD, the work on Aled Jones Williams by comparing him with a Catalan playwright Sergi Belbel.
