The New Welsh Playwrights Programme has given participants the opportunity to develop their craft under the leadership of award-winning playwright Brad Birch. Sherman Theatre is passionate about providing a platform for Welsh and Wales-based writers, ensuring the future of the arts in this country goes from strength to strength. The programme is generously supported by The Carne Trust.
The current participants in the New Welsh Playwrights Programme are: Carys Jones, Isla Ure, Tracy Harris, Jacob Hodgkinson, Christopher Harris and Jon Berry.
"Without doubt Sherman Theatre as a whole has taken my writing to new levels, and this is in no small part down to the atmosphere and vibe emanating from the building itself, but that is nothing without the fervent support and creative nurturing of the people who’ve made the new."
