Breaking up isn’t easy. Especially when you’re locked down together.

TEN is all about giving you a short theatre fix that you can fit into your day. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a coffee break or the end of a day of remote working. The ten plays have been written by an exceptional line-up of emerging and established Welsh and Wales-based writers and are being self-filmed by a brilliant cast of actors.

TEN is made possible by a generous donation from an anonymous benefactor. TEN is inspired by Papatango’s Isolated But Open programme.

Q&A with Katie Elin-Salt

What inspires you as a writer?

Loads of things! However I started writing primarily because I wanted to tell stories about women being brave. I am particularly inspired by the stories of Welsh, working class women as these are the women that raised me that have inspired me always. I am also inspired by Welsh creatives writing brilliant and complex narratives about Welsh people - I think there is a real need for these stories to exist and be heard both in Wales and on a broader platform.

Tell us something about the play

Love (and Loss) in the time of Corona is inspired partly by personal experience and also the wider experiences of the strange world we find ourselves in. I wanted to look at the feeling many of my friends have mentioned about home suddenly feeling like a different place when you're forced to stay in it 24 hours a day - and also how many of our relationships with the people we are living with have been put under a microscope in this unexpected situation. I found the idea of someone who is forced to press pause and stuck in a situation they didn't choose trying their best to control what they can.
