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 or when the children have finally gone to bed and you can finally put your feet up. 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.

I am an actor, writer and recovering secondary English teacher. I was asked to be a part of BBC Writersroom’s Welsh Voices 2019/20 after being long listed for their Wales Writer in Residence last year and recently found out I made the top 2% for their Drama Room 2020 submissions.
I have a work in development that has been commissioned by BBC Writersroom and BBC Radio Wales and I am a current semi-finalist in the Blue Cat Screenplay Competition.

Q&A with Sarah Louise Madden
What inspires you to write?
I firmly believe that story telling is how we feel less alone, more understood and has the power to transform. Being from a council house myself, I want to tell authentic working class stories; voicing characters that are more than just their socio-economic situation.

Dating shows are everyone’s guilty pleasure - rarely do you see such a vulnerable, intimate side to strangers and, ultimately, they give us hope that love is achievable. In Love is Blind, Kaz wants to be loved for who she is - she just hasn’t quite worked out who that is yet.
