Dear Friends and Theatre Lovers,
Are you now, or have you ever been in a Llandovery Theatre Company youth, community or professional performance or drama workshop under the direction of Simon and Jacky Barnes – 1975 to 2006?
Were you one of the Llandovery Young Farmers who toured with us to Aberystwyth, through snow and blizzards to reach the Theatre for a performance of Dick Whittington just 3 minutes before curtain up? Did you also act in Under Milk Wood and Oh What a Lovely War? Were you in the Roald Dahl Literacy and drama workshops in 1997/78? Did you perform in David Copperfield, The Old Curiosity Shop, Jane Eyre, Ring of Roses, The Pied Piper – at the Llandovery Theatre and Festivals?
Did you attend evening drama workshops with Simon and Jacky, and perform in numerous pantomimes, starting with a musical play Long Live Love? Did you perform in Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, The Taming of the Shrew?
Did you help us decorate the Art Gallery naming it The Anne Marie Griffiths Gallery? And most importantly, were you one of the workers who helped us build the theatre 1975 – 1996?
If you were any one of these amazing people, then you are most cordially invited to join us on Saturday September 17th, to help us launch the Theatre Memoir …
WHAT COUNTRY FRIENDS IS THIS? for you will almost certainly find you are included in this most remarkable Theatrical Journey.
I, Horatio Nelson, am myself part of WHAT COUNTRY FRIENDS IS THIS? and also responsible for writing the foreword to the book, so I am able to fully recommend this intriguing and fascinating tale – it is both a love story and a theatrical adventure.
Sincerely – Horatio Nelson
