He has worked extensively in the UK and internationally in a broad range of theatre, educational and community contexts. For details in respect of Theatr Powys policy and practice see: Theatr Powys seeks to offer discourse. Through the art forms of theatre and drama, the Company provides opportunity for profound individual and social exploration and expression; creating story that stirs the minds of young and old alike in a broad variety of community and educational contexts in Powys, Wales and the wider community. "Once again the Company has proved itself in the vanguard of producing relevant and challenging work for children. It demonstrated a very high level of understanding as to how children learn?the resulting debate and analysis was at times remarkable?" Roger Wooster, Senior Lecturer at University of Wales, Newport "NEVER let anyone tell you that community theatre is simplistic ? even when its target audience is, as it is with most Theatr Powys shows, anyone over the age of six. Angel, the Llandrindod-based company?s latest touring show, is chock-a-block full of ideas, images and emotions almost to bursting point ? and yet, when I caught up with it at Ystradgynlais, the primary school-age kids were totally engaged with a very complex piece of theatre." David Adams, The Western Mail "Youth theatre has always had such positive outcomes on everybody?s lives. It is a fabulous, amazing thing to happen and would be a good thing to happen to anybody at any age. Thank you for helping to make me who I am" Ex MPYT member
