Theatr Iolo's International touring programme flourishes with a return to Australia in 2016

The performances at both venues of their production of Dylan Thomas's Adventures in the Skin Trade were extremely well attended by the public and also by school groups in Melbourne who are studying Lucy Gough's adaptation of Thomas's unfinished novel following its inclusion on the syllabus for drama in the state of Victoria.

Directed by Theatr Iolo’s artistic director Kevin Lewis, Adventures in the Skin Trade was equally well received by critics, The Sydney Morning Herald awarded it four stars (describing it as a "powerfully- staged adaptation") as did the Daily Review who praised this "lively, winning production that revels in the talent and energy of Thomas’s writing, its wit and wild fantasy."

Out of the Blue, their co-production with Sarah Argent for babies aged 6 - 18 months, enjoyed a sell-out run in both venues and had the honour of being the first show for this age group ever to be programmed at Sydney Opera House.

Their new show, Boxy & Sticky for children aged 3 - 6, Boxy & Sticky is created and directed by Sarah Argent and sold out its week long run at Chapter Arts Centre over the Easter holidays earlier this year. Émer Harrington, Programme Manager, Families and Young People at Arts Centre Melbourne was invited to see the production during a visit to the UK and was eager to bring this production about two characters reveling in the universal games children play

Following its run in Australia, Boxy & Sticky will embark on a UK-wide tour intent on delighting more young audiences with its combination of humour and warmth backed by especially composed music.
