Gogol’s tragicomic masterpiece Diary of a Madman centres around the life of Axenty Ivanov, a civil servant who casts himself as a victim of unrequited love. As he records his diary, he foresakes the security of an ordered life and spirals into a world of fantasy and despair. On the way, he tells of his growing obsession with Sophie (the enchanting daughter of his superior), his difficult relationship with his Head of Department, his dependency on his landlady, Mavra and two little dogs who contemplate his hopelessness. As sanity evaporates, he assumes a new role as the rightful king of Spain. When he is finally committed to an asylum, he finds the Spanish court very odd indeed.
The production will visit venues across Wales and will ask audiences to consider how it might feel to live far away from home, in a land that they do not recognise, hearing a language they do not understand.

Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas - a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make. He doesn't want to go, but he cannot get out of it...
In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with Leaf by Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. Surrounded by ladders, bicycles and heirlooms, Richard Medrington (Jean from The Man Who Planted Trees) recounts Tolkien's miniature masterpiece, with soundtrack by Karine Polwart and MJ McCarthy.
When a young boy mysteriously disappears, Freddie and Rita are forced to confront the truth of their marriage. An intense, surreal and honest exploration of a couple who find themselves facing their ultimate fear. Inspired by Ibsen's Little Eyolf, Little Wolf speaks to the heart of our current uncertainty.
'Folk' explores the relationships between people and how they behave when they are in a group compared to how they behave when they are on their own. What makes people form a group or a particular connection with someone? What ostracises people from a group and how does this affect their behaviour? The dancers were encouraged to create characters based on the variety and expression of the characters and communities you see in old 17th and 18th century oil paintings in order to create a surreal-yet-familiar community for the characters in the piece to exist in. This pushes the fine line between fantasy and reality; a world which is not immediately identifiable or recognisable, yet which we can all relate to on some level.
Journalist, television presenter and best-selling author Ned Boulting presents for the first time an honest, self-effacing walk through the world of Bikeology. What drives the cyclist (apart from a sturdy, well-oiled chain) to such ecstasies of endurance? What curious, deep-rooted passions are aroused by the sight of a simple pair of padded shorts? And what on earth is a derailleur? From the humble commuter to the winner of the Tour de France, Boulting takes an off-centre look at what it means to ride a bike, drawing on his own underwhelming adventures in the saddle to his fourteen summers spent hurtling around France in pursuit of the sport's biggest name including no less than Cavendish, Wiggins, Froome and of course Armstrong. A breakneck descent through the history of the sport followed by a lung-bursting climb into the present day - all two-wheeled life is here. Keep your wits about you and be ready to compete in the ultimate test of bicycle maintenance against Olympian gold-medallists Sir Chris Hoy, Chris Boardman and perhaps a few others...
