Directing 

"Directed by Eifion Ap Cadno, The Dip manages to never rely on causing its characters unnecessary pain, instead successfully endeavouring to explore the highs and lows of personal discovery without settling comfortably into tragedy."
Wales Arts Review

In my second year of training at East 15 Acting School we studied Augusto Boal and his Theatre of the Oppressed. I directed a devised forum theatre piece about revenge porn called Caught In The Web and during the performance I played the role of the Joker - the facilitator who acts as the link between the actors and audience, or spect-actors. Shortly after, I partnered up with Nick Young to direct his original short "Tooters", which can be found at the bottom of this page.


In my third year I directed my debut play The Dip as part of Debut Festival 2018. Around the same time I founded my theatre company Milk and Blood. After graduating we took the show to the Edinburgh Fringe where it was loved by audiences and critics alike and won the Head of Steam Award 2018 for Best Comedy. It then transferred to The Space in London for a week's run, picking up further five and four star reviews. Oh, and a much loved one star. These can be found here.

On Sunday 30th June I directed Claire Boot's script-in-progress Seize the Crisp as part of The Other Room's SEEN: Crossroads programme. More information on TOR and its scratch platform SEEN can be found here.

Working with the delicious comedy-theatre company Moose & Noodle Soup on their hilarious debut show has been a delight. *A GREAT BIG SIGH* premiered at The Hope Theatre early July before transferring to the Hen & Chickens Theatre for a one week run in September. While this may be it for now, this isn't the end.

"Fifty minutes of joy that’s well worth catching."

"With enthusiastic direction from Eifion Ap Cadno, *a great big sigh* is worth tasting."
Close-Up Culture

 

The world outside is (probably) falling apart. Walter has no friends and Tina desperately wants to survive: nothing could possibly be spookier. In this riotous comedy we see these two strangers trapped with nothing but a few clues they must solve together in order to escape this flabbin' heckin' basement!

"Moose & Noodle Soup represents a unique international collaboration. Individually they bring immense passion, dedication and hilarity to their work."
Jesse Briton (Fringe First award-winning company Bear Trap Theatre)
