Possible tour - National Theatre Wales

Possible tour

About Possible by Shôn Dale-Jones

Shôn’s new show was going to be all about love. But what do you do when you’re writing a show all about love, and everything goes dark? You find a new story. A story with scones after midnight, family WhatsApp groups, and Grandmaster Flash.

Possible is a playful, honest and heartfelt piece of storytelling that blurs reality with a kaleidoscopic dreamscape of animation and film (by Bear Thompson), underscored with original music performed live by John Biddle. It’s a show about love, creativity and finding the courage to explore the past, in order to shape the future.

Perfectly judged, unabashedly authentic and vulnerably autobiographical  ★★★★ The Guardian

Possible was first created as a digital experience streamed live into audiences’ homes while we couldn’t be together.  Now, as venues across Wales reopen their doors, Possible is coming to a stage near you, welcoming you back to live theatre, in person… like a big theatrical welcome home hug.

Listen to Shôn’s interview with the BBC Radio Wales Art Show, where he explores his upbringing in North Wales and the art of storytelling.
