This is a unique opportunity to witness full length works-in-progress, presented by professional creatives working in Wales and London.

Chippy Lane Productions Ltd. was founded in 2016 by Rebecca Jade Hammond, a Cardiff born actor, writer and producer. Her primary mission is to champion work in and beyond Wales, focusing on Welsh revivals and new Welsh and Wales-based writing.

Chippy Lane’s past work includes Gary Owen’s ‘Love Steals Us From Loneliness’, Chippy & Scratch: Shorts Nights and ‘GLAS’, an in-development project funded by Arts Council Wales and supported by Chapter Cardiff.

“It’s important to recognise that it is grass roots projects like this that help genuinely create a thriving arts scene.” Wales Arts Review

“So many of our most celebrated makers and writers came the Celts. The Welsh now and throughout history have given us voices, songs, stories, poets and thinkers that have and are still globally important.” Act For Change

“So far our work has been met with much support and an appetite. My aspiration is to one day become the “go-to company” for Welsh work and Welsh writing to be shared and enjoyed more widely across the UK.” Artistic Director, Chippy Lane Productions, What’s On Stage
