"Belonging" / "A Sunny Disposition" / "Bird"

Recent reviews for the British Theatre Guide - as usual, a varied and stimulating lot.

First up - "Belonging/Perthyn" at Chapter; Karin Diamond's take on two different families' response to dementia.

Next: "A Sunny Disposition"; a late addition to the Insomnia season at The Other Room - Nicola Reynold's debut play, a sobering monologue about addiction, performed by Neal McWilliams.

Finally: "Bird" - Katherine Chandler's award-winning script finally brought to life at the Sherman; featuring an impressively raw performance from Georgia Henshaw as a teenage girl leaving the care system.
Cardiff theatricals have much to boast about.
