Eye of the Storm

Wales Theatre Awards 2O18

A new musical play which will seize your heart and capture your mind. With original songs written by Grammy Award Winner Amy Wadge (Thinking Out Loud with Ed Sheeran) we follow the story of Emmie who is torn between following her dreams of being a scientist and caring for her mother.

Set in the Welsh valleys to a country folk sound track, Emmie must decide between pursuing her passion for science and fascination with tornados, and her duty as a young carer devoted to her mother. With a bursary to study in America up for grabs Emmie must fight to keep her place on her course and win the STEM competition with her invention for renewable energy.

This inspiring story features a live band on stage made up of a cast of 8 talented actor musicians. A theatrical event of courage, determination and compassion, guaranteed to enthrall and inspire young people and their families.

Amy Wadge is one of today's most in-demand songwriters, having written with Kylie Minogue, Janelle Monae, Ella Henderson, Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran.
