The Big Interview | NTW’s John McGrath

On December 31st 2015, John McGrath, artistic director and co-founder of National Theatre Wales, steps down from the post after seven years at the forefront of what many regard as the first age of a new theatrical tradition in the country. In this exclusive interview for the FMIC podcast, McGrath talks openly about the early days of NTW, about the vision for the type of national theatre the company would be, the obstacles and triumphs along the way, and the qualified hope he has for a vibrant future for Wales’ creative figures.


FMIC is hosted by Gary Raymond and Gray Taylor, edited by Dani Thomas, and produced by Cerith Mathias.
