We know... We're often "chuffed" or "thrilled" to be bringing you our news (we promise to calm down soon... Maybe...) but this is SO exciting!

Ma'n newyddion ni bob amser yn "gyffrous" neu'n "amêsing" (i ni, os ddim i'n cyfeillion a ffrindie!), ond ma hyn yn fflipin brilliant!

Saturday night saw the annual Wales Theatre Awards at Sherman Cymru, and we were excited for a great social event, a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues.

Er ein bod yn hollgyffrous fel cwmni fod Alun a Mared wedi cyrraedd y rhestr fer ar gyfer gwobrau am eu gwaith ar gynhyrchiad ein ffrindie ni The Other Room, A GOOD CLEAN HEART, roedd hi'n fwy o gyfle da i ymlacio, joio, a dala lan gyda chydweithwyr a phobol grêt o'r diwydiant.

You can only imagine how we leaped out of our seats (actually one of us was glued to his seat with his hands clasped over his mouth until he realised that he needed to get up to collect his award) when the announcement came that the BEST PLAYWRIGHT IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE 2015 was ALUN SAUNDERS!

Mewn categori eithriadol o gryf, ynghyd â thri Dramodydd hollwych, roedd Alun ar ben ei ddigon o fod wedi'i ddewis gan banel beirniaid Gwobrau Theatr Cymru, sef critics neu feirniaid theatr y wlad.

We celebrated. That's all we'll say. But it was amazing to be able to celebrate with some of the nicest people in the industry here in Wales, and especially in Cardiff.

Diolch yn FAWR i bawb sydd wedi'n cefnogi ni fel cwmni hyd yn hyn. Ry'n ni am geisio'n gore glas i gynnig gymaint - a mwy os allwn ni - o gefnogaeth ac y'n ni wedi'i dderbyn gan eraill wrth i ni ddatblygu fel cwmni ac fel artistiaid.

Our thanks to all of you who've already supported us as individuals, as NEONTOPIA, and who've supported A GOOD CLEAN HEART.

We'd love you to hop on our neon bandwagon as we develop as artists and as a company, and try our very best to encourage and support others.

LLONGYFARCHIADAU to all of the truly amazing theatre-makers shortlisted for a Wales Theatre Award. As was mentioned on the evening, it was a ridiculously competitive evening (within the categories - the people were absolutely lush!), and we honestly feel honoured to be a part of it.

Diolch bawb!!
