Wendy York From: Ontario, Canada Occupation: Administrative director for Theatr Iolo What was the last movie you watched? I have been watching lots of French films to learn to communicate in French. The last movie I watched was Le Plaisir, a series of stories by Guy de Maupassant. It's a fantastic old black and white film. Which stage production did you last see? Our own show, The Ugly Truth, at Rumney High School in Cardiff.

When was the last time you visited an art gallery? I was in the Tate Modern in London last week. I didn't have much time, but managed to take in a couple of Miros.

What was the last gig you went to? Session A9. It's a group from Scotland with four fiddles backed up by a rhythm section that give it an amazing driving energy. Extraordinary fiddling too.

What's playing on your iPod? I can hear someone else's iPhone playing Brian Eno.

Which book are you currently reading? Again, in an attempt to improve my French, I am reading Comment je suis devenu stupide by Mark Page. For me, it's challenging but I'm enjoying it.

What are you planning to do next? We are planning our guest night for The Ugly Truth created by Sarah Argent and Gary Owen with performers Hannah McPake and Shekira Johnson. It's currently entertaining teenagers in high schools throughout Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

One of the few public performances is at Chapter Arts Centre on February 24 at 7.30pm.
