LATEST NEWS

In conjunction with Swansea Arts and Education, The Swansea Festival and The Welfare in Ystradgynlais, we are working on a new theatre piece aimed at Key Stage Two pupils charting the history of the famous Bells of Santiago.

Our co-production with the Pontardawe Arts Centre has been awarded grants by Ty Cerdd and Arts Council Wales. We open on November the 9th and tour until December 2nd 2017.

We also offer theatre skills’ workshops as an adjunct to touring productions, usually – but not exclusively – based around the text we are performing. Over the last few years we have performed works by Noel Coward, Dylan Thomas, Richard Burton, Daniel Jones, Shakespeare and several new plays.

 

In 2016 we premiered a stage adaptation of Malcolm Pryce’s cult comedy noir classic Aberystwyth Mon Amour. An affectionate pastiche of the film noir detective genre, set in an Aberystwyth controlled by a Druid Mafia this will be a world premiere and is set to be an engrossing and entertaining theatrical treat. The show toured from September and further details can be found on this site.

This winter we also toured Willy Russell’s classic comedy drama Shirley Valentine. This one -woman tour-de-force, which went on to be a much loved film, toured nationally to packed houses and critical acclaim.

Take a look around and should you wish to book one of our shows or workshops or if you  just want to get in touch and find out more, please go to our Contacts page.

See below the brand new trailer for our autumn touring production Hard Times. Enjoy!
