Gwlad yr Asyn 16.8.21

A Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Os Nad Nawr production, in association with the National Eisteddfod of Wales, with support from Wales Millennium Centre and University of South Wales.

Gwlad yr Asyn

by Wyn Mason

Ari is not your usual donkey; she was raised in a cosy home by a kind old lady. Now living in a donkey farm somewhere in West Wales, she yearns for a life once more among humans. After being bought by a new owner, an unexpected friendship grows between her and an unruly, rebellious donkey, and Ari is suddenly aware of her captivity.

Faced with a chance to escape, will Ari choose freedom beyond the open gate? Or will years of servitude and the comfort allowed to her by her oppressors hold her back?

Directed by Steffan Donnelly, with live music, this new outdoor production - brimming with humour, satire and song – will charm and provoke audiences this summer.

Age Guidance: 13+
