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+

Illyria: Much Ado About Nothing (18.8.21)

Illyria: Much Ado About Nothing (18.8.21)

Claudio loves Hero, and Benedick hates Beatrice. This is just as well, because Hero loves Claudio and Beatrice hates Benedick. Everyone laughs when Don Pedro plays a trick on Benedick and Beatrice, letting each think that they are secretly loved by the other. But it is no laughing matter when Don John plays a trick on Claudio and Hero, deceiving Claudio into thinking that Hero is not faithful to him. Murderous rage is unleashed, and death can be the only solution... Or can it? Perhaps one last trick may resurrect the innocent dead, restore broken relationships - and even create an unlikely union of Benedick and Beatrice!
