“Hyll yw’r teg, a theg yw’r hyll; Hofran yn yr aflan niwl a’r gwyll.”
Mae brenin yr Alban wedi gwobrwyo ei filwr mwyaf disglair yn hael. Ond mae bodau goruwchnaturiol wedi darogan i Macbeth anrhydedd lawer mwy. Pan fo ei wraig ddidostur yn gwirioni ar addewid o bŵer di-ben-draw, gan annog uchelgais cythreulig ei gŵr, mae ar ben arno, ac mae cynllun dieflig y ddau yn troi’n gyflafan waedlyd.
Cynhyrchiad safle-benodol Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru – yn fyw o Gastell Caerffili – o glasur Shakespeare wedi ei gyfieithu o’r newydd i’r Gymraeg gan y diweddar Gwyn Thomas.
Cast yn cynnwys Richard Lynch (Pobol y Cwm, Y Gwyll) fel Macbeth, a Ffion Dafis (Byw Celwydd, Rownd a Rownd) fel ei wraig ddi-drugaredd. Cyfarwyddwr: Arwel Gruffydd.
“... y mae pethau, Yn ddrwg ddechreuwyd, trwy ddrwg yn ymgryfhau.”

“Fair is foul and foul is fair; Hover through the fog and filthy air.”
The King of Scotland has generously rewarded his brightest warrior. But supernatural beings have predicted for Macbeth a far greater honour. When his merciless wife is captivated by the promise of infinite power, fuelling her husband’s fiendish ambition, he is doomed, and their devilish plans turn to bloody massacre.

Cast includes Richard Lynch (Pobol y Cwm, Hinterland) as Macbeth and Ffion Dafis (Byw Celwydd, Rownd a Rownd) as his merciless wife. Director: Arwel Gruffydd.

They shout and fight.
And sometimes they hide.

Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Bronte’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities.
