LITTLE WOLF

By Simon Harris

Wednesday 22 November at 7.45pm
Tickets - £10, concessions - £8

 

When a young boy mysteriously disappears, Freddie and Rita are forced to confront the truth of their marriage.

 

Is their love too fragile for the truth? As their worlds fracture and collide, what is there worth holding on to? Little Wolf is an intense, surreal and honest exploration of a couple who find themselves facing their ultimate fear.

 

Inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s play Little Eyolf, this is a present-day retelling of a compelling classic of modern drama.

 

From award-winning writer and director Simon Harris, Little Wolf is a play that speaks to the heart of our current uncertainty – one that’s vital, raw and often blisteringly funny.

WOMAN OF FLOWERS

by SIÔN EIRIAN after SAUNDERS LEWIS in the English language

Thursday 15 February at 7.30pm

Tickets - £13, concessions - £11, students and school groups - £7

Theatr Pena return with the Company’s first co-production with Taliesin Arts Centre, a dynamic and visually rich production of a very ancienttale of betrayal and retribution. Woman of Flowers is a strikingly poetic reimagining of the Mabinogi myth of Blodeuwedd by award-winning Welsh writer Siôn Eirian in which he skilfully combines Saunders Lewis’s Welsh language verse drama of the same name with original material to create a captivating dark fantasy.

Blodeuwedd isn’t like other women. Conjured from wild flowers by the wizard Gwydion to be the perfect wife for the warrior prince Llew, nature’s wild waves surge in her blood and when the dark desires woven into her nature are awakened the consequences are bloody for all around her.

"a mesmerising mix of murder, mayhem and laugh-out-loud comedy... even has echoes of those word-play specialists the Two Ronnies." –  **** The Stage

“A laugh a minute roller-coaster of fun” - ***** Behind the Arras

LOUDER IS NOT ALWAYS CLEARER

A Mr and Mrs Clark Production

Thursday 26 & Friday 27 April at 7.45pm

Tickets - £10, concessions - £8

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son and the family.

 

‘Louder Is Not Always Clearer’ is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the showis a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

 

Mr and Mrs Clark make new and innovative performances that engage audiences.  The Clarks were short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Speech Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales In Edinburgh this year.
