Two clowns shoot the breeze, drinking bourbon and playing cards. While hunting the illusive nine of diamonds, they casually dissect capitalism, sea-lions, western culture, fishing, genocide, you know... stuff like that.
Their window on the world is one of menace, hilarity, disappointment and improbability, all delivered with a magnificent, high-octane comic brio. Anarchic and surreal, this delightful and confusing satire surprises and provokes in spades... or the nine of diamonds...

Written by Owen Thomas
Directed by Gareth John Bale
Starring Simon Nehan as Carwyn James
Carwyn is a brand-new play about the life of Carwyn James. Written by Owen Thomas, the award-winning writer of hit Torch Theatre production ‘Grav’, the play will explore the life of a man who made an incredible, indelible impact on his homeland.
A man who adored sport, culture, politics, and Wales, Carwyn James had a career that comprised everything from teaching to broadcasting to coaching to espionage. To this day he remains the only Coach to mastermind a series victory for the British Lions against the All Blacks. Carwyn will attempt to unravel the enigma of a multi-layered man. A man ahead of his time. A man who was alone in a crowd. A man uncomfortable in his own skin.
Directed by Gareth John Bale (the star of ‘Grav’) and starring Simon Nehan as Carwyn James, this play will look at the dramatic life of a Welsh cultural icon who left the field far too soon.

Suffragist, industrialist, philanthropist;
Amy Dillwyn was a cigar-smoking, adventure-seeking, uncompromising change-maker.
A trailblazing radical ahead of her time. A woman who became a legend in her own lifetime.
This is her story, adapted from her own words as found in her diaries and novels.
Presented at Queen Victoria’s court as a daughter of a radical Swansea MP and friend of the Prince of Wales, Amy was destined for a life as a wife and mother, living on one of the rich estates of South Wales. Amy had other ideas. A best-selling novelist, pioneering industrialist and campaigner for the rights of women and social justice; her ground-breaking public life was only matched in passion by the desires of her private life.
Created, written and devised by Derek Cobley and Sonia Beck, the show will feature Sonia Beck as the inimitable Amy.
The costumes have been designed and made by Ari Bosch (www.aribosch.com) a recent graduate of the Royal Welsh College. It is designed by Derek Cobley, with sound design by Tony Davies of South Wales Audio, and we have benefited from the invaluable help of academic Kirsti Bohata.
This piece is a co-production with The Welfare Ystradgynlais and has been made possible due to a Welsh Government and Arts Council Wales Covid Recovery Grant.
by Fabrice Melquiot, adapted and translated by Daf James. Concept and Direction by Mathilde Lopez
