Today, we are delighted to announce a programme of work for the week of the National Eisteddfod of Wales (1–9 August 2020) to celebrate the success of past winners of the Drama Medal competition, including a new, digital production of last year’s prize-winning play.

Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter: Equality and Diversity in Wales
Recent Black Lives Matter events in America – and across the world – have motivated all of us at Theatr Gen to make changes in our own lives and within our organisation. Our full statement details the steps we’re taking:
Theatr Gen Eto
As theatres across Wales are closed at the moment, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru is launching Theatr Gen Eto today to offer opportunities for audiences to enjoy some of the company’s productions on screen. By releasing content from its extensive archive, the company will share a number of its previous productions on its YouTube channel and also on the new digital platform AM
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru responds to the challenge of creating original dramatic work within a period of social distancing with Creu Ar-lein, a series of original plays or dramatic presentations to be shared on digital platforms, as well as continuing their artistic development work online.
Alongside Mentrau Iaith Cymru (Welsh Language Initiatives) we are delighted to announce today that they are working in partnership to introduce Clwb Theatr Cymru (Welsh Theatre Club) in order to offer a variety of creative opportunities and promote performance skills for children in every part of Wales over the summer.
Following our open call for applications last week, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be supporting Steffan Donnelly and Glesni Price-Jones to take part in the National Freelance Taskforce.
Alongside National Theatre Wales, we are pleased to announce commissions for two projects by Welsh artists as part of the final round of New Digital Commissions. The successful artists are: Karen Owen and Rhys Slade-Jones.
