A Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru production in association with Pontio, originally presented in venues across Wales in November/December 2018.
As the NHS is now over 70 years old, we take a look behind the scenes of a busy cancer ward in a hospital in Wales today, with a script and songs created from interviews with real nurses. This new play, that toured throughout Wales November/December 2018, shines a light on nurses’ experiences — the challenges they face in their day-to-day work and the mischief, sisterhood and sense of vocation that sustains them. A heartfelt depiction of the life and work of these real-life heroes who care for us and our loved ones within a healthcare system that’s under perpetual strain.

Y Tŵr is an intimate story of love and life from the UK’s leading new opera company and the Welsh-language national theatre, based on the work of one of Wales’ most important playwrights. Exploring the extremes of emotion experienced by two lovers over the course of a lifetime together, Gwenlyn Parry’s acclaimed play is brought to new life in the form of a touching and lyrical new opera by composer Guto Puw and singer-songwriter-playwright, Gwyneth Glyn. Sung in Welsh with English surtitles.

Libreto by Gwyneth Glyn

Duration: 130m (including 20m interval)
Dawns Ysbrydion / Ghost Dance
It is 50 years since the drowning of a Welsh village to create the Tryweryn reservoir to support the expanding population of Liverpool. Taking inspiration from the Ghost Dances performed by some of the North American First Nations at the end of the nineteenth century, internationally acclaimed performer Eddie Ladd leads an all-female cast in this unrelenting dance for survival. Co-directed by Montreal choreographer Sarah Williams, with live, original electro score by Y Pencadlys.
