An invitation for the residents of Anglesey: come and enjoy Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s latest production at Galeri Caernarfon!
- A special offer for residents of Anglesey – a coach, completely free of charge, has been arranged to take residents of Anglesey to Galeri Caernarfon, for the opening night of Hollti’s national tour.
- A new play based on plans for a new atomic power station on the island, and the response of the local community.
Hollti by Manon Wyn Williams
“It’s not us who have a hold over the land, it’s the land that has a hold over us.”
Plans are afoot to build a new nuclear power station on Anglesey. But what effect will Wylfa Newydd have on its nearest neighbours, as the capitalist machine attempts to swallow up a farm that has remained in the same family for generations?
Hollti is a new, bold verbatim play about the right of our communities to decide their own future. With a script created from interviews with local residents, a cast of familiar faces bring to life the arguments for and against the development.
For the opening night of Hollti’s national tour, a coach will be available – completely free of charge – starting from the car park of Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern at 18:15, calling at Llangefni Post Office at 18:30 and the Park and Ride car park at Llanfair P.G at 18:40 before travelling on to Galeri Caernarfon, returning after the show. The bus will be leaving promptly, so please ensure you allow plenty of time to arrive on time. Tickets for the show [£12–£10] and seats on the coach can be purchased by phoning the ticket office at Galeri on 01286 685 222.
