Mrs Reynolds a’r Cena Bach

by Gary Owen
Welsh Translation by Meic Povey of Mrs Reynolds and the Ruffian
Director: Ffion Hâf
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru in partnership with Cwmni’r Frân Wen and Galeri Caernarfon
When Mrs Reynolds’ lovingly tended garden is vandalised. Jay, the guilty and troubled youth is sent back by the authorities to help her fix it.
Two generations locked in battle; little old Mrs Reynolds with her traditional values and “nice little life” vs. the textbook hoodie demanding respect but offering little in return. Just as they think they have the measure of each other, something is revealed and they are both shocked by what they find out.
This contemporary play by one of Wales’ most audacious playwrights – the award-winning Gary Owen – explores human nature and friendship alongside the social climate of modern Wales, giving a warm, funny and insightful glimpse into the way we live now.
Age Guidance: 12+
