8 June – 7 July, 2016
From Montgomeryshire to London and then to America, very little prevented Nansi from venturing, as she charmed her audiences with her talent and unforgettable presence.
In the 1920s, with Nansi at the pinnacle of her career, she’s at a crossroads. Is there room in her life for another love – a love other than for the harp?
Today, the legends that surround her colourful life are as alive as ever. Here was a woman ready to take on the world – one who didn’t give a hoot for convention.
A new play by Angharad Price that tells the story, to the sound of the harp, of Nansi Richards’s enchanting personality.
