Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits

PowderHouse in association with Sherman Theatre and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru


If I can shoot rabbits, I can shoot fascists.

Leaving home in the middle of the night, an impassioned young man travels to Spain to fight for his beliefs. Untrained, untested and totally unprepared, he faces a radical choice between idealism and action. Would you risk everything for democracy?

Live music and striking imagery blend with Welsh, English, Spanish and Basque to explore the relationship between Wales and Europe in a time of crisis.


PowderHouse present the world premiere of their first production as company in residence at Sherman Theatre, in association with Sherman Theatre and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.
