Adar Papur

by Gareth Evans Jones

Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru in partnership with the National Eisteddfod of Wales with the support of Gwenlyn Parry’s Literary Estate

Pregnant, single, and in a dead-end job, Sara has had enough. Iwan desperately tries to maintain his own safe little world, whilst Ruth is busy in her garden as life passes her by.

But when the three worlds collide, Sara, Iwan and Ruth must suddenly face the truth.

This is a new, hopeful play by Gareth Evans Jones about loss, fragile mental health and unexpected friendships – the prize-winning play in the Drama Medal competition at the 2019 Conwy County National Eisteddfod.

This project is part of Creu Ar-lein, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s new programme in response to the coronavirus emergency and the challenge of creating original dramatic work during lockdown.
