Enfys by Melangell Dolma
A BBC Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru production
Do you remember Nick’s story, who was on a journey to learn Welsh during the first lockdown in 2020? Do you remember his brave question to his tutor, Enfys? Want to know what happened next between the two?
Following the success of the digital play Enfys by Melangell Dolma, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and BBC Cymru Fyw are delighted to announce that the partnership is continuing, with Enfys having been developed into a digital series of four short plays.
In the original episode that was broadcast online in June 2020, the virtual audience had an opportunity to meet Nick, one of the characters. In common with many people who were furloughed at the time, Nick decided to learn Welsh by attending online classes with his tutor, Enfys.
In the three new episodes we see his relationship with Enfys developing, with several awkward and amusing moments along the way!
The story continues during Radio Cymru’s Celebrating Learning Welsh Week
Catch the next three episodes on BBC Cymru Fyw, on BBC Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s Facebook pages during Radio Cymru’s Celebrating Learning Welsh Week, which is being held between 10–15 October 2021.
The Enfys series will be available in Welsh, and in Welsh with both Welsh and English captions. A British Sign Language version will also be available on Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s YouTube channel.
