Tylwyth

Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Sherman Theatre are proud to announce that Tylwyth will be returning to the stage this autumn. Tylwyth, by award-winning playwright Daf James, will open at Sherman Theatre before touring to theatres across Wales.

Following a world premiere at Sherman Theatre in March 2020, the national tour was cancelled due to the COVID crisis. Now, two years on, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Sherman Theatre are delighted to be working together once again to bring this standout production and life-affirming play back to audiences across Wales.

Tylwyth is witty and compelling. It reunites the much-loved characters of the award-winning Llwyth, a decade on from that Welsh-language theatrical phenomenon. Taking an irreverent look at love, family and friendship, it is a challenging, sharp-witted commentary on contemporary Welsh life, following a group of gay friends living in Cardiff.

This 2022 staging of Tylwyth sees the return of nearly all its 2020 cast, including Simon Watts (who played Gethin in S4C’s long-running Pobol y Cwm, and who appeared most recently in Yr Amgueddfa); Danny Grehan (whose stage career has included numerous productions by the late Michael Bogdanov and his Wales Theatre Company), and Michael Humphreys (who has featured in productions by theatre companies such as Tangled Feet, Motherlode, Black Rat and National Theatre Wales). Simon, Danny and Michael also featured in the original production of Llwyth back in 2010. Joining them once more will be Arwel Davies (who currently plays Eifion in Pobol y Cwm).
