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.

Aneurin has been running away from his past, but – thanks to Grindr  – he unexpectedly finds love. When he and Dan decide to adopt, it seems their world is complete. But as he adjusts to being a dad and tries to move on from his reckless past, Aneurin is forced to confront his demons. 

A decade on from the trail-blazing and award-winning Llwyth, Aneurin, Rhys, Gareth and Dada are back in this witty and compelling new play by Daf James. Taking an irreverent look at love, family and friendship, Tylwyth is a provocative commentary on contemporary Welsh life.
