Are you a curious person, searching for a Welsh language performance that pushes the boundaries? Then look no further...
Throughout the autumn our Performances for the Curious season returns with more Welsh language performances than ever before.
By now, the season has grown to be one of the highlights of the year, and the fact that there are five Welsh language performances being staged this year is amazing.
We’re extremely lucky to showcase successful Welsh artists here and are proud to present high standards of Welsh productions in our more intimate spaces.
As a young person, I love coming here to see all types of shows and the Welsh language is also very important to me. I’m glad that there's an opportunity to come to such a well-known theatre to see contemporary Welsh language productions being performed.
Here's what we've got in store for you in Welsh...
