We co-produced Only the Brave with Soho Theatre, Daniel Sparrow Productions and Birdsong Productions with a cast of Welsh musical stars led by Caroline Sheen and David Thaxton.
Only the Brave, recounts the raw courage and determination of those who fought and felt the physical and emotional pain of the Second World War.
It tells the story of a group of brave soldiers embarking on a dangerous mission that holds the key to the success of the D-Day Landings.
This rousing and original musical interweaves the soldier’s stories with that of their families and loved ones.
Based on true events, Only The Brave evokes the camaraderie and bravery of the second world war generation.
Following its first ever staging at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Only The Brave’s long-awaited fully staged version premiered at the Donald Gordon Theatre in March 2016.
Written by Rachel Wagstaff, with music by Cardiff born composer Matthew Brind and directed by Steve Marmion, and the Centre’s first home-grown musical opened to rave reviews.
