Rehearsed readings of plays by local playwrights Melangell Dolma, Cai Llewelyn Evans, Gruffudd Eifion Owen and Lowri Morgan.
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s 2019 New Playwrights’ Group project culminates in a series of rehearsed readings across Wales of new plays by the new wave of Welsh-language playwrights. This is an opportunity to enjoy the fruits of 10 months of writing and development, under the guidance of Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, by some of Wales’s most exciting new Welsh-language playwrights.
Each event will include readings of new plays by two playwrights, followed by a conversation session with the playwrights, cast and directors.
