Revolution is in the air and a city burns. A baby is abandoned in the chaos.
A young woman risks everything to save the child. With the country torn apart by war and soldiers hot on their heels, she resolves to protect him at all costs. But in a corrupt world, is love enough?
For the first time, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru takes on Bertolt Brecht in a new Welsh-language adaptation by Mererid Hopwood with original music performed live by Gwenno. Boldly staged, this twentieth-century classic bursts with music, dark humour and larger-than-life characters; an epic story of doing the right thing when the world goes wrong.
