Ari is not your usual donkey; she was raised in a cosy home by a kind old lady. Now living in a donkey farm somewhere in West Wales, she yearns for a life once more among humans.

After being bought by a new owner, an unexpected friendship grows between her and an unruly, rebellious donkey, and Ari is suddenly aware of her captivity.

Faced with a chance to escape, will Ari choose freedom beyond the open gate? Or will years of servitude and the comfort allowed to her by her oppressors hold her back?

Directed by Steffan Donnelly, with live music, this new production - brimming with humour, satire and song – will charm and provoke audiences this summer.

This is a Welsh language production. In each performance, Sibrwd – Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s language access app – will be available to guide the audience through the story, whatever their level of fluency in Welsh. By means of a voice in the ear, the app conveys in English what is being said on the stage, and is available for the audience to use on their smart phones.

Performance starts 8.30pm

Age guidance: 13+

Preview performance: £10 tickets on Monday 9 August 2021
