College days are the best of your life, or so they say.

Indeed, Catrin and Helen live their lives to the full whilst studying. Helen has flying lessons whilst Catrin develops a taste for speed dating. When another student, Catrin’s cousin Lowri, comes to live with them, surely there are even more fun times on the horizon?

This is not the case, however, as Lowri has a different outlook on life. And more importantly she harbours a secret that will eventually shatter all three of the women’s lives...

Dyddiau coleg, dyddiau gorau eich bywyd, meddai nhw.

Yn wir, mae Catrin a Helen yn mwynhau bywyd i'r eithaf tra'n y coleg. Mae Helen yn cael gwersi hedfan, tra bod Catrin wedi cael blas ar frys-ddetio. Pan ddaw Lowri, myfyrwraig arall sy'n gyfnither i Catrin, i fyw gyda nhw does bosib bod yna hyd yn oed fwy o hwyl ar y gorwel?

I'r gwrthwyneb, oherwydd mae gan Lowri olwg hollol wahanol ar fywyd. Ac yn bwysicach mae ganddi gyfrinach fydd yn chwalu bywydau'r tair ohonynt yn ddeilchion...


UNCLE VANYA by Anton Chekhov.

Matinee – Saturday 12th February @ 2.30pm

Uncle Vanya is the tale of two obsessive love affairs that lead nowhere and a flirtation that brings disaster. By turns comic, tragic, romantic, and wistful, Chekhov’s masterpiece is an unforgettable study of unfulfilled dreams and unrequited love.

Written towards the end of the 1890s, it casts a diamond-hard glance towards our century.

Matthew Shepard's brutal murder focused national attention as no incident had before on homophobia and related hate crimes.

The two killers are young men. This is a town struggling to understand how it could have raised such hateful, bigoted, violent children. Why did the perpetrators do it? Who was at fault? Why did it happen in Laramie? There is no single answer.

The Laramie Project is an examination of American values in our current age and their relationship to religion, class, economics, education and attitudes to alternative lifestyles.

"Marriage is as bane to love as lending money is to friendship"
Three sisters, dissatisfied with their destinies, wander disguised through the town of Naples at carnival time in search of tolerable husbands. Virtue and reputation are threatened when they encounter three Englishmen intent on enjoying the greater licence of the carnival.

Little girls are supposed to look forward to this moment all their life. But now it’s here, is it for love or opportunity? And the gunfire in the distance – is it a celebration or warning?

A tale of moral dilemmas, military exploits and mistaken identity.

Based on the play by George S Kaufman and Moss Hart.
