LLANELLI'S WAR TIME SECRET REVEALED IN NEW PLAY     

By 1940 the R.A.F. had won the Battle of Britain – just. However, by the end of
1941 a new German fighter –The Butcher Bird – had appeared. This aircraft
was superior to anything available to the R.A.F. Once again, the tide of war
started to turn against Britain. The Butcher Bird was invincible. Attempts by
the R.A.F. to shoot it down led to disastrous losses in aircraft and pilots – by
summer 1942 the R.A.F. was losing 100 pilots a month. Something had to be
done.

The audience will discover from formerly classified events how a top-secret
German plane became part of Welsh history. The performances will also
coincide with the 60th anniversary of D-Day.

Robert Pleasance, the co-founder of Prop-Wash Theatre said "We hope this
play will give people a chance to begin to see the many hidden stories and
heroes we have in Wales”. Mr. Pleasance has exhibited both plays and films
in Chapter as well as being awarded 2 Golden Pixil awards in 2003.
