The Apothecary's Story     

The Apothecary's Story A young single mother caught up in extraordinary events and in the hands of the police. She is deeply implicated in the deaths of the Capulet girl and the Montague boy. As the inquiry unfolds we learn of the world that is Verona, her place and the place of young people within it and the story she was told by the desperate young man who came through her door that evening.

The Apothecary’s Story is a full day, participatory Theatre in Education programme. It comprises an intense and dynamic performance woven through with a range of drama conventions that will allow the students to explore the relationship between Shakespeare’s play and the situation and concerns of young people struggling to live and grow today. The programme is accompanied by high quality resource materials newly commissioned by the Company.

The Apothecary’s Story is an insightful window on a beautiful play and a demanding, active and collective exploration of life now.

Mam sengl, ifanc, wedi’ dal ym magl cyfres o ddigwyddiadau neilltuol a bellach dan oruchwyliaeth yr heddlu. Mae hi wedi’ chysylltu â marwolaeth merch y Teulu Capulet a bachgen y Teulu Montague. Wrth i’r ymchwiliad fynd rhagddo rydym yn dysgu am fyd Verona, safle’r fam sengl a phobl ifanc o fewn y byd hwnnw a’r stori glywodd yr Apothecari gan y dyn ifanc mewn cyfyng gyngor, gurodd ar ei drws y noson honno.

Rhaglen ddiwrnod yw The Apothecary’s Story. Cyfuniad o berfformiad dwys a deinamig, wedi’ blethu gyda confensiynau drama i alluogi’r cyfranogwyr i archwilio’r berthynas rhwng drama Shakespeare â phryderon a sefyllfa pobl ifanc sy’n ymdrechu i fyw a thyfu yn y byd sydd ohoni. Yn gysylltiedig â’r rhaglen mae deunyddiau adnoddau o safon wedi’ comisiynu gan y Cwmni.

Dyma raglen sy’n treiddio ymhellach i glasur o ddrama tra’n cysylltu gyda heddiw ein pobl ifanc.
