Theatr na ng expanding and demanding Autumn programme. Theatr na n’Óg continue to impress with their imagination and adaptability. Currently they have two shows running with a third opening this week.
Halt! Who Goes There?, their sell out children’s show about escaped prisoners from WWII and The Bankrupt Bride, their popular new Musical Comedy currently touring Wales and to London, and from the 30th of October, their third autumn show, You Should Ask Wallace, opening at the National Museum in Cardiff.

This site specific piece previously showed at The National Botanical Gardens to the delight of both audience and critics. The one-man show starring Ioan Hefin, is an insightful interactive performance based around Alfred Russel Wallace, the little known co-inventor of the theory of Natural Selection. Performed at the National Museum, Cardiff from the 30th to the 5th November, the play follows Wallace’s journey of evolutionary discovery against a backdrop of impressive museum displays, in this charming and captivating show.

The Bankrupt Bride is a brand new musical comedy, from renowned composer Dyfan Jones and directed by Theatr na n’Ógs Artistic Director Geinor Styles. The show is currently touring Wales and then to London for a week. With live music, a great cast and a lot of fun, this is a great night out whether you are single married or somewhere in between. After opening to a sell out crowd at Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea the show has gone from strength to strength.

“A tremendously enjoyable piece of theatre, with great one-liners and lashings of cynical, post credit crunch humour.”
Graham Williams, The Evening Post.

“Fresh and distinctive, a tribute to the WMC's Incubator and a feast of accomplished acting. In Claire, Carys Gwilym has a role to warm the heart as these Autumn nights turn cold.”
Adam Somerset.

On top of all this Theatr na n’Óg continue to entertain and educate with their production of Halt! Who Goes There?, the longest running show for children in Wales, at The Dylan Thomas Theatre in Swansea. Based around the true events of WWII’s largest German POW escape from Camp 198, in Bridgend, it tells the story of four children’s adventure recapturing them. This moving and heartfelt play for year 7’s has been another sell out success for Theatr na n’Óg, showing to over 5000 children from over 100 different schools. It opened on the 8th of September and runs to the 3rd December.

This exciting company is always exploring new possibilities and partnerships, working with the communities it is rooted in, whilst also taking its productions to new venues and on new tours to explore different avenues. The versatility to produce three different shows; a touring show, a resident piece and a site-specific show, highlights the imagination and hard work of the company. The fact that all three are of an exceptionally high quality is testimony to the commitment and vision that Theatr na n’Óg invest in their shows and the company as a whole.
