The Sell-Out Finale of The Bankrupt Bride as Online Charity Auction Opens.     

The Sell-Out Finale of The Bankrupt Bride as Online Charity Auction Opens. Last weekend Theatr na n’Óg’s, The Bankrupt Bride, drew to a close with three sell out nights at Theatr Clwyd. The final night saw the launch of a ten-day online auction of donated Wedding Dresses.

The tour has been great success for Theatr na n’Óg with record audience numbers in venue’s across Wales and London for the company. They sold out on several nights including Swansea, Cardiff and Mold. The success of the show has been a reflection of the commitment to developing high quality new work in Wales that runs through the core of Theatr na n’Óg.

The play is a new Musical Comedy written by Kath Chandler, with music by renowned composer Dyfan Jones and performed live on stage by his three-piece band The Wedding Singers. The brilliant cast include the best of Welsh Talent as well as West End performers.

“This quirky, offbeat musical comedy is an absolute cracker.”
Graham Williams, The Evening Post.

“The performance of Carys a masterly construction.”
Adam Somerset, Theatre-Wales wesbite.

Vivien Parry’s performance as Maureen is described as “A role seized with relish and played deliciously, and maliciously, for all it is worth”. With great performances, a beautifully detailed set and brilliant costumes this production is the most successful tour yet, from Neath based, Theatr na n’Óg.

Alongside the tour they have been running a unique fundraising event for Cancer Research UK. Audiences have been donating Wedding Dresses from all over the UK to the show, which after appearing as part of the set are to be auctioned off…starting this Saturday!

The dresses are available on E-Bay from Saturday 21st and will last for ten days, until the 1st December. With 22 dresses from across the country, including three Stewart Parvin designer dresses worth up to £2000, this is a great chance to get the perfect dress for the perfect price.
