Original new theatre with Welsh folk song premieres at the Wales Millennium Centre next week



A brand new play, directed by National Theatre Wales' emerging director, Rachael Boulton, and co-produced by the Wales Millennium Centre, will premiere in the Centre's Weston Studio next week.

The play is inspired by the true story of Troedrhiwgwair, near Tredegar, where villagers fought their council for the right to stay on their mountain, after being told that the mountain was likely to collapse at any minute.

"We are telling a story that's intrinsically Welsh, but using modern theatre styles and methods typically found in Europe," said Rachael Boulton, director of Fragments - the ensemble who bring the drama to life with physical theatre and emotional folk song.

The Good Earth has been developed as part of Wales Millennium Centre's Incubator project and is supported by RCT Cultural Services and Arts Council Wales. The performance caps off the Weston Studio's Spring season and will be showing for two nights only. The company greatly encourage audience feedback on the piece to help shape its development before the start of its tour in early 2015.

The Good Earth shows on the 16th and 17th of April, tickets are £7 from 029 2063 6464 or visit www.wmc.org.uk
