Wales welcomes Titrwm and Tatwrm
This May, the first Welsh adaptation of an award winning children’s drama will be touring Wales.
Andy Manley’s UK Theatre Award winning production White, originally produced by Catherine Wheels Theatre Company in Scotland, has been translated into Welsh by theatre company Cwmni’r Frân Wen.
In Gwyn, actors Bryn Fôn and Rhodri Sion will introduce children to the enchanting and beautiful white world of Titrwm and Tatrwm. The friends lead a simple and organised life and work diligently to ensure that their world remains gleaming and white. But, how will they react when they see colour for the very first time?
“White is a magical piece of theatre that warms the heart,” said Iola Ynyr, Artistic Director of show producers Cwmni'r Frân Wen.
“I saw the production for the first time in the Children and Young People’s Theatre Conference in Copenhagen in 2011. I was mesmerized by its emotional depth, I can still recall the experience vividly.”
Actor Rhodri Sion, who plays Titrwm, finds the tale of two friends endearing: “It’s a magical, sweet and thrilling tale that children of all ages will enjoy – even us older ones!
“Performing to an audience this young is a new challenge for me, but as a father to two girls under 4 I hope that I have some idea of how to communicate with them.”
The original drama proved a big success in theatres around Europe, winning the Award for Best Show for Children and Young People in UK Theatre Awards 2011. 
Although Gwyn is a Welsh language drama, a simple language resource will be available for learners.
* Gwyn, Touring Wales 30 May - 3 July, 2014.
