Theatr Gwalia Yn Cyflwyno 'Bara Bread' gan Carmen Medway-Stephens
Directed by Chris Morgan

If you like a good story you will enjoy Bara Bread, its all about returning back to story and returning back to when life was less complicated. The play has a character age range from 18 to 70 which was integral to my writing, representing strong women, who all bring something to the table. Through the kneading and the baking of the bread, they discover who they are. With splashes of truth and a pinch of magic realism we invite you to join us to 'Bake Bread Together'

Os am stori dda byddwch yn mwynhau BaraBread. Mae marched, eu hoedran o 18 hyd 70, yn dod at y ford I bobi gan ateb galwad y “Toes Mamol.” Wrth dorri’r bara maent  yn rhannu cyfrinachau,cariad, tristwch a chwerthin.
Dewch, ymunwch a ni - “Cawn Bobi Bara da’n Gilydd!” Bydd yn noson hudolus!

What will we find in Mother Dough's Kitchen.....

‘The writer creates such an earthy and honest world of a story that must be told, you will laugh, cry and you will leave the theatre wanting more’
'theatre of the hearth''

Mae Nettie as fin dathlu ei 40 oed a does ganddi ddim syniad ble I droi. Mae hi'n sefyll yng nghegin ei mam ar ei phen ei hun yn llwyr-ag eithrio lludw ei mam, llyfr llofion o ryseitiau a nodyn yn dweud 'Beth am bobi bara gyda'n gilydd'

Nettie is approaching her 40th year and doesn't know which way to turn. She finds herself standing in her mother’s kitchen alone except for her mother’s ashes and a scrap book of recipes and a note that reads 'lets bake bread together'.

It is time for Nettie to scatter her ash and create the mother dough. But does she remember how to bake bread? She hasn't eaten a carb in years.
The mother dough brings new friends into Nettie's life, Maggie the shepherdess, wild and free, Mair the Vicar, upright like a head stone but soft as the very dough. Annabel the estate agent, so well turned out and little Lara, pregnant at 16 left holding the baby.

Through Nettie's wish to find herself, these individuals all come to the table to make bread with her.

'So by inventing the white sliced bread how did that liberate us?'

'The table - our universe where the crust is broken, love is shared, tears fall, laughter rings and secrets told. This is your culinary DNA, time to
come back to your authentic self.......'

Can Nettie get her ingredients right to become the woman she is meant to be? Scatter the ash and the Magic will happen.............
