The latest theatre, dance and performance news

Theatre for Change at Aberystwyth Arts Centre     

A new series of theatre performances which bring to the stage stories about the challenges facing all of us at the beginning of the 21st century. The productions will create debate about global, political and ethical concerns of importance today - from issues of war ethics, justice and truth to religion, and political spin.
