The Wolf Tattoo
7:45pm, 3 - 4 July / Gorffennaf
 Company of Sirens catapults its audience into a cacophony of feral adolescence angst with award winning playwright Lucy Gough’s brilliant new play The Wolf Tattoo which will be touring to Aberystwyth Arts Centre on 3-4 July.

The Wolf Tattoo transports us to a dystopian future where we find Graf and Rose who are seventeen and in love. She is pregnant and he is part of a gang that pack at night out on the concrete wasteland, dressed in real wolf skins.

Language and morals are breaking down and survival is a struggle.

'If I walk out of here without my skin on. If I walk out of here without belonging to a pack I am just dead meat. '.

The Wolf Tattoo is a portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of love set against a background of a human jungle. Company of Sirens welcome a young cast of exceptional performers Gwydion Rhys (Graf) Sarran Morgan (Rose) Non Haf (Ash) Jarrad Ellis Thomas (Shenk) and John Rowley of goodcopbadcop, Forced Entertainment and Brith Gof.
