Hen Bobl Mewn Ceir First presented in 2006
by Sgript Cymru

synopsis:
(Premiering at The Sherman Theatre, Cardiff in November 2006 and touring Wales from 8th November – 2nd December)


Roy, a 59-year-old hospice nurse, living with an infirm, alcoholic mother is in denial about his sexuality. Ceri, a 39-year-old auxiliary is trapped in a sexless marriage. When they meet the flame of a possible relationship flickers into life, but can it be sustained, or are they both too emotionally damaged to make it work?

With dark humour and pathos, we follow Roy and Ceri’s epic attempt to turn the clock back, to recapture the magic of long-forgotten youth. And when all is said and done, is not the reassuring hand of friendship a thousand times more precious than a quick grope in the dark?


Alun Ap Brinley will play the character of Roy, the eccentric and neurotic manager of the care home and Eiry Hughes will play the character of Ceri, the bored housewife trapped in a life of guilt due to a drunken act of rage

Life of Ryan...and Ronnie First presented in 2005
by Sgript Cymru

synopsis:
Ryan and Ronnie: legends, folk heroes and superstars. Wasn’t seventies Wales just great!

Ryan Davies was one of the most naturally talented entertainers we’d ever seen – singer, actor, musician, comedian and entertainment pioneer. Surely, untold fame and fortune was beckoning in America?
And Ronnie... Well, who was Ronnie Williams? Classically trained actor, continuity announcer, writer and...hotelier?

Meic Povey’s new play cuts straight to the heart of the Ryan and Ronnie magic.

Ladies and Gentlemen, direct from the Angel Inn, Glanamman and straight to Las Vegas and Tinseltown, put your hands together for the Life of Ryan... and Ronnie!

Indian Country First presented in 2003
by Sgript Cymru

synopsis:
Indian Country is set against the background of the filming of The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, which starred Ingrid Bergman, and in which the mountains of Snowdonia doubled for China. A widowed sheep farmer and her young son meet a charismatic American and their lives are changed forever. Meic Povey is well known to Welsh-speaking audiences and is one of our most successful and acclaimed playwrights.
