The Arwel Gruffudd Years

Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru

Guide to Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru , Theatre of Wales , September 30, 2021
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru by Guide to Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru Continuity matters; organisations need stability. The optimum time-span for a period of leadership is between eight and twelve years.

There is thus a wisdom to Arwel Gruffydd setting the end of his tenure as Artistic Director for May 2022. The last decade has seen Welsh-language theatre extend itself both thematically and formally. For many of the high-spots he was also director.

Media is disaggregated in Wales and the work took place beyond the capital. With coverage inconsistent, the company is best represented in the writing of critic Lowri Haf Cooke.
