A Working Class Tale of Life, Labour & Love.

Aneurin Bevan and Jennie Lee were comrades and flatmates who together fought and preached for socialism as they saw it; he the Tredegar firebrand on the Labour backbenches, she the miner’s daughter from Fife who became a Socialist MP before she was old enough to vote.[/br]

As a theatre in lockdown, we have lost our ability to generate income, yet the bills still come in. To ease this situation, we have started a fundraising appeal called the Virtual Audience Appeal. Simply put a £2 donation will represent one ticket, £10 will represent five tickets. We set an initial target of £1,000 to represent 500 tickets.

You can find our JustGiving page for donations can be on this link https://bit.ly/2zYspmfIf you want more information about the appeal you can read a report on Wrexham.com https://bit.ly/389JRAA The reaction of the public has been amazing and the £1,000 target was hit in a couple days. So in the tradition of the theatre, sell out productions get another date. So we are continuing to the target date of the 20th June with the hope of hitting £2,000 or even more.

We have been in talks with Theatr Na Nóg. They are one of the regular theatre companies that visit the Stiwt to put on productions. In 2017 they videoed their production of Nye and Jennie a play about Nye bevan and the NHS.

As a Thank You to our supporters for hitting the £1,000, we are, in conjunction with THeatre Na Nóg making this available on Sunday July 5th to mark the Anniversary of the NHS. The play will be streamed online via YouTube. You can register for a free ticket via the Stiwt boxoffice link below
