Shirley Valentine By Willy Russell

A new Welsh language translation by Manon Eames

Directed by Geinor Styles Design by Jacob Hughes Lighting Design by Cara Hood

Starring Shelley Rees

The hit comedy by the writer of Blood Brothers and Educating Rita is back. And this time it’s in Welsh. Merthyr in the 90s: Cool Cymru has landed and for the youngsters life has never been so good; it’s Stereophonics, Catatonia and alcopops all the way for them. Not for our Shirl. Shirley’s a girl who thinks her best days might be behind her, the years of drudgery and chips and egg have taken their toll. But Shirley’s about to take a leap into the unknown that will rock her world. Join her as she leaves her home for a fun-filled fortnight in Greece that will change her life forever. Starring Shelley Rees (BBC Radio Cymru, Pobol Y Cwm), Shirley Valentine is the life-enhancing, feelgood comedy that we all need right now. Suitable for learners, fluent Welsh speakers and anyone in between. Bring yourself, bring your friends, but above all bring your sense of humour and join Shirley Valentine on the holiday of a lifetime.

Y Consortiwm Cymraeg

A new collaboration, Y Consortiwm Cymraeg has been established by the award-winning Theatr na nÓg, Awen Cultural Trust, Theatr Soar and The Welfare Ystradgynlais to present high-quality accessible Welsh language theatre. Y Consortiwm Cymraeg also aims to produce a programme of participation for communities to improve their language skills and also engage in arts and culture on their doorstep. Together, we have joined forces to rekindle the vitality and value of live theatre venues to our communities. Y Consortiwm’s wheels were already in motion pre the COVID pandemic, but as cultural centres locked down, we realised that the need for these creative hubs was even greater – to help safeguard the future of Welsh language in the valleys, and to support thriving communities beyond the Covid Pandemic.
