It’s Party Time!
40 years ago a small gang of enthusiastic practitioners set out to give the Welsh language theatre scene a good shake-up, and Theatr Bara Caws was born. To mark this special anniversary, Gwasg Carreg Gwalch are publishing a coffee-table book collated from the Company’s archive and following extensive interviews with the hundreds of actors, writers and technicians who have worked with us over the years. We will be launching the book at the National Eisteddfod in Anglesey this August, so come join us to mark this very special occasion!
When? Friday, 11 August, 2pm
Where? Theatr Fach y Maes
– after which the celebrations will continue in Caffi’r Theatrau.
