Fienna by Siôn Eirian
Following the unmitigated success of Garw (2015) and Yfory (2017) we have commissioned the award-winning playwright, Siôn Eirian, to write the third of his political plays for the company. Fienna will deal with the themes of race, frontiers, and how people and countries protect and thrust their identity on others.
“How has Europe dealt with ‘foreigners’? The central theme being bargaining through using status and sexuality. These are the basic instincts of the human animal. Belonging, power and sexuality.”
(Siôn Eirian, Ionawr 2019)
The play is a triptych of sorts, spanning centuries, the first part located in the Vienna of the 1700s, the second in the 1930s and the third in the Vienna of today.
Cast include : Gwenllian Higginson, Caryl Morgan…….
