Theatr Felinfach looks forward to welcoming the English performance of the one-man show Carwyn on 10 October 2023.

The performance is a production presented by Bale and Thomas in association with Torch Theatre, Theatr Felinfach and RCT Theatres. As part of the cooperation the crew will be rehearsing at Theatr Felinfach and opening the show at the theatre this Autumn before going on tour throughout Wales.

“It’s a privilege to welcome Bale and Thomas to Theatr Felinfach once again as they prepare for their tour of the drama Carwyn. Carwyn James was one of Wales’ giants, as a bright and innovative rugby coach and a man who loved his land, language and country” said Dwynwen Lloyd Llywelyn, Head of Theatr Felinfach. 

The show by playwright Owen Thomas will tell the important story of Carwyn James 40 years since his death with actor Simon Nehan bringing Carwyn to life on stage. The designer for the show is Tegan Reg James and Ceri James is the lighting designer.

Gareth John Bale, director of Carwyn said: “It’s a big pleasure working alongside Theatr Felinfach on this production of Carwyn. I’ve been touring to Theatr Felinfach for over 20 years and there’s always a warm welcome there. I know everyone will work hard to ensure the performance and tour of Carwyn succeeds. Felinfach isn’t far from Rhydlewis – an area close to Carwyn’s heart. So, it makes sense that we open the production in the Theatr and area.”

Carwyn was a man who adored sport, culture and politics, a man who adored Wales. He made a particular impression on his country and the Welsh language during his life.

This play explores the life of a man who was more than a character in rugby; a teacher, broadcaster, coach, and even espionage.
