The Torch Theatre Company presents: Carwyn at Theatr Brycheiniog
Written by Owen Thomas
Directed by Gareth John Bale
Starring Simon Nehan as Carwyn James.
Carwyn is a brand-new play about the life of Carwyn James. Written by Owen Thomas, the award-winning writer of hit Torch Theatre production ‘Grav’, the play will explore the life of a man who made an incredible, indelible impact on his homeland.
A man who adored sport, culture, politics, and Wales, Carwyn James had a career that comprised everything from teaching to broadcasting to coaching to espionage. To this day he remains the only Coach to mastermind a series victory for the British Lions against the All Blacks. Carwyn will attempt to unravel the enigma of a multi-layered man. A man ahead of his time. A man who was alone in a crowd. A man uncomfortable in his own skin.
Directed by Gareth John Bale (the star of ‘Grav’) and starring Simon Nehan as Carwyn James, this play will look at the dramatic life of a Welsh cultural icon who left the field far too soon.
