Wyneb Dros Dro
1:53pm Monday 7th October 2013 in What's on
The 3D Theatre Company will bring their original Welsh language play Wyneb Dros Dro toTheatr Mwldan, Cardigan, on October 24, 7.30pm.
Cardiff based 3D Theatre Company will be embarking on its first national tour of Wales to celebrate its 10th birthday.
This darkly comic play, written by Glenn Jones, delves into the heart of family dysfunction at one of the most stressful times of year – Christmas.
Wyneb Dros Dro was initially developed after the company were accepted to take part in Wales Millennium Centre’s Incubator project back in 2011. Following favourable feed-back the company have been working to develop the piece. Supported by the Arts Council of Wales and Wales Millennium Centre, the play centres around a newly divorced matriarchal mother with a surprising spring to her step, all thanks to the new young man in her life – and her son and daughter-in-law are about to meet him over the Christmas turkey. Aimed at ages 14+, Wyneb Dros Dro offers the perfect remedy for a cold autumn’s evening and suitable for welsh learners too.
This is a debut outing, not only the play, but for the author himself who has worked alongside the company for the past five years as an actor.
Glenn Jones said: “I’m firmly part of the 3D family now. I’ve always loved their ethos of providing a platform for artists in Wales to showcase their abilities, and now I’m experiencing it first-hand.” 3D, which stands for Tair Dynes (three women), have now been on the theatre scene for 10 years, moving straight from University in Aberystwyth to Cardiff for the sole purpose of establishing the company.
Hannah Wynn Jones, Producer and one of the company’s founders, said:“We’re immensely proud of the work we’ve achieved to date, and what better way to celebrate our 10th birthday than to take our work out to Wales.”
