Mae’r gwerthwr main ei fyd Alan yn cael gorchwyl sy’n ymddangos yn amhosibl wrth iddo deithio i Sawdi-Arabia i geisio gwerthu system gynadledda hynod o fodern i frenin Arabaidd cyfoethog. Mae Tom Hanks (enillydd dau Oscar) yn serennu yn y ffars ddoniol hon am achubiaeth a chanfod gobaith yn y mannau mwyaf anhebygol.

At a country weekend houseparty at ‘The Hollow’, a reunion explodes into murder. Nearly all in attendance have a motive and most had the opportunity. It is up to the police, and the audience, to solve the crime. Llanelli’s Phoenix Theatre Group has pleasure in presenting ‘The Hollow’, another enthralling who-dun-it from the Queen of Crime. Mewn parti yng nghefn gwlad ar benwythnos yn ‘The Hollow’, mae aduniad yn ffrwydro yn llofruddiaeth. Mae gan bron pawb sy’n bresennol gymhelliad a chafodd y mwyafrif y cyfle. Gwaith yr heddlu, a’r gynulleidfa, yw datrys y drosedd. Mae Grwp ˆ Theatr Phoenix o Lanelli yn falch o gael cyfle i gyflwyno ‘The Hollow’, stori lofruddiaeth hynod afaelgar arall gan Frenhines Hanesion Troseddau.

Nid yw hi’n gwybod y gwnaiff ei meipen dyfu yn hollol ENFAWR!

Ffwrnes F: £24 Tuesday 16th May 7.30pm

This month’s headliner will be / Prif berfformiwr y mis hwn fydd Ian Boldsworth “Incessantly hilarious” – The Guardian

The nation’s favourite psychic, Sally Morgan is back and better than ever with her brand new show ‘Call Me Psychic’. Entertaining, sometimes heart-breaking, often controversial; the show celebrates her 9th year on the road. Sally says “Every night I’m on stage amazing things happen and it’s a privilege to be able to pass on messages of love and comfort”. The show is investigational and for the purpose of entertainment.

Support from / Cefnogir gan Matt Winning “With some actual jokes and delicious bits about his painfully unfunny parents who can’t see the dividing line between their son’s comedy and his real life, there was an edge and drive to Winning’s brief but inventive set” – Brian Donaldson, Chortle And other guests / A gwesteion eraill

Mae hoff seicig y genedl, Sally Morgan, yn dychwelyd â sioe newydd gwell nag erioed ‘Call Me Psychic’. Difyr, torcalonnus ar brydiau, ac yn ddadleuol yn aml; mae’r sioe yn dathlu ei 9fed blwyddyn ar daith. Dywed Sally “Bob tro y byddaf ar lwyfan, bydd pethau rhyfeddol yn digwydd, ac mae’n fraint cael cyfleu negeseuon o gariad a chysur”. Mae’r sioe yn ymchwiliol a darparu adloniant yw’r diben.

Performed by Elio Pace and his Band

Gan / By Merlin Holland a/and John O’ Connor The opening night of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’ in 1895 was the zenith of Oscar Wilde’s career. Less than 100 days later he found himself jailed, sentenced to two years hard labour for homosexuality. Using words spoken in court, feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius.

Dynamic singer/songwriter Elio Pace and his magnificent 6-piece band delivers this sensational tour to celebrate the phenomenal music of Billy Joel, featuring the massive hits, ‘Uptown Girl’, ‘My Life’, ‘Just The Way You Are’ and fan favourites ‘Scenes From An Italian Restaurant’, ‘Goodnight Saigon’ and ‘Piano Man’ and more.

Noson agoriadol orfoleddus The Importance of Being Earnest yn 1895 oedd uchafbwynt gyrfa Oscar Wilde. Ychydig wedi hynny, roedd yn y carchar, wedi ei ddedfrydu gan y Goron i lafur caled am fod yn hoyw. Ond beth a ddigwyddodd yn ystod y prawf a beth a ddywedodd Wilde? Gan ddefnyddio’r geiriau go iawn a lefarwyd yn y llys, mae Mappa Mundi yn rhoi cyfle i gynulleidfaoedd i weld yr Oscar go iawn am y tro cyntaf.

Mae’r canwr/cyfansoddwr Elio Pace a’i fand 6 rhan gwych yn cynnal y daith gyffrous hon i ddathlu cerddoriaeth ryfeddol Billy Joel, yn cynnwys y caneuon hynod boblogaidd, ‘Uptown Girl’, ‘My Life’, ‘Just The Way You Are’ a ffefrynnau’r ffans, ‘Scenes From An Italian Restaurant’, ‘Goodnight Saigon’, ‘Piano Man’ ac eraill.

Andy Fairweather Low came to prominence as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit with songs such as ‘Bend Me Shape Me’, ‘Hello Suzy’ and ‘(If Paradise is) Half As Nice’. But you might have noticed a clue in the magnificent ‘Gin House’ to Andy’s future musical collaborations.

Join us at the Ffwrnes to commemorate the legacy of pop superstar Prince at the height of his powers in this film. Up-and-coming musician The Kid is poised to make his breakthrough, if only he can contend with the arrival of a beautiful dancer and the efforts of his rival.

Daeth Andy Fairweather Low yn adnabyddus fel prif ganwr Amen Corner. Yn y 60au, cawsant nifer o lwyddiannau â chaneuon pop megis ‘Bend Me Shape Me’, ‘Hello Suzy’ ac ‘(If Paradise is) Half As Nice’. Ond efallai eich bod wedi sylwi ar awgrym ynghylch cydweithio cerddorol Andy yn y dyfodol yn y gân odidog, ‘Gin House’.

Ymunwch â ni yn y Ffwrnes i goffau’r archseren pop Prince pan oedd ar anterth ei rym yn y ffilm hon. Mae’r cerddor addawol ‘The Kid’ ar fin cael ei gyfle mawr, ond mae’n rhaid iddo ymdopi â dyfodiad dawnswraig hardd ac ymdrechion ei gystadleuydd.
