WELCOME Welcome to our summer 2017 season which sees Theatr Brycheiniog celebrate our 20th Anniversary. To mark this celebration, we will be focusing on improving facilities for our visitors and performers. The first stage of this will commence early in the season as we refurbish the Waterfront Bistro in preparation for opening in mid-summer. The Waterfront Bistro will, for the first time, be run by the Theatre, meaning that you can come and enjoy amazing food and drink at the beautiful canal-side location with all proceeds from the Bistro directly supporting the artistic work we do. The first floor Waterfront Bar is now open from 10.00am each day, seven days a week, serving homemade light snacks and beverages; it’s a great place to meet friends or family. We also have free live music in the bar every Saturday for you to enjoy with Live @ The Waterfront, making a great addition to the day. This season has a great variety of performances from artists across the globe, including a special Gala performance featuring members of the Zulu Royal Family in King Cetshwayo: The Musical, as we continue to provide our audiences with the best in high quality entertainment. And don’t forget our monthly comedy nights which are proving to be hugely popular, so booking early is recommended.

Over the coming months we will also be welcoming some new faces to our team. The first to join us is Lewis Gwyther, our new Head of Fundraising & Communications. Lewis joins us from Sherman Theatre, in Cardiff, and will be helping to raise the profile of all that we do and generate new funding for the theatre. The end of April saw us celebrate the first year of our Friends & Patrons scheme. I would like to thank all of you that have joined and hope that you will renew for another year. Punch Maughan, our Volunteer Co-ordinator, has worked hard to develop the scheme, offering excellent social events, discounted car parking and many other great benefits. If you haven’t joined yet and would like to know more about it please contact Punch at friends@brycheiniog.co.uk. We continue to look at new ways of diversifying our funding and we need your help to make sure that Theatr Brycheiniog can carry on for another 20 years, providing opportunities for future generations to participate in and experience the arts. Theatr Brycheiniog is here for everyone and with your support we will make sure that young people in particular have the same opportunities in the future that we have all enjoyed for the last 20 years. For ways you can support please visit brycheiniog.co.uk/support-us. We have some fabulous shows, classes and activities and great food and drink, there is plenty in store for the summer and I look forward to seeing you over the sunny summer months.

THE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE

CO-PRODUCTION / CYD-GYNHYRCHIAD MAPPA MUNDI & THEATR MWLDAN BY / GAN MERLIN HOLLAND A/AND JOHN O’ CONNOR DIRECTOR / CYFARWYDDWR RICHARD NICOLS The triumphant 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 and bankrupt, sentenced by the Crown to two years hard labour for homosexuality. But what happened during the trials and what did Wilde say? Was he harshly treated or the author of his own downfall? Using the actual words spoken in court, we can feel what it was like to be in the company of a flawed genius - as this less than ideal husband was tragically reduced to a man of no importance. Co-written with Ocsar Wilde’s grandson, Merlin Holland CONTAINS ADULT THEMES

Noson agoriadol orfoleddus The Importance of Being Earnest ym 1895 oedd uchafbwynt gyrfa Oscar Wilde. Llai na 100 niwrnod wedyn roedd yn y carchar ac yn fethdalwr, wedi ei ddedfrydu gan y Goron i ddwy flynedd o lafur caled am fod yn hoyw. Ond beth a ddigwyddodd yn ystod y prawf a beth a ddywedodd Wilde? Gafodd e’ ei drin yn hallt, ynteu ai fe oedd yn gyfrifol am ei gwymp ei hun? Gan ddefnyddio’r geiriau go iawn a lefarwyd yn y llys, cawn argraff o’r profiad o fod yng nghwmni’r athrylith ffaeledig hwn - wrth i’r gwr llai na delfrydol hwn gael ei ddarostwng i fod yn ddyn heb unrhyw bwysigrwydd. ^

Wedi ei gyd-ysgrifennu gydag wyr Oscar Wilde, Merlin Holland. ^

LEVIATHAN Leviathan follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.

“the world’s best classical companies rarely approach this level of physical discipline.”

Featuring a cast of 7, multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, with a blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work. Leviathan will have you on the edge of your seat and gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electrorock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.

“It’s bold, innovative and exhilarating. It’s James Wilton Dance’s best production to date”

Mae Leviathan yn dilyn Ahab, capten llong sydd â’i fryd ar ddal y morfil gwyn: Moby Dick, anghenfil mor fawr a pheryglus â’r môr ei hun, ac eto’n dawel a phrydferth y tu hwnt i bob dychymyg. Caiff criw Ahab eu tynnu i mewn i’r fenter gan garisma gorffwyll eu capten, gan ei ddilyn yn ddall ar antur beryglus tuag at ddiweddglo sy’n siwr, bron, o olygu dinistr. ^

Yn cynnwys cast o 7, bydd y coreograffydd uchel ei fri sydd wedi ennill gwobrau lu, James Wilton yn ail-ddychmygu nofel arloesol Herman Melville, ac yn cyfuno dawns athletaidd, crefft ymladd, capoeira a gwaith partner. Bydd Leviathan yn ddïau yn eich cadw ar ymyl eich sedd ac yn ymladd am wynt gan mor ffyrnig y symudiadau, a’r cyfan i gyfeiliant grymus y trac sain electro-roc gan Lunatic Soul. Mae Leviathan yn cyflwyno dyn yn erbyn grymoedd natur; byddwch wyliadwrus yn lle y byddwch yn taflu eich rhwyd. 7.30pm | £15 (£13 CONCS/GOSTYNGIAD) + 50p PER TICKET ADMIN FEE A THÂL GWEINYDDU O 50c Y TOCYN @JWiltonDance #Leviathan

SCORCHED

OPEN SKY & TURTLE KEY ARTS 1941. Egypt. WWII. An escaped German officer. A two day chase across the brutal Sahara. A triumphant capture. A hero’s return. 1991. England. Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a local legend. Decorated veteran of Tobruk. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, charmer and highly prolific father. Memories are, by his own hand, tattooed upon his body but dementia is eroding his mind. As the Gulf War rages on his TV set, the past drags him back to the scorched desert sands. Following its critically acclaimed debut at the Edinburgh Festival 2016, Open Sky present Scorched, a true story inspired by the writer’s grandfather. With striking theatrical invention and imaginative visual physical theatre the play tells the tale of a World War II veteran and follows his mind sinking into the sands of time.

Murder, poison, corruption and incest; this lecture reveals the real family that dominated the Papacy and Italian politics, during the last decade of the 15 century. Sometimes truth is more intoxicating than myth. Llofruddiaeth, gwenwyn, llygredd a llosgach; mae’r ddarlith hon yn dadlennu hanes y teulu fel yr oedd a fu mor ddylanwadol ar y Babaeth, a gwleidyddiaeth yr Eidal yn ystod y 15fed ganrif. Weithiau mae’r gwir yn fwy rhyfeddol fyth na’r chwedl.

HYNT

Art and culture is for everyone. But if you have an impairment or a specific access requirement, getting to see it isn’t always easy. Often, visiting a theatre or an arts centre can be more complicated than just booking tickets and choosing what to wear.

Mae celfyddydau a diwylliant ar gyfer pawb. Ond os oes gennych nam neu ofyniad mynediad penodol, nid yw bob amser yn hawdd cael profiad ohono. Yn aml, gall ymweld â theatr neu ganolfan gelfyddydau fod yn fwy cymhleth na dim ond archebu tocynnau a dewis beth i’w wisgo.

Hynt is a peer-led initiative rooted in the social model of disability. We work alongside disabled people, carers and the third sector to improve the quality of experiences at theatres and arts centres for anyone with a specific access requirement.

Mae Hynt yn fenter a arweinir gan gymheiriaid wedi’i gwreiddio yn Model Cymdeithasol Anabledd. Rydym yn gweithio ochr yn ochr â phobl anabl, gofalwyr a’r trydydd sector er mwyn gwella ansawdd profiadau mewn theatrau a chanolfannau celfyddydau i unrhyw un â gofyniad mynediad penodol.

If you need support or assistance to attend a performance at a theatre or arts centre then you may be eligible to join hynt.

Os oes angen cefnogaeth neu gymorth arnoch i fynychu perfformiad mewn theatr neu ganolfan gelf, yna efallai y byddwch yn gymwys i ymuno â Hynt.
