SUMMARY

Two leading Welsh theatre companies have joined forces to stage a new production of Llwyth [Tribe] by the award-winning writer Dafydd James.

The first co-production between Sherman Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru (the Welsh language national theatre) will see the Welsh language play presented at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 20-28 August before returning to Wales for a final tour.

Llwyth [Tribe] is set on rugby international night in Cardiff when the tribes are out in force. Wales has lost, but four gay friends are determined to have a night to remember… whatever the cost.

Originally produced by Sherman Cymru in April 2010, Llwyth [Tribe] received rave reviews and was hailed by cultural commentators as a defining moment in Welsh theatre. The original production played to packed theatres throughout Wales, as well as having a sell-out run in London, where all performances were surtitled.

Llwyth [Tribe] is directed by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s Artistic Director Arwel Gruffydd (previously Sherman Cymru’s Associate Director) and stars Simon Watts, Danny Grehan, Paul Morgans and Michael Humphreys.

Arwel Gruffydd comments: “This exciting partnership between Sherman Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru allows for a gloriously uplifting vision of Wales to be played out to an international audience at Edinburgh, and being selected to be part of the British Council Showcase is just the icing on the cake.”

Llwyth is at St George’s West Church on 20-28 August 2011 at 11:45am - all performances will be with English surtitles. Tickets can be booked from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Box Office on 0131 226 0000 or via the website at www.edfringe.com

A Cardiff run and Welsh tour will follow 13 September – 1 October. For further details please visit www.shermancymru.co.uk or www.theatr.com
