Nyrsys – Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru

As this year sees the NHS turn 70, we take a look behind the scenes of a busy cancer ward in a hospital in Wales today, with a script and songs created from interviews with real nurses. This new play shines a light on nurses’ experiences — the challenges they face in their day-today work and the mischief, sisterhood and sense of vocation that sustains them. A heartfelt depiction of the life and work of these real-life heroes who care for us and our loved ones within a healthcare system that’s under perpetual strain.

This is a Welsh-language production. The Sibrwd app provides a live audio synopsis for non-Welsh speakers and Welsh beginners. Full information available here.

Age guidance: 11+

As this production is an integral part of the company’s exploration of the theme Care and Community, and comes at the end of a special year in the history of the National Health Service, a special offer is available of concession price or 10% off ticket price for all NHS staff. NHS staff are kindly asked to show their ID card and quote ‘NyrsysGIG’ when buying tickets.
On Tuesday 17 April, we presented the first public presentation of Nyrsys as a work in progress at Wales Millennium Centre, as part of their season ‘Performances for the Curious’.

An innovated comedy featuring fully integrated audio description for visually impaired and sighted audiences to enjoy alike – so throw away those headsets – we’re all in this together…

When a clueless, but very well-intentioned theatre company attempt to stage their interpretation of an Oscar Wilde classic, objectivity, tradition, British politeness, handbags and several cups of tea fly out the window.

Moved and inspired by the tragedy of Dame Judi Dench’s macular degeneration and one of the cast’s confusion over what varifocals are, Eye, Claudius Theatre Company have toiled tirelessly to present their work in an ‘inclusive’ way. Brace yourself for a romping hour of song, sound effects, deft physicality and live audio description from every character that will transport you into the midst of a delicious, romantic melodrama such as you’ve never experienced before!
