Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru – Estron (Alien)

Estron (Alien)
by Hefin Robinson

On tour across Wales 19 April – 19 May

Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru
in association with the National Eisteddfod of Wales and Carmarthenshire Theatres

A laptop, a tin of Quality Streets, and an author searching for his play in an infinite universe.

Recent devastating events have turned Alun’s world upside down, but in the darkness he seeks solace in a visitor from another world.

An intriguing new play for the current generation by one of our brightest young writers, and winner of the Drama Medal at the Monmouthshire and District National Eisteddfod, 2016. Estron was performed for the first time in the Cwt Drama at the Anglesey National Eisteddfod, 2017. This is a rare opportunity to see a Drama Medal winner on a national tour.

“I was in tears, with a wide grin on my face, when I jumped to my feet at the end . . . This is a powerful play . . . that must be experienced.” Lowri Cooke

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.

Please note that the performance at Chapter, Cardiff on Wednesday 16 May, 7pm will be BSL interpreted.
