Anweledig

This is a Welsh Language performance 

A powerful and harrowing Welsh language production that follows the journey of Glenda, played by Ffion Dafis, as she struggles to deal with this invisible illness.

We follow Glenda’s fiercely personal anguish as she confronts the illness and faces life outside of hospital. How will she, her family and friends deal with the traumatic reality of recovery? Will she find light at the end of the tunnel?

The production has been inspired by real medical records from the old Denbigh mental health hospital in North Wales.

Sherman Youth Theatre will go on to perform Ageless at the National Theatre Connections Festival in April.

Lord of the Flies

On a remote island, a new society is being created. A group of evacuated school children have crash landed. There are no adults to tell them what to do. They’ve ripped up the rule book and are starting all over again. But it’s not long before their utopia descends into a nightmarish hell.

Step into a terrifying dystopian future where rules don't matter, law means nothing and school kids rule the world.  This is a bold and contemporary staging of William Golding’s classic.
