Taliesin Live - Silverglass
A master-craftsman of Welsh fiction, Rhys Davies combined pin-point observation of Valleys life with a twinkling sense of comedy. His long-term friend Anna Kavan wrote dark and troubled novels described by J.G. Ballard as “somewhere between poetry and madness”. Each lived a life of self-invention, in which secrets, sexuality and deep questions of personal identity lurked constantly in the shadows.
D.J. Britton’s high-energy play is set in the late 1960s when Davies’ late literary recognition and Kavan’s final tragedy came together like a thunderclap.
The production brings writer/director Britton and BAFTA-winning actor Richard Elfyn together again, following their success in 2012 with The Wizard the Goat and the Man Who Won the War. This is a one-night only showing of the play, which will go into further development before a planned tour next year.
The performance will be followed by a short discussion.
