Pembroke Arcadia 

Thursday 18th July 7.30pm | Taliesin


Commissioned by National Theatre Wales. Presented by Fluellen Theatre Company in association with the British Shakespeare Association, Theatr Cadair and Taliesin Arts Centre at Swansea University.

Cross-dressing, sword-fighting, ferocious wild beasts and  poetic shepherds – all in a Classical paradise which bears an uncanny resemblance to South Wales. 

Dating from the time  of Shakespeare, Sir Philip Sidney’s  romantic comedy was the most-read  work of prose fiction for 200 years before disappearing from popular view. Now in this theatrical world premiere , D.J.Britton gives  Sidney’s hilarious and lyrical work  a new life as part of the 2019 British Shakespeare Association’s  visit to Swansea University. 

Be ready for multiple disguises, identity confusion, dangerous sleeping potions, impetuous young lovers and  a randy  older couple who ought to know better.  A fast-paced and tender dramatization of  a hidden gem of British literature. 

From the writer/director of  the  Lloyd George stage hit The Wizard the Goat and The Man Who Won the War.

Thursday 18 July 7.30pm
