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.
