Welcome to the Sherman Theatre’s Autumn season. We are delighted to be able to share some very exciting work with you. Our own main stage production of Ibsen’s ground breaking classic A Doll’s House is at the heart of our programme; this play originally shocked audiences, depicting a woman who realises she is deeply constrained and unhappy in her role as wife and mother. Nora heralded a new female agency in modern theatre. This discourse around accepted female roles in society remains relevant now.
We have some exciting new plays on our stage,too. Our resident company, Cwmni Pluen, present their new bilingual play Ti.Me, and Gary Owen’s Iphigenia in Splott returns from Edinburgh. We co-produce with Glasgow’s Òran Mór to present Happy Hour as part of the phenomenally successful A Play, A Pie and A Pint series.
At Christmas, we welcome our family audiences with a playful new version of The Princess and the Pea / Y Dywysoges a’r Bysen Fechan Fach,co-produced with Theatr Iolo. On our main stage, we have The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in a vibrant and visual actor-musician production; full of mystery, fun and live music!
As ever our fantastic outreach work continues to connect with local audiences and to develop new links with them.
So welcome to our new season. We are here for you, our audience. Come and join in.
