Tom a Twm

It's 1861 on Swansea's poor street and an old man with a false nose is teased, taunted and harassed by local street urchins.

As if Tom Prichard - Builth Wells' forgotten poet - didn't have enough on his (empty) plate. The arrival of an unexpected and persistent visitor, and daily hauntings from his most famous creation, Twm Sion Cati, begin to unearth the past that Prichard's left behind.

Then comes Tom's slowly dawning realisation: if history remembers either of them, then it's very likely to be Twm.

A vibrant new play devised and created by Builth Wells High School and Wyeside Arts Centre, written by Ralph Bolland.

Directed by Ralph Bolland and Kama Roberts. Design by Blue Macaskill and Musical Direction by Jim Elliot. Created and performed by Builth Wells High School.
