Book Now

Four people. 200 years. The feeling of being hunted.
A horn sounds in the clearing, a factory explosion, a rush of blood. Can you truly escape the destiny set out for you? From selling out, to leaving home, to returning to a place of regret, Tachwedd charts a family’s’s journey as they try to reconcile the inescapability of the past with the weight of the future.

Embark on an exhilarating journey through time, myth, and legacy with Tachwedd, a captivating play that unfurls the intricate relationship between history, land, and consequence. Seamlessly transporting you between the eras of Bethesda, North Wales, Tachwedd weaves together the agricultural to the industrial, and all the way to the contemporary. Tachwedd turns the notion of a ‘state-of-the-nation’ on its head, intertwining religious fervour, royal hunting parties, and palpable national angst to create an evocative,
searing piece of contemporary theatre. At once enigmatic and blisteringly direct, this beautiful production invites you to question the past, challenge the present, and bear witness to the forces that shape our collective destiny.
