“loving ‘til it hurts … hurting ‘til it’s love”

Two people, trapped in love, ascend an isolated tower. Torn between desire and resentment, a tender patchwork of their life together – both real and imagined – emerges.

An expansive study of relationships, memory and the limits of love by one of Wales’ most important playwrights. Award-winning Invertigo Theatre Company reunites the critically-acclaimed team behind their 2013 sell-out production of Saer Doliau (Doll Mender) at the Finborough Theatre, London.

Performed in Welsh, with English surtitles.

 


“caru nes bod o’n brifo … brifo nes bod o’n garu”

Dau berson, wedi eu huno mewn cariad, yn dringo grisiau tŵr unig. Ar goll mewn brwydr rhwng nwyd a dicter mae clytwaith eu bywyd – yn real ac yn ddychmygol – yn cael ei ddatgelu.

Astudiaeth eang o berthnasau, atgofion a ffiniau cariad gan un o ddramodwyr pwysicaf Cymru. Mae cwmni theatr arobryn Invertigo, a greodd gynhyrchiad hynod lwyddiannus o Saer Doliau yn y Theatr Finborough yn Llundain yn 2013, wedi ail-uno’r tîm arloesol ar gyfer un arall o glasuron Gwenlyn Parry.

Perfformir yn y Gymraeg gydag uwchdeitlau Saesneg.
