FLYING BRIDGE THEATRE COMPANY AND SEABRIGHT PRODUCTIONS PRESENT THE THEATR CLWYD PRODUCTION OF
NOT ABOUT HEROES
by Stephen Macdonald
Directed by Tim Baker
 
The friendship between World War One poets Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon is celebrated in Stephen Macdonald’s award-winning play.
 
Overshadowed by an appalling war, the poets' bonds were forged through poetry whilst in hospital in 1917 - Sassoon, a decorated war hero receiving pychiatric treatment for protesting against the conflict and Owen, a victim of shell shock and accused of cowardice. Weaving together their letters and poetry, Not About Heroes is a potent exploration of courage and humanity.
 
Wales Theatre Award 2017 Best Actor - Daniel Llewelyn Williams as Siegfried Sassoon.
 
‘Compelling and superbly performed’

gan Richard Bean
Yn seiliedig ar The Servant of Two Masters gan Carlo Goldoni
Gyda chaneuon gan Grant Olding
Cyfarwyddir gan Richard Tunley
 
Mae Black RAT Productions yn cyflwyno'r fersiwn wreiddiol, ddoniol dros ben hon o ffars gyflym ac afreolus Richard Bean.
 
Ar ôl cael ei ddiswyddo o'i fand sgiffl, mae Francis Henshall yn dod yn warchodwr i Roscoe Crabbe, troseddwr di-nod o'r East End, sydd 'nawr yn Brighton i gasglu £6,000 gan dad ei ddyweddi ... Ond Rachel, ei chwaer, yw Roscoe mewn gwirionedd, wedi gwisgo fel ei diweddar frawd, a laddwyd gan ei chariad Stanley Stubbers! 
 
Ac yntau ynghudd yn The Cricketers Arms, mae Francis, sydd byth a hefyd ar lwgu, yn gweld siawns am docyn pryd ychwanegol, ac yn derbyn ail swydd gyda Stanley Stubbers, sy'n cuddio rhag yr heddlu ac yn aros i gael ei aduno â Rachel. Er mwyn sicrhau na chaiff ei ddarganfod, rhaid i Francis gadw ei ddau reolwr ar wahân. 
 
Syml.
 
Mae'r cynhyrchiad newydd sbon hwn o gynhyrchiad West End a Broadway poblogaidd Richard Bean yn cynnwys cymysgedd gwych o ganeuon, ffwlbri a dywediadau gwych.
 
Dyma brofiad theatrig  na ddylid ei golli!

by Richard Bean

Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni
With songs by Grant Olding
Directed by Richard Tunley
 
Black RAT Productions present this deliriously funny original version of Richard Bean’s fast-paced, riotous farce.
 
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancée… But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers! 
 
Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. 
 
Simple.
 
This brand new production of Richard Bean’s West End and Broadway smash-hit features a rib-tickling mix of songs, slapstick and brilliant one-liners.
 
This is a theatrical experience not to be missed!

LIPSERVICE THEATRE
 
Os ydych chi erioed wedi profi ffolineb gwych LipService, dyma eich cyfle i fwynhau clasur comedi diweddaraf y cwmni theatr. 
Mae Jane Austen wrthi'n creu a breuddwydio am Darcy, creadigaeth falch, olygus mewn trowsus tynn iawn. Ond yna, mae'r drws yn gwichian ac mae yna ymwelydd yn nesáu at Jane, wrth iddi geisio cuddio ei gwaith ar frys. 'Nawr, ac yntau'n rhydd i wneud fel y mynn, mae Darcy'n llunio ei linell stori ei hun, tra bo'i greawdwr yn brodio ei doilis. 
 
Mae byd yr awdur benywaidd yn cael ei ddatod mewn cynhyrchiad eithriadol o ddoniol, llawn parodïau. 
 
Mae'r set yn cynnwys gwaith cwilt a grëwyd yn arbennig gan grwpiau cymunedol ar gyfer y cynhyrchiad hwn. I gael gwaith cwilt, ewch i www.lipservicetheatre.co.uk
If you’ve never experienced the sublime silliness of LipService, now’s your opportunity to enjoy their latest comedy classic.
Jane Austen is dreaming up Darcy, a proud, lip curling, handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Now left to his own devices, Darcy embroiders his own storyline whilst his creator embroiders her doilies. 
 
Deliciously tongue-in-cheek, the world of the female writer is deconstructed in a hilarious parody mash-up.
 
The set features quilt work specially created by community groups for this production. To get quilting visit www.lipservicetheatre.co.uk
 
“On leaving the venue you feel a hundred times more invigorated than when you went in, with the chuckle muscles positively aching at the glorious lunacy”
