Shepherd Geth Roberts might be getting on in years, but he still lives alone, high in the Elan Valley above the market town of Rhayader. He is a born story-teller who has spent his whole life working his wild and windswept farm, hidden away in the timeless Cambrian Mountains beneath the awesome beauty of the Elan night skies, unpolluted by city lights.

But now Geth faces his greatest ever challenge: his sight is failing and if he can’t see then his life has no purpose – he can’t work the farm or carve the exquisite Shepherd’s Crooks for which he’s famous.

Peter Cox’s new one-man show, performed by Llion Williams, is a heart-warming and heart-breaking tribute to hill-farming communities across Wales and their strength, endurance and determination to survive, even when the odds against them seem impossible.

Teg dweud bod y bugail, Geth Roberts, yn heneiddio braidd, ond mae’n dal i fyw ar ei ben ei hun, ar lethrau Cwm Elan uwchben tref farchnad Rhaeadr Gwy. Mae’r storïwr wrth reddf ac wedi treulio ei oes cyfan yn gweithio ar ei fferm anghysbell wyllt, ynghudd ar lethrau serth yr Elenydd, o dan ffurfafen brydferth ryfeddol y nos yng Nghwm Elan, heb unrhyw lygredd golau oddi wrth oleuadau’r dinasoedd.

Ond yn awr, mae Geth yn wynebu’r her bennaf erioed: mae’n dechrau colli ei olwg ac os na all weld, yna pa bwrpas sydd i’w einioes – all e ddim gweithio ar y fferm, na chwaith gerfio’r ffyn bugail cywrain ryfeddol y mae’n enwog am eu creu.

Mae sioe un dyn newydd Peter Cox, a berfformir gan Llion Williams, nid dim ond yn gynhyrchiad twymgalon ond hefyd yn deyrnged o waelod calon i’r cymunedau rheini o amaethwyr mynydd sydd i’w cael ar draws Cymru, a’r cryfder, dycnwch a’r penderfyniad i oroesi sy’n eu nodweddu, hyd yn oed pan yr ymddengys nad oes siawns o gwbl ganddynt.

All performances will be captioned / Mi fydd pob perfformiad â capsiynau
