Profile Information

What I do:
Our vision is to share stories for a lifetime
A little more about me:
Theatr Iolo is an award-winning theatre company, which for over twenty-five years has delivered witty, bittersweet and powerfully magical performances in schools, nurseries, village halls, community centres, theatres, forests, streets, playgrounds and even a cowshed in Austria. We have performed all over Wales and the UK, and internationally across Europe, Russia and Korea.
Although our roots lie in theatre for children and young people, our work is relevant to all ages. A person’s first experience of Theatr Iolo at six months old will hopefully be the first of many throughout their lifetime. We see beauty in fragility and tell bittersweet stories that transport you and lift you. We think and feel about things deeply, and we invite you to do the same. We don’t shy away from difficult issues.

Our productions are brave enough to go to darker and more though-provoking places. They are truthful and compelling with an understated, quiet strength. We believe that as long as we are unflinching in the way we present the truth, our stories will always be relevant. Questions are welcomed and everyone’s opinion counts. We don’t always do things in the conventional way. We promise to give you spellbinding stories for modern times and for all to enjoy.

We hope to welcome you at one of our performances soon and encourage you to come and say hello.
Location:
Cardiff, Wales
Projects I’m working on:
Theatr Iolo is delighted to announce a thrilling new production for the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival.

Samuel Bennett leaves his home in South Wales to pursue a career in London. Setting out with an attitude of reckless, nihilistic purpose, he encounters a nightmarish city. A room full of furniture, an assortment of bizarre characters and an embarrassing first sexual experience in a cold bath.
Join Samuel as he meandersthrough this dreamlike world, all with a beer bottle stuck on his little finger.

Dylan Thomas’s gloriously surreal coming-of-age and unfinished novel is given new life by acclaimed writer, Lucy Gough (Hollyoaks, Wuthering Heights,Creative Wales Award winner) in a special production for the Thomas centenary.
