Found Arts are developing a new play about the workers uprising of 1831. This event resulted in the unjust hanging of Richard Lewis (Dic Penderyn) in Cardiff.
We are looking for anyone interested in local heritage, research and theatre to take part in the development phase.
Would you like to help us create the content of the performance; the words spoken, the songs sung, the music made?
Have you an idea for how our professional actors would perform this internationally important story? A story which firmly places the people of South Wales as activists for human rights?
We invite you to:
Research the story with us…
Co-create the key scenes of the play…
Co-create new music for the performance…
Co-design the way the play will look and feel…
Initial research meetings at:
Cardiff Story Museum, Cardiff, 16th April at 1.30-4pm
Central Library, Merthyr Tydfil, 17th April l at 1.30-4pm.
