One of Wales' greatest writers and directors, Peter Gill, returns to his native city with a portrait of provincial life in 1890s Russia.
Based on Chekhov's poignant short story, A Provincial Life follows one young man's struggle to exchange his privileged position for the life of a worker. This painful, lyrical play dramatises the search for equality in a way that resonates deeply today.

Here are some reactions from the audience at A Provincial Life's NTW Social on Friday night .
Simplicity, integrity and a subtle theatricality. Perhaps some will find it over-long and the ending may, as yet, need some tweaking - but trusting the words and trusting the performers, Peter Gill is a Master Craftsman working in his hometown - Magic!

Nick Shaw (Misail) and Alex Clatworthy (Maria) chat about their characters:
Great to visit rehearsals yesterday. Saw the first two big scenes on their feet. The precision and thought with which each line of the show is explored is inspiring to watch. This will, I am confident, but a truly fine, and finely-tuned, piece of work.
