10th - 19th October 2013

In its centenary year the Park & Dare theatre in Treorchy plays host to the first play from Dylan Thomas Prize winning author Rachel Trezise; a raucous, raunchy, hilarious and heartbreaking account of a daughter’s fraught, decade-spanning relationship with her beautiful, fun-loving and alcoholic mother. ‘You just know it’s going to be one of those nights. She’s on the change. I’m on my period. Hormonal teenager and neurotic mother under one terraced roof? My father’s got a word for it: Tonypandemonium.'

On a visit to the Parc and Dare last week I noticed an old poster in the foyer for a gig by Labi Siffre.

Today he describes himself as an Atheist, Poet, Musician, Liberal, Social Commentator and still lives in Wales. Back in 1975 he released the track 'I Got The...' which has been sampled by The Beatnuts, Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem & Primal Scream amongst others.

As you probably know, this show is part of the #NTWTreorchy residency at the Parc & Dare theatre. We're very excited about collaborating with RCT Cultural Services and lots of other people to create a residency packed with activity and opportunity. 

We have confirmed a number of the events which will form the residency programme, which you'll find below. There will also be plenty more - including workshops, music events and WalesLab projects - which we'll tell you all about when they're confirmed. 

If you live in the area, you'd like to be part of any of the events, or you have any great ideas for other things we should be doing, let us know.
