PETULA

August 012, National Theatre Wales and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru bring you a brand-new adaptation of Fabrice Melquiot’s extraordinary play, Wanted Petula.

 

Directed by Mathilde Lopez, with a blistering script by Daf James blending Welsh, English and a little French, this production promises to be a giddy fairy tale and a surreal visual feast.

Petula is a dark, playful and piercing show about growing up, family and love.

Touring throughout Wales in Spring 2022.

 

We are casting the following roles to complete our company of adventurous, flexible and playful performers. 

 

Pwdin, a boy, playing age 12 – 16 (actual age must be 17+, i.e. not in need of a young performers' license)

It’s essential that this actor speak Welsh

 

A young boy struggling with the loss of his beloved cousin. His grief sets him off, in search for her, on a journey departing with reality.

We welcome suggestions of disabled performers and performers of all ethnicities for this role.

This performer needn’t speak Welsh.

 

We are casting a woman of colour in this role (so would love suggestions of actors of African and Caribbean heritage, of South Asian or East Asian or Southeast Asian heritage, those who have a Middle East or North African heritage, and actors of mixed heritage or from other minority ethnic communities)

 

Pwdin’s step mother, she is an ex-vampire, or she used to be famous for playing a vampire in a London stage show. Additionally plays The Little Prince and Amy Winehouse.

We welcome suggestions of disabled performers for this role.

PETULA

National Theatre Wales, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru ac August 012 yn cyflwyno addasiad newydd sbon o ddrama ryfeddol Fabrice Melquiot, Wanted Petula.

 

Wedi'i gyfarwyddo gan Mathilde Lopez, gyda sgript drawiadol gan Daf James yn asio Cymraeg, Saesneg ac ychydig o Ffrangeg, mae'r cynhyrchiad hwn yn addo bod yn stori dylwyth teg hudolus ac yn wledd weledol swrrealaidd.

Sioe dywyll, chwareus a threiddgar am dyfu i fyny, teulu a chariad yw Petula.

Yn teithio ledled Cymru yn ystod Gwanwyn 2022.

 

Rydym yn castio'r rolau canlynol i gwblhau ein cwmni o berfformwyr anturus, hyblyg a chwareus. 

 

Pwdin, bachgen, oed perfformio 12 - 16  (oed go iawn 17+)

Mae'n hanfodol bod yr actor hwn yn siarad Cymraeg

Llys-fam i Pwdin, mae hi'n gyn-fampir, neu efallai ei bod hi'n arfer bod yn enwog am chwarae fampir mewn sioe lwyfan yn Llundain. 

Rydym yn croesawu awgrymiadau ar gyfer perfformwyr anabl ar gyfer y rôl hon
