MANYLEB CASTIO

 

Pryd Mae’r Haf?

gan Chloë Moss

Trosiad gan Gwawr Loader

 

Cynhyrchiad Criw Brwd a Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru mewn cydweithrediad â
The Other Room a Theatr Soar


Wedi’i gosod yng nghymoedd y de yn 1989, mae’r ddrama’n dilyn hanes Luke a Christie – y ddau yn eu harddegau ac yn ffrindiau gorau. Wrth iddyn nhw adael yr ysgol, mae eu bywydau’n dilyn llwybrau gwahanol – mae Luke yn ymuno â’r fyddin, ond aros gartre mae Christie, gan barhau ei berthynas â’i gariad, Julie. Ond mae’r ddau fachgen yn darganfod bod eu cyfeillgarwch yn dioddef oherwydd y llwybrau gwahanol maen nhw wedi’u dewis.

 

Addasiad Cymraeg yw hwn gan Gwawr Loader o’r ddrama Christmas is Miles Away gan Chloë Moss. Mae’r ddrama wedi’i gosod yn y 1980au hwyr ac yn rhoi llwyfan i’r teimladau hynny o rwystredigaeth, pryder a gobaith sydd mor berthnasol i bobl ifanc heddiw ag yr oeddynt yn y cyfnod hwnnw. Sion Pritchard fydd yn cyfarwyddo’r cynhyrchiad.

CASTING SPECIFICATION

 

Pryd Mae’r Haf?

by Chloë Moss

Adaptation by Gwawr Loader

 

A production by Criw Brwd and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru in association with
The Other Room and Theatr Soar


Set in the south Wales valleys in 1989, the play follows the story of Luke and Christie, two teenage boys who are best friends. As they leave school, their lives follow different paths – Luke joins the army, but Christie stays at home and continues his relationship with his girlfriend, Julie. But the boys find that their friendship suffers as a result of the different paths they have chosen to follow.

 

This is a Welsh adaptation by Gwawr Loader of the play Christmas is Miles Away by Chloë Moss. The play is set in the late 1980s, and gives a platform to those feelings of frustration, anxiety and hope that are as relevant to young people today as they were then. Sion Pritchard will be directing the production.
