THEATR UNNOS 2017 / August 2017

24 hours to create an original piece of theatre!

Anglesey National Eisteddfod 2017

The National Eisteddfod’s theatre area (Pentref Drama) will be transformed into a make-shift production studio for a very special piece of theatre.

Frân Wen theatre company will create a new piece of theatre in 24 hours with a crew of Wales’ most prominent artists, with a performance set for the Eisteddfod theatre stage at 12pm on the Saturday (12 August).

The Theatr Unnos (Overnight Theatre) artists are Casi Wyn, Owain Gwynn, Mali Tudno Jones, Osian Gwynedd, Iola Ynyr and Branwen Davies.

Frân Wen are encouraging all visitors to the National Eisteddfod to post their ideas through the letterbox of a bright yellow door situated in the Pentref Drama.

“The artists will be pulling the theme of the production out of a hat at 12pm on Friday (11 August) at the Theatre Cafe and this will act as the inspiration for the live production,” said Iola Ynyr, Frân Wen’s artistic director.

The crew will be working overnight to create a piece of theatre that will be performed in Theatr y Maes at 12pm on the last Saturday (12 August) of the festival.

“We have a superb mix of artists – from performers Casi Wyn, Mali Tudno Jones and Owain Gwynn, to composer Osian Gwynedd and director Branwen Davies.

“As a team we can’t wait to react theatrically to what to public give us – and to create a really exciting piece of theatre,” added Iola.

*You can follow Theatr Unnos all day and night through Twitter & Instagram (#TheatrUnnos / @cwmnifranwen), Facebook ( ) and the stage performance will be broadcast live on Periscope.*
