TICKETS  are FREE, but booking required
This performance will take place in the Rose Theatre

Set when the foundations of Welsh National Identity were laid, Cartref explores Wales’ most influential migrant community, the Liverpool Welsh.

Rewinding back to August 1929, the performance calls the audience to witness a middle-aged Welsh woman as she prepares a funeral tea, according to the traditions of her community. Cartref visits a closed Liverpool-Welsh community in mourning, during the National Eisteddfod (a Welsh annual festival of music, song and poetry).

Theatr Gadair Ddu is a new theatre company based in Liverpool and Rhuthun, Wales. The Company’s work aims to explore human experience by placing the actor at the centre of the theatrical event. Cartref represents the Company’s first in a collection of works focused on the experiences of the Liverpool-Welsh community during the interwar period.

The performance will be followed by a short Q&A with the actors and director.
