Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru

Trade fair


Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru reflects the dynamic culture of Wales through theatre in the Welsh language – at traditional theatre venues and unexpected locations throughout Wales and beyond. Its recent site specific Welsh-language production of Macbeth was broadcast live to venues across Wales from the Medieval castle at Caerphilly.

The company has won Wales Theatre Awards’ Best Welsh-language Production three times in recent years, most recently in 2016 for Chwalfa. Its latest production, Y Tŵr, a co-production with Music Theatre Wales, represents a significant moment, as the company ventures into the world of contemporary opera for the first time.
