Rescheduled Performance of The Wood for Cardiff Audiences

Torch Theatre’s ‘The Wood’ will be seen in Cardiff following the cancellation of last week’s scheduled performance at RWCMD due to the adverse weather conditions.

The Wood will be performed at Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, on Monday 12 March. Anyone who booked tickets for the original performance will be contacted and given priority booking until 2pm tomorrow (Wednesday). After that point tickets will go on general sale.

A new play from the director and writer of the award-winning Grav, written to mark the centenary of the end of World War One, The Wood opened to a standing ovation at the Torch Theatre last month (Tue 20 Feb to Thur 1 March 2018) and garnered favourable reviews in print and online:

Based on an idea by BAFTA Cymru award-winning actor Ifan Huw Dafydd, The Wood has been developed by Owen and Peter as a two-hander, performed by Ifan Huw Dafydd alongside Pembrokeshire’s own Gwydion Rhys.

Ifan Huw Dafydd has had an extensive career on stage and television, and in 2009 won the BAFTA Cymru ‘Best Actor’ award.  He can currently be seen in BBC One’s ‘Requiem’. Gwydion has featured as a regular on various S4C and BBC Dramas including ‘Hinterland’ and ‘Craith/Hidden’. For both actors this is their first collaboration with the Torch Theatre Company.

The production can be seen on a tour of Wales throughout March 2018.
