Friday night. Music pounds, lager flows, lust ignites, and fists fly. This run-down spa town in a forgotten corner of Wales is filled with big personalities and even bigger egos.
The scene is set for Pavilion, a new dark comedy by Emily White and directed by Theatr Clwyd’s Artistic Director Tamara Harvey comes to Newport’s Riverfront Theatre this autumn.
Pavilion is Emily White’s debut play. Emily originally trained as an actress at RADA, before obtaining an MA in Theatre Writing at York University. In 2018, she won a place on Channel 4’s 4Screenwriting Course and this year she was selected to be part of the BBC Wales Writers room group. She is currently writing a digital theatre piece for Wrapt Films/Open Sky Theatre and is also developing projects for TV, radio, theatre and film.
Pavilion features an exciting cast consisting of Ifan Huw Dafydd (Dewi), Carly-Sophia Davies (Jess), Caitlin Drake (Myfanwy), Ellis Duffy (Gary), Michael Geary (Evan), Lowri Hamer (Bethan), Victoria John (Big Nell), Kristian Phillips (Lloyd), Adam Redmore (Mark/Will), Rebecca Smith-Williams (Mary) and Tim Treloar (Dylan).
The production transfers directly to Newport’s Riverfront Theatre, the first time a Theatr Clwyd production will have played the arts centre in South Wales, from October 22 – 25. The presentation will coincide with the 15th anniversary celebrations of The Riverfront Theatre.
