Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s award-winning comedy Fleabag will be translated into Welsh and performed across the principality as part of the summer/autumn season from Mold-based Theatr Clwyd.
Adapted by acclaimed Welsh writer Branwen Davies (Dirty Protest and Os Nad Nawr), it will be performed by Leah Gaffey (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Sherman Theatre) and directed by Sara Lloyd (Nyrsys, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru). Venues and dates for the tour are to be announced, but its final performances will be at Theatr Clwyd (September 27-30).
Shows from other companies include Brian Friel's Faith Healer (September 12-16); The Importance of Being… Earnest? (October 5-7), an unpredictable twist on the comedy classic, and 440 Theatre with their versions of Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet (July 22), when four actors will perform each piece in 40 minutes.
There's an impressive season of music, ranging from virtuoso guitar and blues and soul to Mid-Wales Opera (October 25).
Comedy Club showcases some of the finest comedians on the circuit and a range of family shows includes the Family Arts Festival (July 8-9) with shows and workshops for £2.
The Flintshire venue has previously announced its home-produced work Truth Or Dare (April 27– May 13), ten pieces of new writing; The Great Gatsby (Jun 15– Aug 27) interactive performances, and rock ‘n’ roll pantomime Sleeping Beauty, (November 30-January 6).
