Theatr Clwyd's decision to restage Phoebe Waller-Bridge's extraordinary one-woman comedy Fleabag in Welsh is gaining pace.
Bridge’s award-winning play (-turned-TV-series) won BAFTAs, Emmys and a Golden Globe and shot Bridge into the playwriting stratosphere. Theatr Clwyd’s production, directed by Sara Lloyd, has been adapted by acclaimed Welsh writer Branwen Davies, set in north Wales and in the Welsh language, which brings a different feel to the whole exercise. So much so that the production is now to tour Wales prior to its closing run at Theatr Clwyd.
Actress Leah Gaffey will perform the title (indeed only) role and the tour now opens with a performance at the National Eisteddfod (Aug 8-10), before visits to Torch Theatre, Pembrokeshire (August 29); Theatr Soar, Merthyr Tydfil (August 30); Neuadd Dwyfor Arts Centre in Pwllheli (September 2); Sherman Theatre, Cardiff (September 5-8); Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan (September 12); Pontio Bangor (September 15-16); Theatr Brycheiniog, Brecon (September 20), Aberystwyth Arts Centre (September 22-23), ending at Theatr Clwyd from September 27-30.
