Milwr yn y Meddwl "Soldier in the Mind"
This last week, like every first week of August, was time for the Welsh language culture festival - the National Eisteddfod.
Wednesday evening I attended a new Welsh language theatre production of last year's drama prize winner. Excellent!
Ned has arrived home in west Wales from the battlefield. But his recent experiences in the Iraq war have left deep scars; some visible, and others – the deepest – invisible. This is a new, heart-rending play examining the effects of traumatic events on a Welsh soldier, as he and his family try to come to terms with horrific events from his past and the new challenges facing him. In an eternal story about love and belonging, will the bonds of love and family overcome the bullet and the bomb?
Director: Jac Ifan Moore
