  • From Owen Thomas, writer of the award winning Grav, comes a brand-new play written to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War I, directed by Peter Doran.

    It is July 1916, and as the Battle of the Somme rages, Mametz Wood echoes to the sounds of war as the 38th Welsh Regiment face the ferocity of the German army.

    Inspired by a true story. Dan and Billy, two young soldiers, forge a friendship in the heat of the build up to the infamous battle. When Billy is killed in Mametz Wood, he leaves behind a devastated friend and, back home, a heart-broken and pregnant wife.

    A tale of friendship, love and sacrifice.

    Mae’n Orffennaf 1916, ac wrth i Frwydr Somme gynddeiriogi, mae Coedwig Mametz Wood yn adleisio synau’r rhyfel wrth i’r 38ain Gatrawd Gymreig wynebu ffyrnigrwydd y fyddin Almaeneg…
    O Owen Thomas, awdur yr arobryn Grav, daw drama newydd sbon wedi ei hysgrifennu i ddathlu canmlwyddiant diwedd y Rhyfel Byd I. Wedi ei hysbrydoli gan stori wir.
    Mae Dan a Billy, dau filwr ifanc, yn ffurfio cyfeillgarwch yng ngwres y cynnwrf i’r frwydr waradwyddus. Pan gaiff Billy ei ladd yng Nghoedwig Mametz Wood, mae’n gadael ffrind difrodedig ac, adref, gwraig feichiog ar ôl.
    Hanner can mlynedd yn hwyrach, mewn llannerch yn y goedwig, mae Dan wedi dychwelyd i roi’r ysbryd i orffwys.
