Recent devastating events have turned Alun’s world upside down, but in the darkness he seeks solace in a visitor from another world. An intriguing new play for the current generation by one of our most talented young writers, and winner of the Drama Medal at the Monmouthshire and District National Eisteddfod, 2016. Estron was performed for the first time in the Cwt Drama at the Anglesey National Eisteddfod, 2017. This is a rare opportunity to see this award-winning play on a national tour. “I was in tears, with a wide grin on my face, when I jumped to my feet at the end . . . This is a powerful play . . . that must be experienced.” Lowri Cooke #Estron Age guidance: Age 11+ (features strong language) ABOUT THE PERFORMER Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru is the Welsh-language national theatre of Wales.
