Number 5 Cwmdonkin Drive by Liz Wride

Tom Dylan’s 18th birthday celebrations falls on the same day as the celebration of the centenary of Dylan Thomas . There is another coincidence, he with his mam and dad are living in Dylan”s birthplace at 5 Cwmdokin Drive. In Liz Wride’s hilarious play some of the characters created by Dylan Thomas seem to come to life to make sure Tom’s birthday goes with a bang.

The Pity of War by Gwynne Edwards

The Pity of War by Gwynne Edwards

Poems and reflective narrative from Wilfred Owen. His penetrating reactions to World War 1. Mathew David as the young poet/soldier takes us not only on to the fields of battle but also with Gwynne Edwards’ carefully chosen words we hear his letter home to his mother, his time as President of the Mess with the key of the whisky store whilst training with horses in Abbeyville. We hear of the camaraderie of the men recovering in the field hospitals, of his meeting with Siegfried Sassoon, H G Wells and Robert Ross, friend of Oscar Wilde. We hear of the Welsh connections of the Shrewsbury born hero.
