About the Show Less...

A stage adaptation in Welsh of a classic Welsh-language novel by Islwyn Ffowc Elis. Read More >

Set in rural Powys in the 1950’s Cysgod Y Cryman (Shadow Of The Sickle) dramatically portrays a period of upheaval. The new generation is turning its back on its roots and it’s head to head between Harri, the communist atheist, and his father, Edward Vaughan, the estate owner and old style Liberal. A story on an epic scale.
