The Wood

A Torch Theatre Company Production

 

Based on an idea by Ifan Huw Dafydd

 

Directed by Peter Doran

 

From Owen Thomas, writer of the award winning Grav, comes a new play written to mark the centenary of the end of World War One. In July 1916 during the infamous Battle of the Somme, Mametz Wood echoed to the sounds of war. Fifty years later in a clearing in the middle of the wood an old man has returned to lay a ghost to rest.

  

The Torch Theatre is very pleased to be working once again with Owen Thomas – one of the most exciting writers in Wales, following the success of Grav.

 

The production will be directed by our Award Winning Artistic Director, Peter Doran (Best Director, Wales Theatre Awards 2017)
