A VILLAGE hall in Neath is the venue for an exciting new piece of drama from National Theatre Wales, the people who brought The Passion to Port Talbot.

The Village Social – their second production in their second year, and their very first musical – will be showing at Neath Little Theatre in Westernmoor Road at 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 26, as part of a tour of village halls across the country.

 

This show, a surreal piece of musical theatre, has been co-created by award-winning duo Dafydd James and Ben Lewis.

 

Described by its creators as “The Vicar of Dibley meets The Wicker Man”, The Village Social tells the story of an apparently innocent and genteel community fundraising evening that soon descends into hysteria and debauchery.

 

The evening’s delights include entry into the raffle, a refreshment of your choice and a depraved orgy of blood.

 

John McGrath, National Theatre Wales’ artistic director, said: “Dafydd James is one of the most exciting Welsh theatre artists of his generation – he combines a unique sense of humour with extraordinary musical talent.

 

“Director and co-writer Ben Lewis has already proved himself an extraordinary talent too. I am thrilled that they will be creating National Theatre Wales’ first musical for us.”
