Overview

HUNO

“It was never our job to fix the world. Only to live in it.”

Mae Branwen a Math yn unedig mewn cariad. Ond wrth i’r cenhedloedd ryfela a chefnforoedd godi, a all eu gobaith am fywyd gyda'i gilydd oroesi? A all cariad ein hamddiffyn rhag digwyddiadau seismig y byd? A all y wlad o dan ein traed byth gyfateb i'r cartref yn ein calonnau a'r iaith yn ein heneidiau?

Huno yw drama gyntaf y dramodydd lleol Tamar Williams. Mae’n plethu Saesneg a Chymraeg, chwedl a realiti, yr epig a’r personol, wrth i ni dystio i fywyd un fenyw a ddaliwyd yn sgil ymdrechion dynion.

Dewch gyda ni ar siwrne lle mae’r môr yn cyffwrdd y lan a lle mae chwedlau’n dod yn fyw.


Branwen and Math are united in love. But as nations war and oceans rise, can their hope for a life together survive? Can love protect us from seismic world events? Can the land under our feet ever match the home in our hearts and the language in our souls?

Huno is the debut play of local playwright Tamar Williams. It interweaves English and Welsh, myth and reality, the epic and the personal, as we bear witness to the life of one woman caught in the wake of the endeavours of men.

Huno is a play in Welsh and English that can accessed and enjoyed by all.

Come join us on a journey where the sea touches the shores and myths come alive.

[The image is a poster. The picture show's a woman's face, with her eyes turned downwards. This shot is out of focus and in the background, casting shades of bronze and reds. In the foreground the shot focuses on several water droplets. Within these droplets we can see the woman's face, refracted and reflected in different ways.]
