productions

Since 1975 wgytc has staged a wide range of productions, styles and periods of theatrical work. From classic works such as Electra and The Oresteia, through Shakespearian works as diverse as Coriolanus and Twelfth Night, to modern classics by writers including Harold Pinter, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Miller. The company has complemented such established works with a wide range of devised pieces, specially commissioned works and writing in the medium of Welsh.

The following list of productions serves as an insight into the changing and developing diet of work undertaken by the Company. Click on the link to see photographs.
