Show Information

"Me and you are the luckiest to end up here. It could’ve been anywhere…"

In the late 1950s two young brothers left Waulah, a small village in Pakistan, with nothing more than a suitcase of clothes and five pounds in their pockets. They rented a house on Christina Street in the docks, where they welcomed, lodged and helped find work for many more newcomers from Waulah.

Today three generations of men, women and children live across Cardiff; their stories all stem from the journeys made by those who left Waulah.

Performed by members of this Cardiff community; Sherman Cymru and Waulah Cymru celebrate and share many rich and varied real life stories. Stories of the hope, ambition and perseverance of people that made Cardiff home.

Testimonials

“The [rehearsal] process has made a close knit community even closer! The youngsters have been humbled listening to the stories of the elders; the elders have come to know the personalities of the youngsters – not just their names and which family they belong to!

It's been immense fun rehearsing together and getting to know each other better and encouraging one another in the world of theatre, which up until now we were all unfamiliar with.” - Aalia Rahman, Waulah Cymru committee

“It’s not just the audience who’s finding out about their journeys, it’s actually a journey for us as well … the stories have reignited that past journey that they’ve made. It’s something that isn’t often talked about but they’re reliving that now, on stage, which is really exciting, not just for them but for us too.” - Naeem Amir, Waulah Cymru committee

Exhibition

As part of this community project we will be displaying a portrait exhibition of cast members in our foyer.
