What can you expect from Ghost Cities?

Sherman Youth Theatre bursts onto the main house stage with Ghost Cities, a play about Wales, set in Cardiff. With nods to the past, and the future, but rooted firmly in the present. Sharing what life in our city, and the world, means to the Sherman’s young people here and now.
