National Theatre Wales, Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and August012 are joining forces to bring you a brand-new production of Fabrice Melquiot’s extraordinary play. Directed by Mathilde Lopez with a script by Daf James that mixes Welsh, English and a little French.
An unforgettable and surreal mix of dark comedy and adventure. A visual feast about relationships, language and love. Petula will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before!
How the hell do you grow up when the world around you is falling apart?
Pwdin Evans is on a mission. There’s so much in this world he can no longer deal with; his ridiculous parents, step-parents, the weight of his teenage worries, gravity, all of it. So, he launches himself into space, in search of answers and his missing cousin Petula.
