Show Information


Four plays exploring tales of dilemma, deceit and euphoria inspired by the streets and spires of Cardiff. Four writers were immersed in Cardiff's daily life as they had never seen it before, shadowing residents of the city including a grave digger, a hotel cleaner and a train driver. These visions of contemporary life in the Capital are their responses to those interactions.
