And our big October news, teaming up with National Theatre Wales
This is what NTW has to say about the event
Written by Rachel Trezise
Directed by Mathilde López
At the Park & Dare Theatre, Treorchy
During its centenary year, the Park & Dare Theatre in Treorchy plays host to the first play from Dylan Thomas Prize-winning author Rachel Trezise; a raucous, raunchy, hilarious, heartbreaking and autobiographical account of a daughter’s fraught, decade-spanning relationship with her beautiful, fun-loving and alcoholic mother.
“You just know it’s going to be one of those nights. Hormonal teenager and neurotic mother under one terraced roof? My father’s got a word for it: Tonypandemonium.”
As part of its residency in Treorchy, National Theatre Wales is teaming up with Wales’s most exciting fringe theatre company, Dirty Portest, to present Dirty, Gifted and Welsh – a celebration of the extraordinary new writing emerging from Wales today – with new plays, music and debate taking over every corner of the Park & Dare Theatre.
Writer Rachel Trezise was born in the Rhondda valley in south Wales, where she still lives. She studied at Glamorgan and Limerick Universities. Her novel In and Out of the Goldfish Bowl won a place on the Orange Futures List in 2002. Harpers & Queen magazine voted her New Face of Literature, 2003. In 2006, her first short fiction collection Fresh Apples won the Dylan Thomas Prize. She was writer in residence at the University of Texas, Austin in 2007. Her most recent novel is Sixteen Shades of Crazy. A second collection of stories, Cosmic Latte, will be published in Spring 2013.
Director Mathilde López trained at Central Saint Martin’s in Performance Design, has a Masters in Theatre Directing from Birkbeck College and was a founding member of National Theatre Wales, where she was a Creative Associate for two years. Her directing credits include: Cien Años (London/Prague), Yvonne, Princess Of Burgundy (Hoxton Hall), Hotel Europa, La Suspension Du Plongeur and Prometheus Bound (Cochrane Theatre/Hoxton Hall), Crosswired (East London Dance/Barbican Centre), Serious Money (Waking Exploits), De Gabay development weeks (National Theatre Wales), Man On The Moon (George Orange/Wales Millennium Centre), and Pornography (Waking Exploits). Her theatre company August 012 focuses on staging international contemporary plays in Wales, and will open Who Killed The Elephant? (Chapter) a new piece from Hong Kong in February 2013 and Caligula in April 2013 (Chapter)
The Park & Dare Theatre dominates the skyline of Treorchy, in the Rhondda fawr valley. Its construction in 1913 was funded by the miners of the local Park & Dare Collieries. Owned and operated by Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC Cultural Services, together with the Coliseum Theatre, Aberdare and the Muni Arts Centre Pontypridd, it forms RCT Theatres – an ACW Revenue Funded organisation. Tonypandemonium and NTW’s residency at the theatre are two of the many events and productions planned to celebrate its centenary in 2013. Full details of all the celebrations can be found on the RCT Theatres website at www.rct-arts.co.uk.
