CYSGU’N BRYSUR – A new production for a new year


‘Cysgu’n Brysur’, a bold new Welsh language musical drama, will hit the road in March.


Featuring fiery performances from 11 young actors, cutting edge scriptwriting and iconic choreography based on the brilliant songs of the Welsh-language band ‘Bromas’, the production promises to be a highlight of the Welsh arts calendar during its visit to venues throughout Wales.


Jeremy Turner, Arad Goch’s Artistic Director and Cysgu’n Brysur’s Director describes the production as a contemporary Welsh-language show about being young in Wales the 21st Century:

“It’s about the affairs and the flirting, the angst, the gangs and the wild parties in the forest. It dramatizes the morals and immoralities of being young, the frustrations with adults and the fears and the dreams of young people” he said, adding that “there are very few, if any, productions on the scale and of this nature for young Welsh audiences”.


‘Cysgu’n Brysur’ is co-produced by Arad Goch, Wales Millennium Centre and Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Louise Miles-Crust, Head of Programming at Wales Millennium Centre, commented: “We’re thrilled to be working with Arad Goch on this project. They have an excellent reputation of producing high quality work and our organisations share similar ambitions. These include creating ‘Made in Wales’ theatre, promoting Welsh language and culture, and nurturing young Welsh talent - all key components of Cysgu’n Brysur”.


In addition to the production itself, a dedicated website cysgunbrysur.cymru is now live containing a range of information about the production. A number of brand-new ‘remixes’ of a number of Bromas’s songs have also been commissioned by the artists Roughion, Martin Kinnear and Ifan Dafydd. The first of these remixes, by all of the artists of the song ‘Fersiwn o Fi, will be available on cysgunbrysur.cymru on 13 January with other remixes to follow.
To complete the package, the company will also hold a series of ‘Open Rehearsals’ at various schools.


‘Cysgu’n Brysur’ features the actors Tom Conwy, Anni Dafydd, Aaron Davies, Guto Wynne Davies, Gareth Elis, Mirain Fflur, Osian Garmon, Gwawr Keyworth, Rhianna Loren, Caitlin McKee, and Lynwen Haf Roberts. The script is by Bethan Marlow, choreography by Eddie Ladd with Rhys Taylor as Musical Director.


The tour kicks off at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre on the 8th and 9th of March and ends with a week long run at the Wales Millennium Centre between the 21st and 26th. Performances at Carmarthen, Rhyl and Caernarfon make up the remainder of the tour.
