Critics Choice: Silverglass, Taliesin Arts Centre
The team behind last years wonderful Lloyd George play The Wizard, The Goat And The Man Who Won The War have reunited for a new show to kicks off Swansea University's Rhys Davies short story conference this weekend.
D.J.Britton's new play Silverglass sees him reunited with Bafta-winning actor Richard Elfyn, alongside fellow award winner Eiry Thomas, for a play, about the mysterious and electric friendship between Valleys writer Rhys Davies and cult literary heroine Anna Kavan.
"In rehearsal, Eiry and Richard do things I wouldn't have thought possible, switching from comedy to deep pain on the turn of a heel" says Britton.
"It's a high-energy piece and they manage to combine pace with grace quite astoundingly."
Rhys Davies was a master-craftsman of Welsh fiction, combining pin-point observation of Valleys life with a twinkling sense of humour. Kavan wrote dark and troubled novels described by J.G. Ballard as "somewhere between poetry and madness".
The show will be followed by a public discussion session for those who want to stay.
