The work, The Wizard, The Goat And The Man Who Won The War, was trialled at Swansea's Dylan Thomas centre before being launched at the Taliesin Arts Centre last year.

Swansea poet and writer, Nigel Jenkins, said: "This is quite simply the most intelligent, absorbing and moving piece of theatre I have seen for years, thanks to a superb script and an electrifying performance by Richard Elfyn who played not only Lloyd George but all the other characters — men, women and children; Welsh, English and French."
