Has Welsh theatre found its voice?

Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru, the Welsh-language national theatre, brilliantly dramatises Wales's tussle of languages and identities – and its ambitions stretch far beyond its own borders


Edinburgh festival 2011: It's a wrap – now how was our performance?

‎"In one of those curious Fringe coincidences, my two standout shows of the festival were Welsh through and through: National Theatre Wales and Told By an Idiot's superbly acted and supremely directed Dark Philosophers, which reached Edinburgh on tour, and one of the last shows I saw, Llwyth (Tribe) co-produced by Sherman Cymru and the Welsh-language Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru – a company whose work I suspect we'll be hearing much more of under its new artistic director Arwel Gruffydd.
