Span Arts Theatre – Bynji Jymping a Monologau eraill
Fri 26 Mar @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
SPAN is calling all Friends in Need this Spring!
Span Arts, a community arts charity based in Pembrokeshire, West Wales is bringing another Theatr Soffa production to your sitting rooms this month! Following on from the success of “Chwedlau’r Cyfnod Clo: Bara a Babanod”, Dracula and Dan y Wenallt to name a few, Span Arts are looking forward to staging a Welsh-language livestreamed community performance in collaboration with Menter Iaith Sir Benfro and Cered together via video calls on Friday 26th March at 7.30pm.
The next fantastic production will be an adaptation of Gareth Owen’s hilarious “Bynji Jymping a Monologau eraill” – Bynji Jymping a Straeon eraill. A cast of actors of all ages from 17 to over 70, based in rural communities across Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire are taking to the virtual stage and bringing all of its rip-roaring characters to life!
“I like acting and performing so Theatr Soffa is a great opportunity to perform in a completely different way!”
“The best thing was meeting new people from different backgrounds and having fun in rehearsals, improving my technical skills and having the opportunity to do something completely new and different.”
ABOUT BYNJI JYMPING
This adaptation follows Gwynn Williams, his “Musus” and son, Jo, and all of the amusing and humorous characters and situations that surround them. It’s very Welsh humor, ‘in the unique style of writers such as Wil Sam, Harri Parri and C’Mon Midffîld’. We look forward to putting a side-splitting performance together to bring some much-needed joy this Spring!
About Theatr Soffa:
Theatr Soffa was initially conceived by SPAN to creatively connect rurally isolated and housebound individuals across Pembrokeshire with the arts with more innovative use of technology.
The project has already proved to be a huge success, with four productions having already taken place across two Welsh lockdowns. Participants have all reported an improvement in their feelings of wellbeing, and reductions in loneliness with many of the cast members making new friendships through their online rehearsals. Having a regular activity to take part in and a common goal has given many people something to look forward to, and we hope that to bring as many people together as possible who might be feeling lonely or isolated at this time.
