Theatr Clwyd & Pontio first co-production

December 20, 2018 by

Llew a’r Crydd, a  new show in the Welsh language and the first co-production between Theatr Clwyd and Pontio will open in the New Year in Mold after its run in Bangor.

What happens to stories once they’ve been told? Where do they live? Where do they go?

Find out as two of the leading theatres in North Wales present their new show for younger children age 4 – 7.

Two siblings travel around the world collecting stories to stop them from getting lost. One night, unable to sleep, they tell a story, a story of Llew, a mean old cobbler, a magic elf, and a Princess who just wants to dance. This magical adventure is told through music, storytelling and the odd, and they are very odd, looking puppets.



Llew a’r Crydd is the first ever co-production between two of the biggest theatres in north Wales. It plays at Pontio until Saturday 22 December and then runs at Theatr Clwyd, 2-6 January.

Written and directed by Emyr John, it is performed by actors Siôn Eifion and Siôn Emyr. Theatr Clwyd’s Creative Engagement Associate, Emyr is a writer, actor and director who has been working in Wales for the past 25 years.


Llew a’r Crydd is Theatr Clwyd’s third production of a bumper festive season, following Dick Whittington The Purrrrrfect Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto andHansel & Gretel Fairytale Detectives.
