Swansea International Festival

Now the Hero / Nawr yr Arwr

Tuesday 25 – Saturday 29 September

Brangwyn Hall

A powerful memorial of conflict, protest, prose and performance, Now the Hero / Nawr yr Arwr is an immersive theatrical experience that takes the audience on an extraordinary journey through three interweaving narratives of war from Celtic times, to the First World War and on to contemporary conflict.

Drawing upon an epic poem, some rejected paintings and an intimate portrait of a serving Swansea soldier, Marc Rees’ bold production brings the stories of war to life with a counterpoint of peace and hope. Using the city as its backdrop, prepare to experience some of the most breathtaking theatre Swansea has ever seen.
