The Boy and the Lion’s Head

Thursday 27 September

National Waterfront Museum

Against the backdrop of Kilvey Hill, Eastside Swansea, a grandfather’s stories about being a soldier during the First World War shadow the imagination of his lonely grandson. Will the boy touch the Lion’s Head and will the sun fall from the sky?

Peter Thabit Jones’ verse drama about the dying days of a soldier, and its impact on a young Swansea boy.
