Croendena Baner


Brand new Welsh coming-of-age dramedy.

Seshes in the local. Beach days and body shame. Gossips. Boys on the pull. National Trust car park fumbles.

The summer is here. The gals are ready to party and life is full of possibilities. Some relationships flourish, others falter. But can Nel handle it?

Betsan Ceiriog stars in this brand new Welsh language dramedy about a young girl determined to follow her own path.

This is the latest production from young playwright Mared Llywelyn, one of the most exciting voices in Welsh theatre.

A new commission from Frân Wen, the monodrama is directed by Rhian Blythe.
