About Author

Roger Owen is a lecturer in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television at University of Wales, Aberystwyth. He is the author of several articles on the history of theatre in Wales, the most recent of which can be found in The Cambridge History of British Theatre Vol 4.


This is the first detailed analysis of the Welsh-language theatre of the last quarter of the twentieth century. The introduction outlines the background, concentrating in the main on the role of Cwmni Theatr Cymru in the 1960's and 1970's and the loss of that company's hegemony as the foremost Welsh-language professional theatre company. Other chapters look at popular political theatre (Bara Caws, Theatr Gorllewin Morgannwg); the development of 'poor' theatre (Cwmni Cyfri Tri, Brith Gof); the mainstream tradition (Theatrig, Cwmni Theatre Gwynedd); Hwyl a Fflag and Dalier Sylw and the emphasis on the production and performance of new drama. Although the focus is on individual theatre companies the discussion is enhanced by an informed use of the contemporary cultural and political context. The conclusion will also include some discussion of the theatre post 1997.
