The Rose and Crown

This is a one act play that runs for a little less than an hour.

The setting is the public bar of The Rose and Crown. Into the bar comes an assortment of working-class characters who, with one notable exception, are fed up with life. Their conversations are interrupted by the arrival of a Stranger. Suddenly everyone finds they’ve a reason to live.
Set in post war austerity of 1946, the modern day relevance of the Rose and Crown may surprise you. Stranger things have happened.

We are able to stage this year’s Festival thanks to your ongoing support and thanks to funding by the Third Sector Resilience Fund for Wales Phase 2 Scheme, administered by the WCVA.
