CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
The show tells the story of Dic Penderyn a Welsh labourer and coal miner who lived in Merthyr Tydfil who was involved with the Merthyr Rising of 3 June 1831. In the course of the riot he was arrested alongside Lewis Lewis, one of the primary figures in the uprising, and charged with stabbing a soldier with a bayonet. The people of Merthyr Tydfil doubted his guilt, and signed a petition for his release. However, he was found guilty and hanged on 13 August. After his death he was treated as a martyr in Merthyr and across Britain.Performers Cameron Potts (Richard Lewis), Lily De-La-Haye (Angharad), Nicky Taliesin (Lewis Lewis), Katy Treharne (Rebecca), Michael Robert-Lowe (Jenkins), Daniel Hall (Josiah Guest), Andrew Truluck (William Crawshay), Dylan Wynford (Sean), Emma Hickey (Elizabeth), Michael Hutchings (Morgan), Leah Pinney (Myfanwy), colin Middleton (Seamus), Bethan Fflint (Mari), Aaron Bannister-Davies (Tomos), Michael Larcombe (Jonathan), Hollie Evans (Megan), Tom Blackmore (Ianto), Ceris Hine (Arianwen).
