The Royal Bed archiveEaster 1230, an uneasy truce exists between a divided Wales and England and at the court of the charismatic Prince of North Wales a catastrophe is about to unfold and dreams of a united Wales will crumble... At the centre of Saunders Lewis's play is Siwan, illegitimate daughter of King John and passionate, outspoken and politically astute wife of Llywelyn the Great. Set in Medieval Wales, the play tells the story of her adulterous affair with the young Marcher Lord, Gwilyn Brewys, and the terrible revenge exacted by her enraged husband when he discovers the lovers in the royal bed, the consequences of which reverberate down the centuries to contemporary Wales. Theatr Pena's third co-production with The Riverfront in association with the Torch Theatre Milford Haven is a classic Welsh story. The Royal Bed by Sion Eirian, an English language adaptation of Siwan by Saunders Lewis.
Performers Eiry Thomas (Siwan), Hannah O'Leary (Alis), Francois Pandolfo (Gwilym Brewys), Russell Gomer (Llywelyn), Buddug Verona James (mezzo soprano), Delyth Jenkins (Celtic Harp).
