On the 8th of March, Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch will be starting to stream performances into schools again, starting with ‘Not Me’.
The production is from Arad Goch's original productions but this time round, there’ll be a few changes. As this is the first time that the drama has been filmed and streamed at Canolfan Arad Goch, it is an important step to bring theatre back to audiences and communities who miss live theatre.
“Contemporary and meaningful theatre for children is so important to their development and helps them to better understand their situation, their community and themselves. In these days of isolation, Arad Goch is delighted to be able to create a new children's production and perform it digitally for schools in Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. The play Not Me is about bullying - both physically and over the internet. And it's about loneliness and offering children solutions to overcome the problems that these things bring.” Said Artistic Director of Arad Goch, Jeremy Turner.
"Thank you to Ceredigion and Carmarthen County Councils for their co-operation and support and to the Arts Council and the Welsh Government for enabling this important work to take place."
The play was originally written by Mari Rhian Owen back in the 90s. The play has been performed several times by Arad Goch in the past, most recently in 2017. The production will be streamed on the AM platform and we are grateful to AM for their co-operation.
