Clwyd Theatr Cymru

An original darkly comic new play about new comers to the Welsh countryside and the way of life a farmer holds dear; premiering at Theatre Clywd in October 2010.

The trees will go.
All of them, I'm afraid.
The trees my mother planted.
And that hedge too.


Kate and Tom with their troubled daughter Evie decide to leave the London rat race and start afresh in the peace of the countryside.
They buy a farmhouse in Wales.

Reviews

his hugely enjoyable comedy of bad town-and-country manners is a reminder of what a singular voice he is, capable of prodding at all our hypocrisies and showing the worst, but also the best, of which we are all capable ... There's much fun to be had Lyn Gardner
The Guardian

(it's the) expertly handled broad comedy that makes Gary Owen’s culture clash so funny and so hugely entertaining. Victor Hallett
