Alys Conran’s novel, Pigeon, has been adapted for the stage by Bethan Marlow and is currently touring Wales until March 25th.
The Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Theatr Iolo production, in association with Pontio began its tour last night in Bangor and will be performed in several theatres across Wales including in Cardiff, Llanelli and Aberystwyth.
Pijin/Pigeon is “set in the shadow of the north Wales slate quarries in the early 1990s, and is a gripping tale about growing up, the power of words, friendship and just how far people will go for love.
“Welsh and English are subtly woven together, and every performance will use integrated captioning in both Welsh and English.”
Congratulations to Alys; we hope the adaptation brings lots of new readers to her work.
