-- Swansea playwright Liz Wride is to debut her new drama ‘Hearts of Oak’ at the Dylan Thomas Centre on Sunday 28 October.
‘Hearts of Oak’ is a story of turmoil, love and hatred set in the Smalls Lighthouse off the south west coast of Wales where two men become marooned with nothing for company but their mutual dislike.
Haunted by the memories of those they knew on shore, the men begin to question whether they will ever leave the lighthouse alive.
This premiere performance will be presented script-in-hand and directed by acclaimed playwright D.J. Britton.
Liz said “I’m delighted to be part of the Dylan Thomas Festival as it brings together so many art forms, and it's exciting to be part of something that involves so many great artists.
“It's rather surreal and a privilege to think that my work is now part of a festival that I've attended as an audience-member”
Tickets for ‘Hearts of Oak’ are £6, £4.20 for concessions and £2.40 PTL. They are available from the Box Office on 01792 463980 or online at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/dylanthomas
