Starring Owen Shiers and Gwilym Morus-Baird
Gadael Tir is a bilingual show that tells the story of land rights and protest in Wales. It follows the trials and tribulations of the common folk who strove to build the nation from the ground up. Gadael Tir tells their story through sing-along choruses of traditional songs; heart wrenching tales of desperation and perseverance; cross-dressing, axe wielding farmers; radical preachers, land workers and unions, all encompassed by a thousand years of history squeezed into one performance.
Originally funded by Arts Council Wales and Creu Cymru, the performers set out to find Welsh folk music and stories that hadn’t seen the light of day in centuries. The production is based on the same concept as Three Acres and a Cow and the creator Robin Grey, worked closely with the artists.
