Are you 'Thespis' or 'Un o'r Cwm'?

16 December 2016

The National Eisteddfod has launched an appeal to try and find two competitors who took part in the 2012 Eisteddfod at the Vale of Glamorgan.

‘Thespis’ and ‘Un o’r Cwm’ both translated Edward Albee’s classic ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’, in the drama translating competition, and although unsuccessful they both received positive adjudications.

Eisteddfod Organiser, Elen Elis, says, “We’ve received a request for a Welsh version of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’, and we need the translator’s permission.  Every playwright and translator’s hope is that their work will see the light of day, and we need to speak to ‘Thespis’ and ‘Un o’r Cwm’ to help make this happen.

“As neither writer won the competition, the work and the sealed envelopes – unopened – with their contact details have been stored at the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth, and this is why we’re appealing publicly for ‘Thespis’ and ‘Un o’r Cwm’ to get in touch.”

‘Thespis’ and ‘Un o’r Cwm’ should contact Sioned Edwards at the Eisteddfod office by emailing sioned@eisteddfod.org.uk or ringing the office on 0845 4090 300.
