The future lies in her hands….

Easter 1230 and an uneasy truce exists between a divided Wales and England. At the court of the charismatic Prince of North Wales, a catastrophe is about to unfold and dreams of a united Wales will crumble.

The Royal Bed is Siôn Eirian’s masterful English language adaptation of the Welsh classic, Siwan, by renowned Welsh playwright Saunders Lewis. Set in medieval Wales, it is a heartbreaking tale of the disintegration of a marriage played out against a backdrop of political intrigue.

With live music and BAFTA Cymru Best Actress winner Eiry Thomas as Siwan this world stage premiere of The Royal Bed is an unmissable opportunity for an English language audience to experience a powerful Welsh classic.

Supported by the Welsh Government and the Arts Council of Wales through the National Performing Arts Touring scheme.
