Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming
Adventures in Dreaming
National Theatre Wales
Rhyl is a town of many tales; a treasure trove of stories.
It is summer, now and then. Families spend hours playing on the beach. A young man pops his cherry and skips all the way back to Liverpool. Dreamers escape to Rhyl for the promise of a new life, while others watch their childhood home change around them.
Drawing upon Rhyl and its people for inspiration, Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming is a voyage of discovery and memory, a collision of the past and the present; celebrating a place and a people on the cusp of change and transformation.
This is an experience that will lead you on a guided journey taking in the surprising places and spaces of Rhyl. Together we can imagine and dream.
