About The Show
National Theatre Wales
Written by Peter Cox
Directed by Kully Thiarai
Peter Cox’s one-man show, is a heart-warming and heart-breaking tribute to hill-farming communities across Wales and their strength, endurance and determination to survive, even when the odds against them seem impossible.
Shepherd Geth Roberts might be getting on in years, but he still lives alone, high in the Elan Valley. A born storyteller, he’s spent his whole life working his wild and windswept farm.
But now Geth faces his greatest challenge: his sight is failing and if he can’t see, then he can’t work the farm.
The Stick Maker Tales was originally commissioned as part of National Theatre Wales’ NHS70 Festival in July 2018, performed in Llandrindod Wells and Welshpool, Powys.
