About the show
October-November 2011 / In Village Halls across Wales
THE VILLAGE SOCIAL
In October and November 2011, National Theatre Wales took its first musical on the road to village halls across Wales.
The village hall played host to a much-needed fundraising evening of fun and jollity as the winter nights drew in. Music and entertainment from local talent preceded the main attraction: a clairvoyant who promised to put the villagers in touch with spirits from beyond the grave.
Loosely inspired by Euripides’ The Bacchae, the evening’s delights included entry into the raffle, a refreshment of your choice and a depraved orgy of blood.
