Woman of Flowers

Woman of Flowers

Details

Theatr Pena return with the Company’s first co-production with Taliesin Arts Centre, a dynamic and visually rich production of a very ancienttale of betrayal and retribution. Woman of Flowers is a strikingly poetic reimagining of the Mabinogi myth of Blodeuwedd by award-winning Welsh writer Siôn Eirian in which he skilfully combines Saunders Lewis’s Welsh language verse drama of the same name with original material to create a captivating dark fantasy.

Blodeuwedd isn’t like other women. Conjured from wild flowers by the wizard Gwydion to be the perfect wife for the warrior prince Llew, nature’s wild waves surge in her blood and when the dark desires woven into her nature are awakened the consequences are bloody for all around her.
