A PLAY exploring Wales' relationship with Europe is heading to North Wales next month.

PowderHouse, the company in residence at Cardiff's Sherman Theatre, will present and tour their its full production this May.

Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits receives its world premiere at Sherman Theatre, Cardiff on May 1.

It will head out on tour and be performed at Theatr Clwyd, in Mold, on Tuesday, May 7.

Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits has been created in association with Sherman Theatre and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.

It uses blistering live music and striking imagery blended with Welsh, English, Spanish and Basque to tell the story of an impassioned young man traveling to Spain to fight for his beliefs.

Untrained, untested and totally unprepared, he faces a radical choice between idealism and action.

Between 1936-39, some 300 people from Wales enlisted into the International Brigades to fight the rise of fascism in Spain.

In the 80th year since the end of the Spanish Civil War, at this time of political uncertainty, PowderHouse use the story of one man’s fight to explore the relationship between Wales and Europe in a time of crisis.

PowderHouse co-founder Chelsey Gillard said: "Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits will be an explosion of sound and image, exploring what it is to have a political voice in Wales and the wider world today.

"The dynamic physical storytelling and live music will mean that the show can be understood by anyone who speaks one, two, or even none of the languages used in the piece."
