The Land of My Fathers and Mothers and Some Other People
THE LAND OF MY FATHERS AND MOTHERS AND SOME OTHER PEOPLE Celebrate St David's day by getting cwtchy with award-winning Rhys Slade-Jones. Presenting an all-singing, all-dancing re-enactment of his Mam’s diary - a frenzied solo cabaret mixing stand-up, dance and good ol’ fashioned singalong, bringing 1977 Treherbert Rugby Club back to life Tickets via Outsavvy £3 all proceeds to Rhondda Cynon Taff food banks In Treherbert Rugby Club amongst the fag smoke and the singing, Rhys’s parents fell in love. Rhys has never fallen in love but heard it’s a nice thing to do because that’s what his Mam said. It’s in her diary. And Rhys has read it all. Award-winning performance artist Rhys Slade-Jones takes their audience to the hot sweaty summer of 1977. By reading his Mam’s diary, Rhys explores the claustrophobic, nosey, loving, loud, beautiful community of the Rhondda Valley, and tells us why dancing in the same spot your parents met is pretty bloody cool. Expect great legs, a one-man pantomime horse and a good ol’ fashioned singalong. “Natural performer and adept storyteller… Raw, at times aggressive, but always heartfelt.” ★★★★★ Edinburgh Festival Mag “Truthful, friendly, authentic.. Land of My Fathers is a tender and communal experience which definitely shouldn’t be missed.” ★★★★★ Voice Magazine “A highly enjoyable hour in the company of a very funny man.” ★★★★ British Theatre.com “He’s an easy-going performer, always ready with a raised eyebrow and a knowing look.” ★★★★ The Stage Rhys Slade-Jones is a bold emerging queer artist from South Wales, cross-disciplinary working through theatre, cabaret and craft. Rhys learnt tits and teeth showman ship from pub singers and psychic mediums. Rhys’ performances tread the line between cozy and confrontational, making work that’s fun, silly and full of heart. Expect singalongs, stripping and the best legs west of the Severn Bridge. All proceeds will be donated to help support the efforts of Rhondda Cynon Taff food banks.
