Heritage Theatr Cymru Presents

 Through Our Eyes

Wednesday, 17 April, 8:00 P.M.

 

The evening is generously offered by Heritage Theatr Cymru
to raise funds for Pieta House, CorHeritage Theatr Cymru's play, Through Our Eyes, by Arlene Pryce, is coming to Anam Cara to share their latest theatrical work and to raise money for Pieta House, Cork. This all-female cast presents a series of stories about women, for this play, in Wales; some of them famous and others long forgotten. The play provides snapshots of their lives in Victorian society and explores the challenges for women in that era and explores a range of Victorian scenes, including: the female expertise in rural crafts, women’s roles of caring for others and female struggle for identity.

It speaks to all of us of our female heritage and current issues of women today where it essentially asks what it is to be a woman. The company are all professionally trained actresses, with a range of experiences in theatre and education. They are the resident theatre company in the Redhouse Arts Centre in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.

Heavy Snowfall in Eyeries!

We do not see snow very often in Eyeries because of its coastal location close to the warm Gulf Stream current in the Atlantic Ocean.  


On 2nd March 2018, the heaviest snow for a very long time (perhaps since 1947) covered the village and surrounding countryside. Fluffy, snowy bliss was enjoyed by all for a perfect short spell whilst much of the rest of the country endured the unpleasant side of heavy snow for much longer.
