Rahm Emmanuel was the White House Chief of Staff during Barack Obama’s first term and he coined the maxim “never let a good crisis go to waste”. He urged that an unexpected crisis be seen as a chance to implement solutions which would previously not have been possible.

That’s the thesis of this new play dealing with the political make-up of the Welsh Assembly following the 2016 elections. The government is thrown into crisis when the majority Labour group is unable to pass its annual budget. The fragile consensus in the Bay fragments. Gwyn Davies, the new young leader of Plaid Cymru returns from an overseas visit to take advantage of the ensuing chaos. In the course of one tempestuous night he and his artful and fiery wife Ellie plan a new departure for their party and for Welsh politics. But there are two unexpected visitors to their apartment in the Bay, both threatening to destroy the political and personal futures of Gwyn and Ellie.

Please note: This is a Welsh language production
