The Mirror Crack’d gan Agatha Christie yn dod i’r llwyfan

Mirror-Crack'd-1080x1080Mae Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru a Wiltshire Creative yn falch o gyhoeddi’r addasiad i lwyfan cyntaf yng ngwledydd Prydain o The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side, y nofel gyffro Miss Marple boblogaidd gan Agatha Christie.

Bydd stori ddirgel eiconig Marple, gan yr awdur sydd wedi gwerthu’r mwyaf o lyfrau erioed, yn cael ei haddasu ar gyfer y llwyfan gan Rachel Wagstaff  a’i chyfarwyddo gan Melly Still. Dyma fydd y dangosiad cyntaf o The Mirror Crack’d yn Ewrop, a bydd yn agor yn y Playhouse, Caersallog ar 15 Chwefror, cyn teithio i Ddulyn, Caergrawnt a Chaerdydd. Bydd Noson Agoriadol The Mirror Crack’d ar 25 o Fawrth.

Meddai Graeme Farrow, Cyfarwyddwr Artistig Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru:
“Rydyn ni’n llawn cyffro wrth feddwl am ddod â Marple ddeinamig a hynod fodern i’r llwyfan, a chael gweithio unwaith eto gyda Rachel Wagstaff a Melly Still. Dyma hefyd fydd ein cywaith cyntaf gyda Wiltshire Creative. Mae cyd-gynhyrchu ar draws gwledydd a rhanbarthau yn arbennig o bwysig er mwyn creu gwaith newydd heddiw. Rydyn ni’n gobeithio y bydd The Mirror Crack’d yn cynnig tro newydd yn y stori i gefnogwyr Agatha Christie, ac yn denu cynulleidfaoedd newydd at ei gwaith.”

Student volunteers taking Centre stage

This year, during the week commencing 19 February, students will be encouraged to give a little back to the community as part of student volunteer week. To celebrate the 17th anniversary of student volunteer week, we thought we’d share a profile of one or our volunteers, to show you that volunteering is not just something you do for other’s. Lauren Thornell, a music student at Cardiff university and a regular on our volunteer scheme, took the time to speak to us about her work here.
