Date - 31 August, 2012, All News Opening Nights Theatre
Simon Watts | Sainou Talent Agency London

Simon Watts reprises his role of Aneurin in the critically acclaimed drama Llwyth [Tribe] which opens this evening.

Originally a co-production between Sherman Cymru and Theatr Genedlaethol, the play has travelled to the Taipei Arts Festival which is now in its 14th year, continuing a tradition of presenting the very best in local and international work.

Llwyth is a bold, provocative look at what it means to be Welsh, to belong, to be a man and to love.


Simon Watts is best known for his role as series regular Gethin Thomas in the long-running Welsh series Pobol Y Cwm. Other television credits include Rocket Man, Y Pris and series regular in Treflan.

Theatre credits include Llwyth at the Sherman Theatre, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Julius Caesar both for the RSC, The Happiest Days Of Your Life at the Royal Exchange and Porth Y Byddar at the National Theatre of Wales.
