Siw Hughes plays Mrs Reynolds in the Theatr Genedlaethol production of Mrs Reynolds and the Ruffian which opens this evening.

When Mrs Reynolds’ lovingly tended garden is vandalised. Jay, the guilty and troubled youth is sent back by the authorities to help her fix it.

Two generations locked in battle; little old Mrs Reynolds with her traditional values and “nice little life” vs. the textbook hoodie demanding respect but offering little in return. Just as they think they have the measure of each other, something is revealed and they are both shocked by what they find out.

This contemporary play by one of Wales’ most audacious playwrights – the award-winning Gary Owen – explores human nature and friendship alongside the social climate of modern Wales, giving a warm, funny and insightful glimpse into the way we live now.


Cardiff based actress Siw Hughes is best known for playing Kath Jones in popular BBC Cymru soap Pobol Y Cwm for which she won a Best Actress BAFTA .

Other notable television credits include Gemma Haddon in five series of Gwaith Cartref for which she was again nominated for a Best Actress BAFTA and Deborah Harris in three series of Licyris Olsorts for Teledu Daffodil.

She also works extensively in Welsh theatre, performing with both Theatr na n'Og and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru this year.
