Theatr Ffynnon is a unique community arts theatre company working primarily with adults and young people with learning disabilities, and is recognised as a model of best practice in supporting the development of a disability arts culture in Wales and beyond.
We exist to enrich the lives of people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues, by providing development opportunities through training and participation in the visual and performing arts. Through such diverse opportunities, we endeavour to change perceptions within the communities we work, by promoting a greater understanding and engagement.
“…an excellent performing company whose work is needed in Wales. Fresh, inspiring and highly professional…”
Theatr Ffynnon is currently about to start working on an exciting new project “House for Sale” with Creative Associate/ Director, James Williams & Director of Theatr Ffynnon Patricia O’Sullivan.

James will work closely with the core tutors, Lisa Harris, Alastair Sill , & Angharad Evans of Theatr Ffynnon at weekly workshops with the members from Risca, Chepstow and Abergavenny over an 8 month period.
The creative team in consultation with the members will develop & create ideas on the above topics, using movement, music, film and drama that will lead to a 2 week residency and rehearsals and culminate in a performance (dates to be confirmed) from Monday 7th October.
