Hollti (Split)

by Manon Wyn Williams

“It’s not us who have a hold over the land, it’s the land that has a hold over us.”

Plans are afoot to build a new nuclear power station on Anglesey. But what effect will Wylfa Newydd have on its nearest neighbours, as the capitalist machine attempts to swallow up a farm that has remained in the same family for generations?

Do we have a choice? How else can we ensure that the light stays on? And don’t we desperately need the jobs?

A bold new verbatim play about a community’s right to shape its own future.

Constructed from interviews with local people, a cast of familiar faces brings to life the arguments for and against this most divisive of issues.

  • Director: Sarah Bickerton (director of Nansi, The National Eisteddfod - Montgomeryshire and the Marches, 2015).
