Pen-blwydd Poenus Pete

A sparkling and biting comedy with an outrageous look at family life by the acclaimed playwright Gary Owen.

There’s a family - Mum, Dad, two children and Cadi the cat. Dad says he doesn’t want any fuss at all made for his birthday. So Mum takes him at 
his word: she and the kids don’t do ANYTHING for Dad’s birthday.

But, Dad is furious about no one doing anything for his birthday. And when Dad’s frustrations combine with the Cat’s mischievous power, chaos comes to a family gathering. 

Award winning Theatr Iolo (Winner of Best Play for Children and Young people: Theatre Critics Wales Award 2013) is delighted to present this brand new show for families and schools in the Welsh Language.


Pen-blwydd Poenus Pete offers the perfect opportunity for Welsh speaking and Welsh language learner families of all levels to share a fun filled night out.

Come along to the party before the show and enjoy some entertaining pre-performance family activities designed to enhance the understanding of the language and story of the show, for Welsh learners of all ages.

The free family activities will begin at 5.45pm and last for approximately 30 mins. Numbers will be restricted to 20 so email to book your place. Led by the writer and actor Llinos Mai these party themed activities will take place upstairs in the Theatr foyer.

In addition to the family activities we’ll also have some free Welsh learner resource packs for members of the audience who might want some help during the performance - you can download the learner resource pack using the link to the right.
