The Cardiff Tapes

Thu 19 - Sat 21 September

‘There’s not much beauty in it. I can’t see no beauty at all in that.’

In 1972 Garth Evans created a large-scale sculpture that was placed in The Hayes, Cardiff for six months as part of a groundbreaking, UK-wide sculpture project.

Garth chose Cardiff as the location for his work as he had very strong family connections with Wales and his Welsh grandfather’s tales of his time as a miner were hugely influential on the sculpture’s form – evoking both a hammer-like tool and the image of a mine tunnel that was as black as coal.

The day after the sculpture was installed, Garth anonymously recorded the comments of passers-by and the transcript of these fascinating recordings forms the basis of this original play.

Adapted by award-winning writer Leila Philip, this production is directed by Wayne Vincent and presented in partnership with Everyman Theatre.
