The Wolf Tattoo by Lucy Gough

Company of Sirens present this Welsh premier

Directed by Chris Durnall

Graf and Rose are seventeen and in love. She is pregnant; he is part of a gang that pack at night out on the concrete wasteland, dressed in real wolf skins.

Language is breaking down and survival is a struggle.

If I walk out of here without my skin on. If I walk out of here without belonging to a pack I am just dead meat

Lucy Gough’s new play The Wolf Tattoo is about love and survival and what it is that makes us human.

Lucy Gough has been awarded a Creative Wales Award to explore the role of the writer in Physical theatre and a Granada Artists Award (California). Lucy was also a finalist for the BBC Wales Writer of the Year Award, the BBC Wales Drama Award and the Nick Darke Award. She has written extensively for Theatre, Television and Radio

Company of Sirens have presented acclaimed Welsh premiers of new work by authors including Philip Ridley, Anthony Neilson, Jennifer Hailey, Neil Labute and Ian Rowlands. The company are recognised for simple effective staging and uncompromising visceral productions.


The production will be supported by four practical workshops exploring the text and demonstrating the techniques developed during the company’s recent development period. These workshops in Chapter will be open to all including deaf performers and will demonstrate how character can be developed from physical impulse. Click here to book tickets to the workshop.
