Drama: Gweithdy Dirty Protest Workshop

On the 12th of October, Branwen Davies contacted asking if I’d be interested in joining a workshop Dirty Protest – a theatre comapny working to promote new writing. I agreed, despite having neglected my creative writing for quite a while, and was incredibly glad I did!

Not only did I get to meet local writers in Aberystwyth – something I need to make more of an effort to do! – I was also, as was everyone else, challenged to write a 3 minute play in 3 hours. It sounds a lot easier than it is!

The plays were then going to be performed in the evening – which was amazing, and it was one of the first times I’d ever seen my work properly performed.

I decided to try something new and experiment with both languages, introducing a lonely Welsh man, Owain, who buys himself the monolingual robot,  Robo720X.

I hope that I’ll get another chance to work on Owain’s story, and hope he does find a way, one day, to ‘siarad shit’ with his robot!

Ar y 12fed o Hydref derbyniais wahoddiad i fynychu gweithdy sgriptio gyda chriw Dirty Protest. Roedd hi’n braf gael cymysgu gydag awduron eraill – rhywbeth sydd wir angen i mi wneud yn amlach! – ynghyd a ymestyn yr hen fysyls sgrifennu, a oedd wedi bod yn segur ers llawer yn rhy hir!

Yr her oedd cynhyrchu drama fer 3 munud o hyd mewn 3 awr – tasg llawer anoddach na’r disgwyl!

Penderfynais drio rywbeth newydd a bwrw ati i lunio drama ddwyieithog, gyda Chymro unig yn prynu robot yn ffrind iddo’i hun, ond yn methu ei raglenni i siarad Cymraeg. Wrth reswm, roedd yna dipyn o rwystredigaeth ar ran Owain, y dyn a oedd eisiau sgwrs gall yn Gymraeg gyda’i robot!

Gobeithiaf gael gweithio eto ar y pwt o ddrama hon, ac ymestyn stori Owain rhywbryd yn y dyfodol.
