About

Arweinydd Cwrs/Course Leader BA Theatr a Drama
Rwyf wedi gweithio a theithio yn eang (Cymru, yr Alban, Iwerddon, Llydaw, Yr Eidal, Yr iseldiroedd, Hong Kong) fel perfformwraig gyda sawl cwmni theatr gan gynwys gweithio ar nifer o brosiectau dros gyfnod o ddeng mlynedd gyda chwmni Brith Gof.
Rwyf wedi ysgrifennu ar gyfer y theatr a theledu. Mae 25ain o fy nramau wedi cael eu cynhyrchu a’u teithio yn broffesiynnol. Bu dwy o fy nramau ar gwricwlwm cenedlaethol TGAU Drama yn Gymraeg ac yn Saesneg, ac mae un ohonynt ar gwricwlwm cenedlaethol lefel A Cymraeg ail iaith ar hyn o bryd. Mae rhan fwyaf o fy nramau wedi eu cyfieithu i’r saesneg a rhai wedi eu cyfieithu i’r Almaeneg ac i’r Hwngareg a’u cynhyrchu yn yr Almaen, Hwngari, Awstria a Korea. Cyrhaeddodd Crash restr fer yr Brian Way Award (sy’n dathlu yr ysgrifenu gorau i gynulleidfa ifanc ym Mhrydain).
Rwyf wedi cyfarwyddo oddeutu 35 o gynhyrchiadau proffesiynnol gan gynwys gwaith i Brith Gof, Theatr Iolo, Theatr Gwent, Theatr Clwyd, Y Sherman, Y Gymraes, ac yn fwyaf diweddar Mwnci ar Dan/Burning Monkey i Arad Goch, ynghyd a llu o gynhyrchiadau myfyrwyr. Cafodd fy nghynhyrchiad o Mab i Y Gymraes ei wobrwyo fel Cynhyrchiad gorau 2001 gan Gwobrau Theatr Cymru.
I’ve worked and toured (Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Italy, Holland and Hong Kong) as a performer with numerous theatre companies including a large number of productions over a period of 10 years with Brith Gof.
I’ve written for the theatre and TV.
25 of my plays have been produced and toured professionally. Two of my plays have been on the GCSE Drama curriculum, and another is on the A level Welsh as a Second Language curriculum currently. Most of my plays are translated into English and some into German and Hungarian and have been produced in Germany, Hungary, Austria and Korea. Crash was short-listed for the Brian Way Award which celebrates the best British writing for young audiences.
I have directed 35 professional touring productions, including work for Brith Gof, Theatre Iolo, Theatre Gwent, Theatre Clwyd, the Sherman, Y Gymraes and most recently Burning Monkey/Mwnci ar Dan for Arad Goch, as well as working as associate director/director on several large scale site specific works. My production of Mab was awarded Best Welsh language Production prize 2001 by the Welsh Theatre Awards.
