October 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£12
Mae Mewn Cymeriad yn dod a monolog bendigedig arall i Gastell Aberteifi, Cranogwen.
Morwres. Ysgolfeistres. Bardd. Darlithydd. Pregethwr. Golygydd. Ymgyrchydd. Ffrind.
Mewn oes pan oedd disgwyl i ferched eistedd adref yn gwnio’n dawel fe gymerodd y ferch arbennig hon lwybr gwbl wahanol i’w chyfoedion. Yn 26 oed roedd wedi cael ei chadeirio yn fardd, er syndod mawr i bob un dyn a gystadlodd, a hynny am ysgrifennu cerdd am briodas er na phriododd hi erioed ei hun. Daeth Sarah Jane Rees yn enwog nid yn unig yng Nghymru ond ym mhrif ddinasoedd Lloegr ac America. Ond eto ar ôl yr holl deithio a’r areithio dod yn ôl i’w milltir sgwar fyddai hi bob tro – i Langrannog. Pam tybed? Dyma sioe am ferch unigryw, amryddawn ac annisgwyl. Dyma hanes Cranogwen.
In Character bring another of their wonderful monologue productions to Cardigan Castle with Cranogwen.
Sailor. School Mistress. Poet. Lecturer. Preacher. Editor. Campaigner. Friend.
At a time when women were expected to stay at home, quietly sewing, this special woman took a very different path. At the age of 26, she became a chief poet, much to the amazement of every man that applied, for her poem on marriage, though she herself never married. Sarah Jane Rees became famous not only in Wales but in major English cities and in parts of America. But yet, after all her travels and preachings she would always return to her square mile – to Llangrannog. Why? A show about an unique woman, multi talented and unusual. Here’s the story of Cranogwen.
