“Cadoc and the Drowned Boys”-New Play Coming to St Cadoc’s Church Glynneath

Play based on USW research explores ancient tale of Welsh saint

A comedy drama based on research by a University of South Wales professor seeks to unravel the history of St Cadoc, the founder of Christianity in Wales.

Cadoc and the Drowned Boys is a play written by award-winning playwright and director Vic Mills, inspired by the research and poetry of his brother, Professor Kevin Mills, and explores the life of the 5th century Abbot.

The play  opened at Blackwood Little Theatre on Friday 5 July, before touring seven churches across South Wales which were named after St Cadoc.
