A Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and Os Nad Nawr production, in association with the National Eisteddfod of Wales, with support from Wales Millennium Centre and University of South Wales

Ari is not your usual donkey; she was raised in a cosy home by a kind old lady. Now living in a donkey farm somewhere in West Wales, she yearns for a life once more among humans.

After being bought by a new owner, an unexpected friendship grows between her and an unruly, rebellious donkey, and Ari is suddenly aware of her captivity.

Faced with a chance to escape, will Ari choose freedom beyond the open gate? Or will years of servitude and the comfort allowed to her by her oppressors hold her back?

Directed by Steffan Donnelly, with live music, this new production - brimming with humour, satire and song – will charm and provoke audiences this summer.


Steffan Donnelly, Director of Gwlad yr Asyn tells you what you can expect from the show

This is a ‘bring your own chair’ event – we don’t have any seating available for our outdoor performances, so please bring along a camping chair if you have one. Other seating options are allowed: rugs, blankets, mats, stools, thrones, sofas (it’s probably best sticking to the most portable option though).

Any questions or problems booking?
