A show honours tragedy

A show honours tragedy

South Wales Evening Post, 15 March 2010

MEMORIES of the Aberfan disaster will be invoked to help boost the Haiti Earthquake Appeal next week.

Young actors of Swansea-based Class Act Theatre School (CATS) have put together a special show of mini-monologues recalling the 1966 coal-tip tragedy.

Their hour-long piece, called The Sixties v The Noughties, is free to watch, but those attending will be invited to donate to the Disaster Emergency Committee’s Haiti fund.

CATS production co-director Kayte Walsh said her students, aged between seven and 10, had put a lot of hard work into the piece.

“As January’s earthquake will become part of Haiti’s history, Aberfan will always be a key moment in the story of Wales,” she said.

The Sixties v The Noughties takes place at Pontardawe Arts Centre from 2pm on Saturday, March 13.
