Llwybr Efnisien

1 May 2007 | Category: Shows

“Llwybr Efnisien” (the path of Efnisien) is based on the story of Branwen, from the Mabinogion. This young company will lead us through the ancient tale of love between Branwen, the sister of Bendigeidfran, and Matholwch, the King of Ireland. Their romance brings hope of peace and a better future for Ireland and the Island of the Mighty. Branwen’s half-brother Efnisien is furious when he hears of their wedding, he is filled with rage, as he sees the fact that no-one asked for his blessing, as a personal insult. In his madness, he takes revenge on Matholwch’s horses. The seeds of revenge sown here, lead eventually to the destruction of the two lands. Although the story itself is from long ago, the production and its message are a timely reminder that insult continues to lead to revenge and destruction, as seen in wars today – as we continue to follow the path of Efnisien.
