“It’s not us who have a hold over the land, it’s the land that has a hold over us.”

 

Plans are afoot to build a new nuclear power station on Anglesey. But what effect will Wylfa Newydd have on its nearest neighbours, as the capitalist machine attempts to swallow up a farm that has remained in the same family for generations?

Do we have a choice? How else can we ensure that the light stays on? And don’t we desperately need the jobs?

A bold new verbatim play about a community’s right to shape its own future. Constructed from interviews with local people, a cast of familiar faces brings to life the arguments for and against this most divisive of issues.

Based on an original idea by Sarah Bickerton and Marred Glynn Jones.


There will be a post-show talk on Monday 9 October, following the performance of Hollti featuring members of the cast and chaired by Ceri Wyn Jones.
