in co-production with The Welfare & Theatrau Sir Gâr

Written by Alun Saunders

A brand-new play available to watch online this April. 

Lissa is defensive, deaf and failing university - the last thing she needs right now is to fall in love.

Siôn is a wide-eyed Pontardawe boy with rock star dreams, desperately in love and about to have his heart broken. 

And Josh…well Josh just wants to beat the end of level Boss.

With humour, honesty and A LOT of breakdowns in communication, Fow asks us how we fall in love when we don’t hear each other and finds there is ALWAYS a way if you just look hard enough.

A truly heart-warming love story told online in different languages, including BSL, Cymraeg and English.

Suitable for audiences aged 14+, Fow features integrated captions.

If you require audio description, please email us at theatres@carmarthenshire.gov.uk and we will assist you with your booking.

FREE Q&A sessions to follow the show on the following days: :

Thursday 29th April

Tuesday 4th May

Fow (definition): BSL lip pattern accompanying a sign meaning a breakdown in communication/inability to understand. No direct translation in English or Welsh, the closest being the phrase ‘That went straight over my head!'

Unless you are someone who understands BSL, Cymraeg and English, there will be parts of the show that will be 'fow' for you. This is how we want you to experience the performance and is not a technical error. 

If however you would like to experience the performance with the reassurance of English captions throughout, we will also have a version for ticket holders that is fully captioned in English.
