A Told by an Idiot and National Theatre Wales production

National Theatre Wales, and Told by an Idiot, celebrated one of Wales' most distinctive voices of the last century. Taking as its inspiration the ink-black comic tales of Gwyn Thomas, the great Welsh storyteller and dark, hilarious chronicler of the Valleys, The Dark Philosophers was a funny, violent, and passionate depiction of a community teetering on the brink of humanity.
