Drama of the Week

Friday, 29 March

Adapted by Lucy Catherine From the Red Book of Hergest, these are the tales of the Mabinogi. A new fantasy adventure, based on the iconic work of medieval Welsh mythology. Pryderi, Prince of Dyfed, heads to Harlech in North Wales, to win the hand of Princess Branwen of Gwynedd. But first he must impress her giant of a brother, King Bran the Blessed. The tales of the Mabinogi are tales of romance, tragedy, comedy and fantasy and together they form the earliest prose stories of Britain. Award-winning writer Lucy Catherine (The Master and Margherita, Being Human, Vanity Fair) gives these stories a modern flavour while remaining true to the vivid magic of Celtic mythology. Pryderi….
