“"Each room delivers a consistent surprise."” The Guardian

Step through the front door to join us for a midwinter gathering, and discover what might happen if the weather came to visit.

Commissioned by the new National Theatre Wales as part of its first year’s programme, and created entirely on location in a house in Pen-y-groes, The Weather Factory packs a year’s worth of weather into one ordinary yet magical place, celebrating the natural geography that makes Snowdonia the engine room of the Welsh climate.

A National Theatre Wales and Fevered Sleep co-production
Fevered Sleep's work is produced in association with Fuel
