Cardiff is based on a true story.
In 1972 in a gritty section of Cardiff, South Wales, on the morning following the installation of his sculpture, British Artist, Garth Evans, recorded the comments of passers-by to this work. When this sculpture was suddenly transported to their neighborhood, residents responded with surprising passion. As they grappled with their encounter with the other, what they actually said provokes us, teaches us and moves us. This play is their words.
Two years ago, Leila Philip, an award-winning writer and Professor of Literature, reviewed the 1972 tape and was excited by the idea of transforming it into a play. She produced a script, and together with Garth Evans, the artist at the heart of the controversy, began working with director Andrew Resto to create Cardiff.
3A Productions has produced the world premieres of All That Might Happen by John Philip and Two Steps Forward by John Philip and Andrew Resto as well as saucy revivals of Sordid Lives and Charles Ludlam’s Camille.
