Review: Scarlett – Theatr Clwyd

By Emma Tattum, Egwyl Editor

We’ve all had family arguments, no matter big or small, but this one takes it to the extreme!

Bored of her current life, full of overbearing family members and all-encompassing grief, Scarlett (Kate Ashfield) escapes her busy London life and plans to start afresh in the Welsh countryside. But why is she there and how long is she there for?

We first meet Scarlett as she is taking a stroll in the Welsh hills, decked out in black skinny jeans and her best pair of high heels, not exactly the suitable outfit!

In search of a new life, she plans to buy an old chapel. After painstakingly working her way into the lives of sceptical owner Eira (Lynn Hunter) and her grand-daughter Billy (Gaby French), she begins the next chapter. Only to be interrupted by her Mum, Bette, and 19 year old daughter, Lydia, who arrive unannounced ready to take her back to London, her extraordinary journey is only just beginning.

If you’re expecting a full show of pure comedy, be prepared for a ride on an emotional roller coaster. It’s definitely not a walk in the park (well, countryside!).

From Cinderella-esque shoe disasters, bad hair days, the search for a man, christmas trees and hairdryers, Scarlett has it all!

The show runs at Theatr Clwyd until April 15th and you can find tickets and information here!
