Featuring three plays produced by the Hijinx Theatre, this collection is both stirring and diverse. Paul Robeson Knew My Father is the story of a young boy growing up in the South Wales Valleys in the 1950s. The son of a single mother, he is an isolated child who becomes obsessed with Paul Robeson, the movie star, and retreats into a fantasy world of spies and fighter pilots while struggling to find out the truth about his father. Dreaming Amelia, inspired by Amelia Earhart's landing in Burry Port in 1928, reveals how the success of one person can inspire others to have the courage to follow their dreams; while Spinning the Round Table, a take on the love triangle of Arthurian legend, explores love and betrayal in the corridors of power.
Val Hill is the administrative director of Hijinx Theatre, a company founded in 1981 to create high quality theatre that is accessible, entertaining, and challenging for small communities throughout Wales and England.
