Spotlight on: National Theatre Wales, Feral Monster
February 19, 2024
Feral Monster follows Jax and her noisy, opinionated brain as they navigate love, identity, class and family. Mashing up grime, R&B, soul, pop and rap, the soundtrack takes us from the high highs to low lows of the hormonal rollercoaster of adolescence.

Thursday 21st March | 7pm

Friday 22nd March | 7pm

Age Guidance: 14+ recommendation.

A banging new musical about an unremarkable teenager.

Expelled from school and not even able to get a job at the chippy, Jax (she/they/whatever) is a cocky, loveable teen living with her Nan in a tiny, boring village.

When Jax meets Ffion, with her smart talk and loud looks, sparks fly. Queer teenage lust brings together this unlikely match in all its messy, clumsy and awesome glory.

Feral Monster follows Jax and her noisy, opinionated brain as they navigate love, identity, class and family.

Mashing up grime, R&B, soul, pop and rap, the soundtrack takes us from the high highs to low lows of the hormonal rollercoaster of adolescence.

Feral Monster is made by an all-LGBT+ creative team. This musical is written by Bethan Marlow and directed by Izzy Rabey, with music by Nicola T. Chang.

The cast features Lily Beau, Carys Eleri, Geraint Rhys Edwards, Rebecca Hayes, Nathaniel Leacock and Leila Navabi.

“We're trying to tell a story that is queer, that is Welsh, that is rural.”

Bethan Marlow

Feral Monster is sponsored by the Principality Building Society and supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund, John Ellerman Foundation, as part of NTWs’ Dramaturg programme, Jack Arts and by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, which is being administered by Cardiff Council.
