Rydyn ni yn awyddus i ddal drych o flaen bywyd er mwyn datgelu gwirionedd a thrwy hynny datgelu anwiredd ac anghydraddoldeb.
Dylai theatr dda fod “am” rhywbeth - dylai ysgogi newid bersbectif, cynnig cyfeiriadau newydd.
Rydyn ni am i'n gwaith ysbrydoli eraill i wneud celf gymdeithasol wych, i barhau y sgwrs yr ydym yn rhan falch ohoni.
We want to hold a mirror up to life and expose truth and untruth and inequality.
Good theatre should be “about” something – should prompt a change of perspective, a new direction.
We want our work to inspire others to make great social art, to continue a conversation that we are a proud part of.
