Written in Welsh by the thrice-crowned Bardic poet Caradog Prichard, Full Moon (above) is a semi-autobiographical story of his slate-mining community at the time of the First World War. The novel was made into a Welsh-language film On a Moonlight Night, and combines gritty observation of life with flights of mystic lyricism.
Given her passion for Welsh culture, it is ironic that Full Moon was her last production for Clwyd. Bureaucratic pettyfogging and a reshuffle of regional funding have denied her a job, and she is fearful for the future of a theatre which she left in sucha thriving condition. Kaut-Howson is now pursuing a freelance career but it's hard to believe a woman of her vision will lie low for long. If she did so much for a national theatre of Wales, what could she do for a National theatre in Britain?
