New Musical My Land’s Shore is currently requesting sponsorship to help produce a cast album. You all know how passionate I believe we should all be about supporting new work, and this new work is definitely one to watch.
My Land’s Shore has been called “The Welsh Les Mis” and tells a true story of wrongful execution. The synopsis says –
“1831 – Merthyr – black with smoke belching from the furnaces that fired the town’s iron works but with even greater flames ablaze in the hearts of the people. A political protest turned into a riot that was brutally suppressed by the authorities. In the aftermath of the riot Richard Lewis (aka Dic Penderyn) was arrested, tried and convicted of a crime he did not commit. Dic Penderyn, an ordinary man of conviction and integrity carried along by the wheels of history in extraordinary times, became the first martyr of the Welsh working class. Now he becomes the central character in a new musical with a beautiful and powerful score.
MY LAND’S SHORE is a tale of conflict, social injustice, moral dilemmas, love, guilt and heartbreak … An epic musical gift from the musical nation of Wales to the world. So, embrace the passion of this musical about one man whose story speaks for all men who stand up for freedom in the face of unjust oppression. ”
