Daughter of Bala

by Adele Cordner


Dive into the remarkable tale of Betsi Cadwaladr, a name lost in the annals of history but not forgotten on the stage! In this gripping new play, written by Newport playwright Adele Cordner, witness the extraordinary life of a 19th-century Welsh woman whose adventures spanned continents and whose bravery helped reshape the course of wartime nursing history.

Join Her Story Theatre Company as we journey through Betsi’s captivating life story: from her humble beginnings in Wales to her globetrotting escapades in service, where she encountered fellow Welsh souls in the most unexpected corners of the world. But it was in her sixties, against all odds, that Betsi embarked on her most daring venture yet.

Journey alongside Betsi as she defies conventions and expectations, setting sail for the Crimean battlefield to heed the call of duty as a nurse. Along the way, she finds herself at odds with none other than Florence Nightingale herself, in a clash of wills that reverberates through the corridors of history.

Prepare to laugh, cry, and be swept away as Betsi’s indomitable spirit shines through in every scene. Through a tapestry of flashbacks and poignant interviews with her biographer, Betsi’s tale unfolds with heart-stopping excitement and tender humanity.

Don’t miss your chance to experience the triumphs and tribulations of a true trailblazer. Daughter of Bala promises an unforgettable theatrical experience that will leave you inspired and uplifted.
