Outpatient Department, Royal Gwent Hospital,

As Long as the Heart Beats will be a site-located, theatrical journey inspired by the Outpatient Department at Royal Gwent Hospital. Drawing on the many stories NTW have collected from people across Wales, this brand new production will celebrate the dedication and care provided every day by the NHS.

In intimate groups, the audience will be invited to hear stories from staff and patients sharing their experiences of the first 70 years of the NHS, including some of the groundbreaking work performed here in Wales.

Featuring specially-composed music and interactive elements, co-directed by Marcus Romer and Ben Tinniswood with original music by Tic Ashfield, As Long as the Heart Beats has care and compassion at its heart, just like the NHS itself.

Adran Cleifion Allanol, Ysbyty Brenhinol Gwent

Bydd As Long as the Heart Beats yn siwrnai theatrig a leolir ar safle, wedi'i hysbrydoli gan yr Adran Cleifion Allanol yn Ysbyty Brenhinol Gwent. Gan dynnu ar straeon niferus y mae NTW wedi eu casglu gan bobl ledled Cymru, bydd y cynhyrchiad newydd sbon hwn yn dathlu'r ymroddiad a'r gofal a ddarperir bob dydd gan y GIG.

Mewn grwpiau bach, gwahoddir y gynulleidfa i glywed straeon gan staff a chleifion sy'n rhannu eu profiadau o 70 mlynedd gyntaf y GIG, gan gynnwys peth o'r gwaith arloesol a gyflawnwyd yma yng Nghymru.

Yn cynnwys cerddoriaeth a gyfansoddwyd yn arbennig ac elfennau rhyngweithiol, mae gan As Long as the Heart Beats ofal a thosturi wrth ei wraidd, yn union fel y GIG ei hun.
