Tiger Bay, early 1900s. Extreme poverty meets supreme wealth. Gangs of street children roam the docks. Coal is king.
A revolution is brewing in the dark and restless world beneath the genteel surface of Cardiff’s Butetown…
This epic new musical follows a young woman’s determination to challenge society’s injustices, follow her heart and realise her dreams. With rousing music and unforgettable characters including John Owen-Jones as the Third Marquess of Bute, Tiger Bay will transport you to the notorious public houses and alleyways of the city’s underworld at this extraordinary turning point in history.
With book and lyrics by Michael Williams and an original score from Welsh composer Daf James, Wales Millennium Centre proudly presents this spectacular musical drama that brings Tiger Bay roaring to life on stage.
