This site is a tribute to some of the most important events and Welsh people who were involved in theatre in the early part of the 20th Century.

Some were comedians and some dramatic actors. Some trod the boards of both Music Hall and the so called "legitimate" theatre. Some wrote, directed or produced. Some ventured into the world of Cinema.

Some of these contributors were once household names and among the highest regarded in their fields and some are mentioned here through interest.

One, from the second half of the 20th Century, is here purely because his story is among the most bizarre I have come across.

What they all have in common is that, for the most part, they are no longer remembered - until now.
