Pwy ydym ni

Ers iddynt roi’r gorau i’w bywyd teithiol fel actoresau mawreddog, mae Beth House ac Elise Davison wedi canolbwyntio ar greu theatr, ac yn 2009 aethant ati i sefydlu Theatr Taking Flight (TF). Syniad oedd hwn a ddyfeisiwyd ganddynt tra oeddent yn cerdded o gwmpas Ystad hyfryd – a thra hygyrch – Stagbwll, parc o eiddo’r Ymddiriedolaeth Genedlaethol yng Ngorllewin Cymru. Bydd Elise a Beth bob amser yn danbaid frwdfrydig o blaid herio syniadau hen-ffasiwn ynghylch pwy sy’n cael mwynhau’r theatr a phwy sydd â’r hawl i’w greu.
