Ruins of Talgarth by Blackwood Little Theatre
This play is based on a true story. Jean has been committed at the age of 18 to the lunatic asylum in Talgarth ( known as ‘The Bin’) at the insistence of her husband, William.  We try to understand what that experience might have been like  for Jean and the reasons that her husband “put her in the bin”.
