A master-craftsman of Welsh fiction, Rhys Davies combined pin-point observation of Valleys life with a twinkling sense of comedy. His long-term friend Anna Kavan wrote dark and troubled novels described by J.G. Ballard as âsomewhere between poetry and madnessâ. Each lived a life of self-invention, in which secrets, sexuality and deep questions of personal identity lurked constantly in the shadows. D.J. Brittonâs high-energy play is set in the late 1960s when Daviesâ late literary recognition and Kavanâs final tragedy came together like a thunderclap.
