Sanctuary – The Secrets of The Gunter Mansion
For more than four hundred years Abergavenny has provided Sanctuary for those in danger – now the horrors and joys of their secret stories are told in thrilling theatre and music.
Carys is hiding in a garret in The Gunter Mansion in the centre of Abergavenny whilst building work and restoration goes on around her in 2023; Garnet and Oldcorne, two Jesuits priests are hiding in the same garret space in the early 17th century; Latifa has fled to Wales from Syria – all three find refuge and find each other in this hard-hitting, deeply moving and ultimately life-affirming and joyful story of Sanctuary and of kindness in Abergavenny. Told through original music and song, through visual images and through the power of theatre, this is a story of Abergavenny’s past and its present and points very much to its future.
