John Owen: Cadw Cyfrinach

John Owen was one of Wales’s most well-respected drama teachers working within the heart of the Welsh speaking community on the edge of the Rhondda Valleys. John Owen may have been hugely talented, charismatic and supported by the great and good, but he was also one of the nation’s most prolific paedophiles. Abusing school children in plain sight over decades. John Owen seemed above the law, protected by those around him and supported by the institutions that should have known better. A shocking and politically sensitive story that had been impossible to tell. No one would speak up, until now.
