Hiraeth

HIRAETH1-notitle - web

Desperate to leave, Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. Leaving five generations of tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke…

With live music and welsh cakes, award-winning Hiraeth explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one woman’s struggle to escape and let go.

Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no direct translation. It’s a mixture of homesickness and an intense form of longing or nostalgia.

Winner of ‘Best Production in the English Language’ at the Wales Theatre Awards 2015. Winner of the IdeasTap Underbelly Award 2014.
“Sweetly Hilarious Lo-fi Comedy” Time Out,

“Undoubtedly This Year’s Find” Evening Standard,

“It’s a show of real charm on a universal theme that explores the things that hold us together but sometimes also tear us apart.” The Guardian
