Ed Thomas’ new Stage Drama for NTW/Royal Court playing at the Sherman Cymru Theatre & The Royal Court Theatre London Autumn 2019

National Theatre Wales
Sherman Cymru
The Royal Court Theatre, London



National Theatre Wales
From 7 September – 13 October 2019
Penwyllt, Wales




To further reveal and explore the world of On Bear Ridge, National Theatre Wales with writer and co-director Ed Thomas, have created a series of outdoor, site-specific installations.

These installations, near Penwyllt, close to Thomas’ childhood home, will temporarily exist in the landscape as fragmented remains of what was once there. A collection of lost things, half-forgotten sounds and memories, slowly sinking back into earth and rock.

The installation will offer visitors glimpses of a vanished world, allowing them to digitally listen at a door and hear whispered voices, half-truths and unfinished stories from a way of life grown silent.  A story that was never told. An act of remembering the forgotten.

This experience is free to explore.



Audiences at the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff and the Royal Court, London will also be able to experience the installation through a VR film that will be available to watch at both theatres making the landscape of On Bear Ridge accessible in the centre of these busy cities.
