Soho Theatre will be home to Hiraeth, Wednesday 18th – Saturday 21st March, following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe.
In the summer of 1989, a farmer’s wife gave birth to a baby girl. Buddug James Jones became heir to her family’s three hundred year old farming dynasty. But Bud sets out alone into the big smoke.
Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no direct English translation; it is a pride you feel for your roots and a sadness for the loss of a way of life. The show rejoices in this universal emotion with which everyone can empathise even as Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure marks a time of change and sounds the death knell for the family farm.
