“One minute we had customers, the next minute there was no-one.” In a lost village, blurred by redrawn borders, hidden under a crumb on the map, Bear Ridge Stores still stands. After a hundred years, the family butchers and grocers – a place for odds and ends, contraband goods, and the last petrol pump for 30 miles – is now silent. But owners John Daniel and Noni are not leaving.

A semi-autobiographical story about the places we leave behind, the indelible marks they make on us, and the unreliable memories we hold onto.

Set at an abandoned butchery/petrol station in secluded Wales, the play stars Rakie Ayola, Jason Huges, Rhys Ifans and Sion Daniel Young – a 100% Welsh cast – to tell the story. We caught up with Young as he was preparing to stage the play and asked him whether he...
