Why See On Bear Ridge?
One minute we had customers, the next minute there was no-one.
Once a thriving community hub known for being a place you could pick up just about anything, Bear Ridge Stores and the tiny village it services has gone a bit Brigadoon of late. Although it has seemingly vanished from maps or is just too isolated for any tourists, owners John Daniel and Noni keep the doors open, reminiscing about the good old days and depleting the last stocks of booze. But who's that coming out of the darkness? Could it be a much longed-for customer, or something far less welcome?
Written by Welsh playwright Ed Thomas (Hinterland) and based on his own experiences from childhood, the production stars Rhys Ifans, Rackie Ayola, Sion Daniel Young, and Josh Hughes. Directed by Thomas and Vicky Featherstone, On Bear Ridge promises to be a winding tale of the places we leave behind, and the indelible marks they leave on us.
