About On Bear Ridge the play
“One minute we had customers, the next minute there was no-one.”
Bear Ridge Store still stands in a little lost village that has become blurry around the edges as borders have been redrawn. A town is easily hidden by a splash on a map where you could once find many bits and bobs. For a hundred years there were family shops, a butchers and grocers, a place where you could find odds and ends, a place where you could find things you shouldn't if you knew who to ask and the last petrol pump for thirty miles and now it's all gone quiet.
John Daniel and Noni own the Bear Ridge Store and they are not leaving anytime soon. They remain defiant, drinking what's left of the whiskey and reminiscing about the good old days when everyone worked as a team and the old language shined.
But out in the darkness, there is a figure coming towards them...
The play will be accompanied by a VR film. This virtual reality experience will explore a long-forgotten world set in the upper Swansea Valley. Read more about the On Bear Ridge VR experience and installation here.

London's Royal Court to hit net-zero carbon emissions in 2020
At a time when the dastardly Donald Trump wishes to pull the US from the Paris Climate Accord while the burning of Notre Dame gets more media coverage than the burning of the Amazon Rainforest, it can understandably be difficult to remain optimistic about the future of the climate crisis. But as Greta Thunberg continues to bring attention to the anthropogenic apocalypse, so does the West End and the London theatre scene. After Nimax Theatre Group set the "greenprint" for climate action last year thanks to their Last Straw campaign in which they said no to the use of plastic straws, more and more theatres are stepping up to the plate to take action against climate change and total ecological collapse.
