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.

Wonderfully staged and acted. My restricted view seat was actually a great view. So extremely happy

Great acting in a rather surprising piece. Thoughtful and depressing at the same time, it’s message is applicable to every changing environment. Are “things” part of one’s memory? Are traditions, words, one’s language, one’s appearance, sentiments, part of one’s legacy? How important are memories to one’s identity, especially if there is no one else to remember YOU. As I indicated: strange, thoughtful, depressing, sad.

I went to see the show primarily because of Jason Hughes. Had no idea what the play was about but really enjoyed it. The actors all did an amazing job.
