On Bear Ridge premieres at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff before transferring to London's Royal Court Theatre from 24 October to 23 November.
Set in a small village on the Welsh border, the play follows the owners of Bear Ridge Stores. The rest of the community and local businesses have gradually left, and now this family butchers and grocers shop is closing. But owners John Daniel and Noni are not ready to go. Instead they stay up to finish off all the whiskey and reminisce about the old days, when folks where united and the old language still reigned. Then the memories are interrupted by an unexpected visitor.
Welsh star Rhys Ifans, who is known for films including Notting Hill and the Harry Potter series, returns to the stage after impressing at the Old Vic and National Theatre to play store owner John Daniel. He is joined by Raki Ayola (Strange Fruit, Bush Theatre; Holby City, BBC) as Noni and Jason Hughes (Midsomer Murders and Marcella, ITV).
