Performance date and time
Friday, 12th October 2018
7:45 PM

An intimate, thoughtful, atmospheric evocation of fragile family and community allegiances within a remote Welsh village. Tracing the lives of a young autistic man, his absentee soldier father, his alcoholic beekeeper mother and her tattoo artist sister, at the heart of the drama is a story of family - family fragmented, family struggling, and finally family rebuilding.

And woven throughout is the on-stage stitching of a honeycombed quilt, a beautiful original folk music soundtrack and stunning choreography. A strong story, gently told and laced with gentle humour. Swarm to see it.

Produced in association with the Live & Local DART programme (developing artists for rural touring). Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
