Hiraeth is a longing for one's homeland, but it's not mere homesickness. It's an expression of the bond one feels with one's home country when one is away from. It is a mix of longing, yearning, nostalgia, wistfulness and desire - a pride you feel for your roots and a sadness for the loss of a way of life.

This is a charming piece of theatre with laughs and tears, both on and off stage. Through live music and Welsh cakes, Hiraeth explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one woman's struggle to escape and let go.

Buddug was brought up on a farm that has been in her family for centuries. The locals are Welsh-speaking and regard a journey to the nearest town as an adventure. Desperate to leave, Bud wrestlers with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. We follow Buddug's departure and new life, which does not fulfill all her dreams but does leave her significantly wiser.
