  • Starring Rhys Ifans, Rakie Ayola, Jason Hughes, and Sion Daniel Young is Ed Thomas' On Bear Ridge at Royal Court Jerwood Downstairs

    "One minute we had customers, the next minute there was no-one."

    In a lost village, blurred by redrawn borders, hidden under a crumb on the map, Bear Ridge Stores still stands. 

    After a hundred years, the family butchers and grocers - a place for odds and ends, contraband goods, and the last petrol pump for 30 miles - is now silent.

    But owners John Daniel and Noni are not leaving.

    They are defiantly drinking the remaining whiskey and remembering the good times, when everyone was on the same side and the old language shone.

    Outside in the dark, a figure is making their way towards them. 

    A semi-autobiographical story about the places we leave behind, the indelible marks they make on us, and the unreliable memories we hold onto.

    Ed Thomas is an award-winning writer for screen and theatre. He co-created the television drama Hinterland and his plays include House of America and Gas Station Angel, which premiered at the Royal Court. Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone and Ed Thomas will co-direct On Bear Ridge.

    At Royal Court Jerwood Downstairs from 24 October 2019 to 23 November 2019, book your On Bear Ridge tickets today!
