The play is funny and moving and tells the story of how two very different families survive a diagnosis of dementia. You can see the trailer for Re-Live Theatre’s Belonging here and watch an excerpt from the play here.

Critics are calling it ‘beautiful, both in the delicacy with which it tackles the subject and the strength of the performances‘ and ‘a damned good piece of theatre‘.

Wednesday May 25 sees Gwanwyn come to Theatr Felinfach in Ceredigion where Merched Mentrus (Venturous Women) will take to the road for one day only, entertaining audiences in unexpected locations. Presented by a group of older women, the short play is an affirmation that venturing is exciting at any age.
