Save event

Mair is called home to a funeral in Wales, and feelings of guilt and responsibility are brought to the surface.  She starts to question her values and the happiness she thought she’d found with her partner Loeiza, and Brittany has never felt so far from West Wales. But can a friendly neighbour, who brings a strange gift to her door, calm her troubled mind?

A new, contemporary and multilingual play, that explores the close relationship between Wales and Brittany and some of the issues facing young people in rural communities.

The play is performed in Welsh, Breton and French, with English translation available via the Sibrwd app. Please download the Sibrwd before arriving at the theatre. Sibrwd is a smartphone app that whispers a translation in your ear during the performance. Please see for further details or download from the App Store and Google Play.

Date: 29 October
Time: 19:30
Venue: The House, Plymouth University

'Searching' season

This year Peninsula Arts have brought together a talented team of curators, artists and academic advisors to present a line-up of exhibitions, films, talks, performances and music events that all respond to the theme of ‘Searching’. 

The continual search for knowledge and understanding of the world around us is what underpins and fuels university life and so ‘Searching’ seemed a prescient way to launch into the new academic year. Whether the search is for home, for identity or new experiences, this season’s programme is sure to delight and stretch your imagination in many ways.
