The Other Room in association with Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru

Erin, a young Mother, has lost her son but no one will listen. Driven and desperate she must find him by any means necessary. Waiting patiently for the right moment, now is the time for action, answers and justice. In a futuristic world of information and revolt, justice is determined – like everything else – by an algorithm. In this dystopian Wales, the most odious form of violence is protected, and the lines of justice become blurred. Hela asks if our obsession with data can truly be trusted? Can deep seated pain ever be defused? And how far we are willing to go to see justice happen?

Winner of The Other Room’s Violent Burns Playwright Award, Mari Izzard makes her playwriting debut with this dark and unsettling tale. Hela leaves no rock unturned in this tale of dirty family secrets and vigilant justice. Artistic Director Dan Jones, directs this unsettling bi-lingual production with innovative accessibility woven into the narrative. Whether you speak Welsh or not, everyone will be able to understand, enjoy and be challenged by this provocative production.

This is a bilingual production
