‘There’s no place like home. But how well do we really know this special place?

During the lockdown, acclaimed artist and performer Eddie Ladd has moved home to live with her mam on the farm where she grew up – Maesglas. In every nook and cranny of this wonderful spot – the farmhouse, the cowshed, the farmyard and the potato shed – Eddie revisits her family history, stories from the local community and memories of her own long and varied career.’

In Summer 2019 Eddie was a recipient of Groundwork’s Seeds commission, where she began working on (funnily enough) the seeds of this idea, mapping her childhood home and farm Maesglas.

Here is a brilliant new Digital Commission by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru and National Theatre Wales production in partnership with BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Arts Artist: Eddie Ladd.
