    On Bear Ridge featuring an all-star cast hits the Royal Court this October

    The forthcoming Off-West End play On Bear Ridge was written and co-directed by award-winning playwright Ed Thomas, who is perhaps best known for co-creating Hinterland and penning the plays Gas Station Angel and House of America. Thomas' On Bear Ridge stars former Harry Potter actor Rhys Ifans and the National Theatre Wales production is set to attract fans of the actor to his native Welsh homeland thanks to a site-specific installation that has been built in Penwyllt in the upper Swansea Valley. The site can be seen in Wales in person or virtually at the Royal Court Theatre with the production's accompanying VR film developed in special cooperation with Cuckoo Nest.
