Presented by Rhys J Edwards
A raw and candid one-woman play following a fearless young carer coming-of-age in the South Wales Valleys.
Forgetting Heledd is a brutally honest and darkly comic account of a Welsh teenager whose dreams of becoming a doctor are hindered by her commitments to her mother, who has early-onset dementia. Inspired by real-life accounts, the play highlights the struggles of young carers in socio-economically deprived areas –whilst also finding the joy, still ever-present in the face of tragic circumstances.
Following success at the RADA Festival 2019, Hannah Dando returns to star as Heledd. Written by Rhys J Edwards and directed by Samara Gannon, the team are delighted to be bringing the production to Camden People’s Theatre as part of this year’s Camden Fringe Festival.
