In the summer of 1989, in a quiet corner of Glan Gwili hospital, a farmer's wife gives birth to a baby girl named Buddug James Jones. In this moment she became heir to the families 300-year-old farming dynasty.

Twenty-two years later, and Bud is restless. Desperate to leave the James Jones historic home - Blaengwyddon Fawr - she wrestles with the knowledge that her departure will sound the death knoll for the family business.

Leaving generations of James Jones tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke...

A story of one woman’s struggle to escape and let go, told through live music, welsh cakes and a ‘twmpath’ (Welsh Ceilidh).

“Funny and poignant, Hiraeth strikes a cord which will resonate beyond Wales with anyone who has felt the need to escape, or responsibility for those left behind.” Matt Ball – National Theatre Wales
