Forgetting Heledd 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 that joy is still ever-present in the face of tragic circumstances.
