PaperBack (03 Aug 2017)


(feminine: Scots Gaelic)


A chance meeting between two children on the streets of Edinburgh leads to a terrible reckoning, leaving Jenny and Tommy forever bound together by blood and fate. Brutal and beautiful, Hywel John's remarkable new play glimmers and cuts like a jewel, fusing raw epic romance with guttural urban poetry to tell the story of a secret generational legacy of love, violence and fury.

'this isn't a gentle, reflective play about a mundane relationship. It's a cable downed in a hurricane, thrashing and sparking in the wet and windy street... there's little to fault here. Seanmhair is an exciting, volatile new play deserving of wider audiences.Fest Mag ★★★★ 

'A striking new work that suddenly shifts from domestic memoir into thriller territory.’ The Stage ★★★★
