Theatre Gwalia present:
Bara Bread by Carmen Meadway-Stephens
Friday 29th May
Here's the blurb for it!
Nettie is in her 40th year and doesn't know which way to turn. She finds herself standing in her mother’s kitchen alone except for her mother’s ashes and a scrap book of recipes and a note that reads 'lets bake bread together'.
It is time for Nettie to scatter her ash and create the mother dough. But can she bake? She hasn't eaten a carb in years.
The mother dough brings new friends into Nettie's life - Maggie the shepherdess, wild and free, Mair the Vicar, upright like a head stone but soft as the very dough. Annabel the estate agent, so well turned out, and little Lara, pregnant at 16 left holding the baby.
Through Nettie's wish to find herself, these individuals all come to the table to make bread with her.
'So by inventing the white sliced bread how did that liberate us?'
The table - our universe where the crust is broken, love is shared, tears are shed, laughter rings and secrets told.
Can Nettie get her ingredients right to become the woman she is meant to be? Scatter the ash and the Magic will happen.............
