the almond and the seahorse


For Gwennan, it’s always 1985. The face in the mirror is unfamiliar and there’s a strange man at the door claiming to be her husband. Joe’s past is coming undone and his partner, Sarah, fears she will be forgotten. What happens when you’re ambushed by time – your memories deleting, relationships erasing?

The play focuses on those who have survived Traumatic Brain Injury, informed by a Disability perspective.
