#OnBearRidge

“One minute we had customers, the next minute there was no-one.”

Mewn pentref coll, lle aneglur ers ail-lunio’r ffiniau, yn cuddio o dan briwsionyn ar y map, mae Bear Ridge Stores yn dal i sefyll.

Ar ôl can mlynedd, mae’r cigydd a’r siop groser deuluol – lle ar gyfer manion bywyd, nwyddau gwaharddedig, a’r pwmp petrol olaf  am 30 milltir – yn awr yn ddistaw.

Ond nid yw’r perchnogion John Daniel a Noni yn mynd i unman.

Maent yn yfed yr hyn sydd ar ôl o’r whisgi yn herfeiddiol ac yn cofio dyddiau da, pan oedd pawb ar yr un ochr a’r hen iaith yn disgleirio.

Y tu allan yn y tywyllwch, mae ffigur yn symud tuag atynt…

Mae un o awduron enwocaf Cymru, Ed Thomas (cyd-grëwr Y Gwyll) yn dychwelwyd i’r llwyfan gyda’r stori lled-hunangofiannol hon am y lleoedd yr ydym yn eu gadael ar ôl, y marciau annileadwy y maent yn eu gwneud arnom ni, a’r atgofion annibynadwy yr ydym yn dal ein gafael ynddynt.

In a lost village, blurred by redrawn borders, hidden under a crumb on the map, Bear Ridge Stores still stands.

After a hundred years, the family butchers and grocers – a place for odds and ends, contraband goods, and the last petrol pump for 30 miles – is now silent.

But owners John Daniel and Noni are going nowhere.

They are defiantly drinking the remaining whiskey and remembering good times, when everyone was on the same side and the old language shone.

Outside in the dark, a figure is making their way towards them…

One of Wales’ most celebrated writers, Ed Thomas (co-creator of Hinterland) makes a momentous return to the stage with this semi-autobiographical story about the places we leave behind, the indelible marks they make on us, and the unreliable memories we hold onto.
