Seanmhair is a totally immersive piece of performance
CommonSpace theatre critic Tara Fitzpatrick gives her take on a "highly intense" effort from Hywel John
SEANMHAIR, from Welsh writer Hywel John, is a wonderfully acted, highly intense piece of theatre which expertly shifts between characters and timescales.
Jenny, a well-spoken, upper-class Edinburgh girl falls in love with Tommy MacLeish, a cheeky, working-class lad from Leith.
The story is told by older Jenny, looking at an older and mentally frail Tommy and remembering their first meeting.
