A modern fable of an idyllic childhood shattered by grief, and the confused, desperate and dangerous attempts we make to learn how to live again.

Jack and Beatrice are twins. They have no grandparents. They have no uncles or aunties and no cousins. And now, they have no mum and dad. The one person who can look after them is their godmother Sophie, who arrives, shocked and unprepared, at their remote rural family home.

Sophie has not seen the children since they were tiny: too tiny for them to remember her, and undoubtedly too little to remember what caused her long, enforced absence. But as the three of them return to the isolated home on the edge of a forest, their collective grief triggers a tragic attempt to remember, repair and recreate the past.

Hywel John's play Pieces was first staged at Clwyd Theatr Cymru in 2010.
