Hiraeth, (“here-eyeth” – roll the “r”) a Welsh word describing deep longing for one’s home, finds Tommy chatting with Sara over coffee in her kitchen in Silvermine, Connecticut. The house is also where Tommy grew up and has not visited in over 30 years. Sara, who with her husband and two young children now own the house, peppers Tommy with questions about the property’s curiosities while updating him with the neighborhood today.

Tommy’s visit unwittingly churns up unresolved terrors that draw him helplesslyn to his past. Too ill-equipped to manage his battle between then and now, Tommy’s trauma proves too all-consuming for Tommy to reverse his journey to the past. Hiraeth is a play about loss.
