In a Welsh-Breton collaboration, Merch yr Eog (The Salmon's Daughter) considers one immigrant's feelings of responsibility and belonging. The play will be performed in Welsh and Breton, two closely related Celtic minority languages, and French, and will be translated by Theatr Genedlaethol Cyrmu's app Sibrwd (Welsh for "whisper"). The app enables the audience to follow the elements of the play that are in languages that they don't speak - the first time that the app will be translating from a language other than Welsh and so the first time also that Sibrwd will be used by the company's Welsh-speaking audiences. Merch yr Eog is Theatr Genedlaethol Cyrmu's first co-production on an international tour, with both French and Welsh actors and directors from Wales and Brittany. Mair is called home to a funeral, and feelings of guilt and responsibility are brought to the surface. She starts to question her values and the happiness she thought she had found in Brittany with her partner Loeiza. All of a sudden, she has never felt so far from rural Wales. But can a friendly neighbour, who brings a strange gift to her door, calm her troubled mind? Based on a play by Owen Martell and Aziliz Bourges.
