A GOOD CLEAN HEART
Two brothers, raised apart in West Wales and South London, now reunited.
This dynamic, bilingual play in English & Welsh from award-winning playwright Alun Saunders is the rollercoaster story of HEFIN & JAY, where things go from brilliant to horrific in a heartbeat.

REVIEW: ARTS SCENE IN WALES – MIKE SMITH – 13/05/15
“…a face smackingly amazing evening…”
“Alun Saunders cleverly constructed and sharply written play A Good Clean Heart [takes] the tale of two brothers separated by adoption at a very early age as its focus but from there somehow manages to give a darned good look at identity, nationalism, race, social deprivation, class, growing up, insecurity, guilt, parenting, sacrifice…well that’s enough for now….in just over an hour. Phew. And he does it really, really well.”
“…the divisions contrast and values that are inherent in the bilingualism of Wales, the barriers and misunderstandings that exist (and not only from outside Wales) and the cultural shorthand our language creates adds a richness to the story.”
