Project Hush traces the threads of connection between the secret work carried out in a former weapons facility in North Wales and the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. The project is inspired by Kyoko Gibson, a second generation survivor of the Atomic Bomb, who now lives in Wales.

Thanks to a Research & Development Grant from the Arts Council of Wales we have been rehearsing on site in Rhydymwyn. Joining us is a top team of talent including, Poet Philip Gross, Scenographer, David Shearing, Young People’s Laureate Sophie McKeand and Performer Yasuro Ito. In May we presented a ‘work in progress’ showing to local audiences and had a hugely positive response. Below are some images from that showing. We are now busy raising funds for a full production. Get in touch if you can help us!
