Beyond Dreams Of Aberystwyth: Emma Decent

In 2009 Emma’s Dad died. Days later she found out he’d had a child with a woman he abandoned heartbroken and pregnant in the 1950s.

The revelation sends her on a round-the-world trip, starting at Aberystwyth, the Welsh town where he’d conducted the relationship and where Emma spent three years as a drama student.

In a quest to make peace with her father and her own history, Emma follows in his footsteps, discovering their Jewish heritage in Europe, his film-star dreams in the Far East, and finishing in the place she was born – Toronto.

Part travelogue, part autobiographical myth-making, Emma uses her trademark poetic writing and multi-media to express an impossible search for truth.
‘Emma Decent is a writer and performer with the rare quality of captivating her audience and never letting them go. ‘Aberystwyth’ is subtle, powerful, literary magic.’ J. A. Brunning - Lancashire Writing Hub
‘Beautifully crafted, thought-provoking, fearless and insightful.’ Large magazine
