Stapledon – A community play for Ashburton, based on the life of Walter Stapledon, Bishop of Exeter and High Treasurer of England under Edward II.
The play charts Stapledon’s life – from his humble origins coming from a farming family in North Devon, through his meteoric rise in the church and politics to become King Edward the Second’s most trusted diplomat and also his treasurer, to his murder by a London mob in 1326.
First play reading on Thursday, May 24th, at St Lawrence Chapel in Ashburton at 7pm. Performances of this play will take place 27th, 28th and 29th September 2018.

This was a young people’s film investigating the myth of Kitty Jay, directed by Daniel Rayner, as part of MED Theatre’s Myth project. It was made in collaboration with Coombeshead College and supported by a grant from Arts Council England. The film includes an interview with painter and writer Jane Beeson, filmed in the kitchen of Ford Farm, where Kitty Jay is said to have worked as a dairy maid.
