‘The World War One project was an 18-month labour of love for those involved, bringing together memories and historical artefacts into a wonderful and powerfully thought-provoking exhibition which was sensitive as well as being of great historical interest…’
Local historian Simon Dell on ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’
MED Theatre’s Dartmoor in World War One project culminated in a multi-media exhibition ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ at Green Hill Centre for Arts and Heritage in Moretonhampstead (20th September – 5th November 2014). MED Theatre’s Young Company created the exhibition with the help of the Green Hill team and Bill Hardiman of Moretonhampstead History Society. It included photographs, films and audio, showcasing material that the Young Company had unearthed and created throughout the course of the project. Films on display included extracts from ‘Road to Nowhere’, ‘Chasing Kitty Jay’ and ‘Williamson and the Otters’, as well as a new film ‘Till the Boys Come Home’ created during the summer of 2014. There were also original artefacts on display, such as the diary of a local man who served on campaigns in North Africa. The exhibition launch on the 19th of September featured live performance, including exerts from MED Theatre’s Young Company play ‘Road to Nowhere’.
