Past Projects

IMG_9879When MED Theatre first began, our work took the form of an annual community production. Nowadays our work is structured around umbrella projects. An umbrella project may cover a period of several years and involve a number of productions, film projects, workshops and research projects. Below is a chronological archive of all of our past work, beginning with MED’s origins in 1980 and continuing up to the present day. As a general rule, our work can be divided into five categories: Community Plays, Young People’s Plays, Young People’s Film Projects, Music Projects and (more recently) Experimental Dance Dramas. However there are many exceptions.
