Shakespeare on Dartmoor (2008)

Shakespeare on Dartmoor, based on an original idea by Amelia Young, Tara Boyland and Clare Hellyer, was first produced as part of ‘Dartfest 2007’, but was also performed at Killerton after an invitation by the National Trust as part of a youth project. Later it was included in the programme for MED Theatre’s  ‘Dartfest 2008’. Based on the legend that William Shakespeare once came on tour to Devon, the story follows William Shakespeare as he leaves his wife and children to take his company of girls (that he believes to be boys) to Buckland Abbey on Dartmoor, the home of Sir Francis Drake.img_0029 img_0053
