The Whitehorse Hill community play tells a story inspired by the archeological finds at the Whitehorse Hill cist near Postbridge. Who could the girl in the prehistoric grave have been? Why was she so important? In partnership with the Moor than meets the Eye scheme MED Theatre is reviving a play that explores how our ideas of heritage, knowledge and female strength have been passed down and evolved through time. The performance consists of scenes from seven different periods of history, all inspired by key events in central Dartmoor’s past. Led by lantern bearers from Princetown Primary school, the audience is taken on a journey through history in the magical Bellever Forest. Phase one of the Whitehorse Hill project took place in 2015 in Bellever Forest, and will be performed on 23rd and 24th of September 2017 as well as again in Autumn 2019.
