Creating rural community theatre inspired by the
ecology, history and folklore of Dartmoor

Community plays & projects

MED Theatre puts on multi-generational community plays, experimental drama and young people’s work, with the aim of promoting Dartmoor’s, and surrounding rural Devon’s, distinctiveness through its culture and people.


MED Theatre’s education programme prides itself on taking inspiration for creative work from our local surroundings, the Dartmoor National Park and its outskirts, which forms a rich resource for young people to learn from.
