The Miller’s Tale

MED Theatre Education is seeking funding for the continuation of an exciting interactive performance piece for KS2 pupils. In the play, the young participants are invited to meet a Victorian Flour Miller. During the course of their tour of his flour mill, he is arrested and accused of tainting the flour…the pupils help decide his fate. A pilot study with three local primary schools was completed in November, 2006, and proved a great success for MED Theatre and the Museum of Dartmoor Life.
