Hefted is a new play by David Lane - a story in nine scenes which hurtles through 600 years of life in Devon.
Leaping through landscapes and racing through eras from 1475 to 2075, Hefted will take you on an extraordinary journey through North Devon. From Dolton in 1780 you'll come to the Tarka Line in 1861, via the walking wind turbines in Bradworthy in 2005 and on to an imagined future at Lundy Island.
Inspired by conversations and interviews with people across Devon, David Lane has written a new play about the connection that we have to our land, the pull of our past and what it means for our future.
Following the sell out success of the play when performed by a community cast last year, this is a rare opportunity to see a touring studio version performed by a small professional cast including North Devon theatre company, multi story theatre.
This show is brought to the Beehive through Villages in Action, the rural touring scheme which brings exceptional quality performances to Devon.
