Saturday 4th September - Sunday 5th September
A bright burst of pure hope
Local arts organisation, MED Theatre, are enjoying their relaunch into the world of live theatre having already performed their latest dance drama, ‘Earth Wind Fire’ to a full house, and are excited to introduce their latest community play commission, ‘Salmon’.
Written by Artistic Director Mark Beeson in collaboration with three young writers and Freelance Consultant Florrie Taylor, ‘Salmon’ aims to encourage communities along the river to engage with its history, nature and future.
The Dartmoor based theatre company has partnered with The River Teign Restoration Project to raise the profile of The River Teign among the local community and to ask questions about why the numbers of Salmon and other fish have declined in the river in recent years.
MED Theatre’s other contributions to the project include their education outreach workshops which will tour schools and youth settings near the River Teign, and a poetry and creative writing competition open to the public, which will be launched in September after the production.
The play will be performed beside the river at Fingle Bridge on the 4th September at 2.30pm and 7pm and in Hearn Field, Haccombe-with-Combe on the 5th September at 7pm.
‘Salmon’ aims to engage people with the issues facing the river, as well as encourage them to enjoy the riverside environment whilst learning about how the river affects people from all walks of life.
