Hefted is a play told through nine stories embedded in the landscape, history and psyche of rural life, presented by four actors who conjure a score of characters between them, interspersed with song and a spectacular soundscape.
All nine stories explore the notion of being ‘hefted’ – deeply connected to the land.
The stories of those who live in the countryside are rarely heard or heeded; this play opens the door for those stories to be shared.
“A powerful, intense and gripping production that transformed our village hall into a window onto our landscape.” “You could almost smell it – of course you couldn’t, but you could, if you know what I mean”. “I was so engrossed that I nearly leapt up and joined in – and I’ve never been on stage in my life!”
Written by the wonderful South West based playwright David Lane who understands our region and performed by Devon theatre company, Multi Story, this highly recommended production is rooted in our rural culture and times.
We continue to have the safety of our audience at the front of our minds and will continue to follow all government guidance and regulations. As we go to press, we will continue to offer a reduced number of tickets to ensure social distancing, good ventilation and encourage face masks to reassure the more vulnerable people in our community. All actors and accompanying technical staff will have had a negative lateral flow test result before the production. If we have to cancel, we will offer a rescheduled event or reimburse your ticket.
