Refuge: The English Civil War on Dartmoor - Friday 11th March & Saturday 12th March: Manaton Parish Hall




Refuge: The English Civil War on Dartmoor

It doesn’t take an expert historian to know that the English Civil War was a conflict that divided communities nationwide, and life on 17th Century Dartmoor was no exception. Village was set against village, family against family in one of the most bloodthirsty periods in English history. However, Dartmoor’s unique landscape, with all of its secret haunts, did prove to be an excellent hiding place…

MED Theatre’s 2016 community play will be examining the tensions between history and hearsay during this vivid period in Dartmoor’s past.
