MED Theatre: The Experiment

March 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£10 – £14

MED Theatre’s Intergenerational Community Play 2024: The Experiment!

MED Theatre, Dartmoor’s own community-based theatre organisation, is back on tour in March 2024 with their latest production. The play will be part of a larger project called ‘What If…?’, made possible with support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

A group of children are dropped off at a location on Dartmoor, excited to enjoy a fun week of camping, when their leaders have an accident and have to be rushed to hospital leaving the children alone and unprovided for. Unbeknown to them, they are part of an experiment that their parents secretly signed them up for: is the hunter-gatherer instinct still intact? Can humans survive with only the land to live off despite the present-day short cuts to food and a reliance on technology? The scientists and parents watch on hidden cameras as the dangers get more and more extreme until eventually they need to step in, but for one child does their intervention come too late?
