About Creating Drama from local History with Sue Ashby and Tony Benge

Sue Ashby & Tony Benge have written three historical plays since July 2017, all based on local history:

On Them Our Lives Depend - Bourton Foundry 1914 -18,

Rage Tears & Cider: Peace Day 1919 &

The Miller’s Daughter, set at Sturminster Mill in 1830.

The one hour presentation will include how they translate historical research into authentic characters and a dramatic narrative that reflects the past and resonates & informs the contemporary audience.

Excerpts from the plays that illustrate this are presented by some of the actors involved in the productions.

Tickets are free, but must be booked via Eventbrite. 

Contact or visit the library if you need help with your tickets.
