Hefted will be visiting villages and rural communities around England this autumn, thanks to an Arts Council National Lottery Grant. We look forward to more of the fascinating conversations that the production sparked when we performed in Devon villages last year.
The tour has been much delayed by the pandemic but it looks as though we’ll finally get to Cumbria and County Durham at the beginning of November with performances in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Worcestershire later in the month. These performances are organised by three Rural Touring Schemes, namely Arts Out West, Highlights and Live & Local. Details of time and place are on our website: schedule.
As we re-rehearse the play in preparation for the tour, we’re acutely aware of the changes wrought by getting-on for two years of living with covid-19. Many of us have re-evaluated our lives in big ways and small over this period and Hefted feels to be a part of that continuing process.
