The Plough Arts Centre are proud to announce that we are working on the Devon Remembers Drama Commission for the South West Heritage Trust. From April-Nov 18 we will research, develop and bring to life stories from North Devon during the First World War with a particular focus on factory work and life on the home front which will culminate with a community performance in Nov 18.


We are looking for volunteer actors, researchers, assistants and stories about factory workers in North Devon during World War One, especially female workers who took the roles of the men in the factories as they went to battle.

We have a Devon Remembers Open Day at St Anne's, Paternoster Row, Barnstaple, EX31 1SX on Wed 18 April 10am-3pm. Drop in to find out more about the Devon Remembers community research and drama project and how you can get involved!





Help! We urgently need to find more people to work behind the scenes on Torrington Players’ productions. The small group of members currently trying to organise everything that isn’t acting, is in danger of buckling under the pressure and without enough people off the stage as well as on, putting on productions is extremely difficult.

Do you know anyone who would like to get involved with anything from stage management, to publicity, to set-building and design or any of the other roles that go into putting on a production? If so, please email us - we would love to hear from you!!



 Torrington Players Floral Display

On the 4th - 6th May 2017, in St. Michael's Church Torrington, displays of Torrington groups and business', were on display.  There was a display which represented the Torrington Players, using the past production of 'The Miracle Worker,' as its stimulus.
