Dendrology – Writers in the Observatory
10th June 2017 @ 10:00 am - 25th June 2017 @ 5:00 pm GMT
Forest Forge Theatre have commissioned two established professional playwrights, Deborah Gearing and Paul Hewitt, to be resident in the Observatory, a travelling artist studio created by SPUD, at Buckler’s Hard, Beaulieu. This is an exciting collaboration between SPUD and Forest Forge Theatre for the New Forest Arts Festival 2017.
During the Festival the playwrights will draw from their surroundings for their inspiration, with a specific focus on the location of Buckler’s Hard with its river and Forest landscape heritage.
There will be opportunities to speak to the writers and take part in activities relating to the Forest, trees and the landscape.
