MED Theatre’s new community play THE COAST looks at the relationship of Dartmoor to the coast of the South West and explores the issues of plastic pollution of the ocean and the low-wage economy of the holiday trade. Partly set in the fictional coastal village of Atlantis, and partly on Dartmoor, the play looks at the connection of Dartmoor with the coast via its rivers and makes use of river stories and stories of wreckers and selchies as part of a plot that involves smuggling, as well as highlighting contemporary features of South West life such as music festivals and surfing. When Dartmoor sisters Romney and Petra go on holiday to Atlantis, they are led into a world where nothing is quite as it seems and end up staring at disaster from the edge of the cliffs. Can they and others overcome the feud that is undermining village life?
