Welcome to Dartington Playgoers

We've been making theatre in and around Dartington (south Devon) for over 70 years. We are committed to creating the best shows we can and presenting our audiences with dynamic, imaginative and engaging productions.


We stage three shows a year in the studio spaces at Dartington Hall, along with a series of rehearsed readings and other theatrical events at venues including the Great Hall, Bogan House and Totnes Library.


We also exist to provide opportunities in acting, directing, technical and front of house management. We are always looking for new people to join us and develop their theatre skills.

Upcoming shows
Huge thanks to all involved in our November production, All My Sons by Arthur Miller, directed by Mike Davies.  And particularly to our audience, over 300 of which saw the show.  This was our first indoor performance since January 2020, and in this, our 75th year, we hope it marks a return to some sort of theatrical normality. 
Into 2022...

Our spring 2022 production will be Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker, directed by Annie Bowie.  Anyone interested is welcome to attend a reading of the play on 12th December.  Auditions will be held on 9th and 16th January, 2022.  If you're not a member and would like further details, please contact us.


A version of Shakespeare's As You Like It is planned for outdoor performances next summer. Watch this space and/or Facebook for news of auditions... 

Plus, for members - regular play readings and an exciting series of character/text workshops starting in January.  Why not join Playgoers now?  Your subscription will run through to the end of 2022, and you'll be the first to know of our plans...

Covid-19 precautions

We realise that many of our regular patrons may still be hesitant about attending live events.  So we are following Dartington's guidance regarding ticketing, mask-wearing and socially-distanced seating.  You can find the full guidance here.
