Drama in the Dale presents The Body on Killhope Moor

Written by David Napthine & the Drama in the Dale Community Writing group 

An outdoor promenade performance Directed by Liz Gill & Lucy Ridley

The body, the moor and the mystery.  An epic tale of the search for a truth in a place where nothing is ever what it seems.

The Body on the Moor, an open-air promenade play at Killhope Lead Mining Museum, is inspired by a true story from Upper Weardale. As you weave through different eras which turn dramatic, funny, intriguing, mysterious, and romantic, it will stay with you long after the performance has ended.
