The Edge Players

Sabine Baring Gould - Influencer

A Tavistock Edge Players Production, in association with The Bedford Hotel

As part of the centenary celebrations of the death and remarkable life of Sabine Baring Gould, novelist and the Squarson of Lewtrenchard, The Edge Players present their new play, Sabine Baring Gould - Influencer, at The Bedford Hotel. The play will take place between the three courses of a delicious meal.

The play looks at the influence Baring Gould may have had over contemporary writers and his possible interactions with them as well as family life in Lewtrenchard. Viewed from the perspective of two of his daughters the play brings the characters alive. An insight into a polymath, creative writer, historian, archaeologist and collector of folk songs and tales as well as a vicar and family man.

An evening of fine food, intriguing history and maybe a laugh or two.
