The Voices of Morebath
St Michael's is very excited to be hosting an informal first reading by professional actors and director of The Voices of Morebath. This is a new play by the famous Cambridge historian of the Reformation, Professor Eamon Duffy, based on his book about life in a mid-sixteenth century Devon village. St Michael's is an ideal setting to re-enact Voices:

Voices will be delivered as a rehearsed reading on Saturday 1st October. Tickets include a Q&A with Professor Duffy between 5 and 6pm, the rehearsed reading from 7pm and a glass of wine or fruit juice during the interval of the play reading. If you wish to have dinner between the question & answer session and the reading you are encouraged to contact either the Six Bells tel:01727,856945, Email: or the Rose and Crown Tel: 01727,851903, Email: on St. Michael's Street.
