From Devon With Love is a scratch performance festival for Devon-based artists. The festival supports some of the region’s best talent to test new work in front of a live audience.

Originally established by The Bike Shed Theatre, we are relaunching this well-loved festival as a Devon-wide scheme to extend performance opportunities into rural communities.

September 25th, Buckfastleigh Town Hall

The StoryExplorers

The StoryExplorers is a new collaboration between Pip Jones (Skylarker) and James Richardson (Angel Heart Theatre) involving performance, storytelling and puppetry. It is centred around their ingenious StoryGenerator, with its secret compartments and cabinets of curiosities. Pip and James play intrepid explorers who have travelled the world collecting stories which they tell with the help of their wonderful machine. Suitable for ages 7+


Cut Out

Cut Out is a new show from Emma Baskeyfield that uses visual storytelling, multi-operator puppetry and cowboy stories to explore why we choose to keep some people in our lives, and cut out others. From Emma’s lived experiences, the show touches on themes of dementia, childhood trauma, neglect and emotional abuse, but also with giant budgie puppets, massive pop up books, and climactic western shootouts!

Stuck On My Eyes

A lo-fi spoken-word comedy musical from poet Chris White and musician Hal Kelly, which tells the stories of 3 characters as they attempt to prepare for the apocalypse. Stuck On My Eyes is a funny, chaotic heart-warming show that subverts ideas of the musical genre, and asks the audience - what would you do if you had just 5 years left?
