Production by Theatre Royal Plymouth and the Wampanoag

A truly remarkable performance of the Mayflower’s voyage, involving 2,000 people on both sides of the Atlantic to create an inspiring production at the Theatre Royal Plymouth.

It will see 25 members from the Wampanoag Tribe and residents of Plymouth, Massachusetts join their counterparts from Plymouth, UK, as 140 people in total perform the Mayflower story from multiple viewpoints with music from global and Devon-born folk artist Seth Lakeman.

This will be a large-scale international community event and performance – a true linking of hands across the Atlantic. A major work of professionally produced community theatre which will tell the story of the voyage of the Mayflower and creation of the Plimoth colony through the eyes of those who came there from England and through the eyes of the Native Americans of the Wampanoag tribe.

The Theatre is working in partnership with the Wampanoag community in the development of the piece including the script and music, as well as tribal people taking part in the final production alongside the Plymouth UK community, with a focus on PL1.

Up to eight shows will be performed in June 2020 - dates and time to be confirmed.
