Hedgespoken is a travelling off-grid theatre project based in Devon, UK – Tom Hirons and Rima Staines have turned a beautiful old Bedford RL truck into a theatre and a home.

Join the adventure by signing up to our occasional newsletter via the main Hedgespoken website.

As of Summer 2017, we are on the road, living and travelling in the beautiful Hedgespoken truck, which is gathering much attention along the way.  We’ve developed our first big show and have more new work to take place later this year. For all the latest pictures and news, take a look at the Hedgespoken facebook page and the website.

Here you’ll find various pictures of the truck (a 1966 Bedford RL, once of the Auxiliary Fire Service, now a travelling story-wagon, theatre-stage and our home…)
