    The Weardale community play project was inspired by the true story of ‘The Battle of Stanhope’, a lead-miners' uprising immortalised in the local song “The Bonny Moorhen”. Working with an award-winning playwright and members of the community we planned to create a large-scale production of "The Bonny Moorhen" to be performed at the end of March 2012.
    We had many partners including Durham County Council and in particular worked closely with local museums and archives. Our learners and team of artists were able to access important historical documents at Durham County Record Office which helped them put together a rich picture of the story and of life in 1818.

    Because Wikispaces are suspending wikis not edited for some time I (steve T) have added this to perform an edit.

    "TWO years will linger in the memory of Stanhope, County Durham – 1818 and 2012"
    1818 is the date of the story our play was based on and 2012 refers to the date that the journalist saw the play.
    On the opening night Councillor Dennis Morgan, Chairman of Durham County Council, said:
    "The community endeavour benefit of Drama in the Dale cannot be measured it must be counted as priceless."
