This year's production will look at Porlock in the 1920s and 30s through the eyes of Vivian Perkins and the people he encountered from his birth to his marriage early in WW2. The play will feature Vivian’s mother, a schoolmaster, an ironmonger, a harbour master, Lady Chadwyck-Healey and other local characters.

The Museum Players were formed over 12 years ago, to bring the history of the village to a modern audience through story, song and poetry; marauding Vikings, Crusaders, seafaring men, and women patiently knitting for the troops in WWI have all featured. Originally conceived, written and directed by the Curator Lita Strampp, the Players first performed in the Great Hall to an audience limited to only 21. When the Museum was renovated in 2008, a larger audience could be accommodated in the Solar and in 2016 Christine De Vere Hunt took over role of writer and director. It is a credit to the Players that tickets are much sought after.
