Documental Theatre is a Devon based theatre making collective founded by writers Cally Hayes & Lucy Bell. We make theatre inspired by lived experience. Fundamental to our productions, is the process of research based writing. Documental combines refreshingly honest new writing with testimony and vibrant physicality.
