Pike and Musket Theatre and Media Production

"The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation."

- Stella Adler

Pike and Musket is a theatre and media production company led by Mark Pluckrose, based at Great Torrington School, Devon. The company formed in 2010 to create a short film called ‘The Shadows.’ Since then the company has expanded to explore multiple forms of performance work with young actors. Currently, each year the students in year 10 are employed by the company to produce a play for National Theatre Connections.
