Hoard: Rediscovered

7th Nov

Hoard: Rediscovered

Hoard: Rediscovered revisits and reimagines some of the pieces created for the New Vic’s 2015 Staffordshire Hoard Festival, originally developed in conjunction with the support of National Theatre Studio.

Digitally reimagined for socially distanced audiences, join us for an evening discovering secrets of buried treasure that will grip your imagination.


Written and directed by Theresa Heskins

A documentary-drama in the New Vic tradition, hear the words of the people who found an astonishing hoard of gold in a Staffordshire field, and the story of the experts who tried to unravel its meanings.

How was the Hoard hidden? Who by? And why?
