About this event

Kenneth Branagh directs and stars alongside Judi Dench and Ian McKellen in the Ben Elton-scripted All is True, a fascinating drama depicting the mysterious last years of William Shakespeare’s life. In 1613, Shakespeare (Branagh) is universally acknowledged to be the greatest writer of the age. But when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground
the devastated Shakespeare must return to Stratford to face his troubled past and a neglected family. Examining his failings as a husband and father, his very personal search for redemption uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
