A Few Crusted Characters
The Museum Makers moved forward in time to the early nineteenth century, and looked at horse-drawn transport, as a precursor to our forthcoming work on the railways. We used the concept and structure of Thomas Hardy's A Few Crusted Characters, which tells the story of a group of homeward- bound travellers in a carriers cart who are joined on the journey by a stranger. The interwoven tales that the locals tell to the newcomer make up the scenes in the play.
