To me, heritage is connected with language, therefore I chose to display photos from our local theatre production. All the photos were taken during rehearsal (except the bottom left one) since I was in the cast. Each year a different play of of the same author is performed. He wrote in the early parts of the 20th century but the stories take place in the 19th. He wrote in the local vernacular and the historical society puts on the plays as part of their effort to preserve the traditions and the dialect of the town. The backdrop – depicting typical half timbered houses from the area – dates back to the 1950s and has been used in every production since.
