Brown Willy

Brown Willy is a beautifully shot comedy drama about friendship against the odds, that shows one of Cornwall’s most stunning areas in all its brutal majesty.


DAVID MYNNE performs Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Joy to all mankind? Bah!

Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Bah!

Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts

(wooo oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah!

Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah!

In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations, Dracula and The Odyssey (Greek stuff!) will now take you on a grim journey through the dark, dismal streets of Victorian London, where Ignorance and Want cower together.

This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness?


Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! Humbug!

Suitable for adults and older children (8+)

“A Christmas Carol was beautiful, apparently simple theatre with just one actor but you go home remembering a cast of dozens! He is a genius.”
