Dave Mynne

I have now directed four shows based on classic novels for the well-known southwest performer and Kneehigh actor Dave Mynne.

To date the shows include Dracula, The Odyssey, Great Expectations and Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

A Christmas Carol (2017)

 

Director / Adapter

Rabbit Theatre's David Mynne (founder member of Kneehigh Theatre) returns for this festive treat of a show!

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

The Odyssey (2017)

 

Director / Adapter

From the makers of ‘Great Expectations’ and ‘Dracula’ comes a tale more exciting than excitement itself. The journey of all journeys. To Hell. And back again. Gods, Monsters, Sirens, Derring-Dos and Derring-Donts! A love story that lasts decades. It’s Greek stuff... with all the boring bits removed!

"Cyclops! A hulk of flesh, Ship tall. Arms reaching to his knees. Mouth - a gaping universe. And in the middle of his foolish forehead / One. Single. Eye."

Dracula (2015)

 

Director / Adapter

The team that brought you the award-winning ‘Great Expectations’ have got their teeth into Bram Stoker’s classic tale of the vampire.

Written by Andrew McPherson and directed by Simon Harvey, 'outrageously versatile' performer David Mynne brings you his one-man performance of... DRACULA!

Be warned: this monstrous, disturbing (and completely batty) tale of dark deeds and the UnDead, will thrill and seduce you.

‘Dave Mynne is to Cornwall what Leonardo da Vinci was to Florence... he can do everything! Actor, designer, comedian, artist and first class idiot - anything Dave touches promises to turn to glorious fools gold! Don’t miss him under any circumstances!’
