Current Projects

A CHRISTMAS CORNISH CAROL    (with apologies to Mr Charles Dickens)     Christmas is upon us and business is booming in Ebenezer Scrooge’s Pre-Packaged “Proper” Pasty Production Company. Costs are low, profit is high and the money is pouring in.    What’s that? The staff are exhausted? They want a day off? They can barely afford to eat?    ‘Bah, humbug! You don’t get nothing for free in this life.’    Over the course of one miserable, mizzly, Cornish night, join miserly Scrooge and a gaggle of ghostly ghouls who force him to revisit his PAST(y), explore his (Ker)NOW and decide if his FUTURE will Come-to-Good.    From the team that brought you Trevithick, The Cornish Caretakers and HIRETH, comes this irreverent, new adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic.    Weaving physical comedy, music and gags a-plenty, A CHRISTMAS CORNISH CAROL is a festive treat for the whole family.  Written by Simon Harvey and Richard Healey  Directed by Simon Harvey
