'A Cornish Carol'
Friday, 6th 1.00pm & 7.00pm
Saturday, 7th - 7.00pm
Starring Ed Rowe, Jenny Beare and Mary Woodvine
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 Cornish Carol is a festive treat for the whole family.
Starring : Edward Rowe, Jenny Beare & Mary Woodvine

Kneehigh Theatre favourite & co-founder Dave Mynne, last seen in Kneehigh's Fup, playing Grandad, now takes on Charles Dickens' perennial much-loved Christmas tale, A Christmas Carol.
Joy to all mankind?
Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser.
Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts(wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last.
Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets.
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.
Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A Christmas Carol.
Suitable for adults and older children (10+)
Directed by Simon Harvey.
Performed by David Mynne.
Adapted by Andrew McPherson.
Additional script by Simon Harvey and David Mynne.
David Mynne is a Cornish actor and a founder member of Kneehigh Theatre.
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". Richard Wolfenden-Brown: Director The Plough Arts Centre.
What the audience said:
“Just brilliant! We loved The Odyssey and this was even better. Thank you!"
"Incredible performance... and by one man! Very enjoyable for kids, parents and grumpy dads!"
"Absolutely the best show I’ve seen this year."
"It was incredible. He must know the book inside out! “God bless us, everyone”!
"Excellent. Inventive and creative."
Fun? Call that fun? Bah, Humbug!"
