    Dominion  - A Love Story

     A powerful new play touring the South West and part of the Swindon Fringe Festival.

    Siobhan Locke has a problem…apart from having cancer, that is.

    She doesn’t want her husband, Eddie, to be alone when her time finally comes. So she goes looking for a new partner for him in the Lonely Hearts adverts in the local paper.

    Eddie, too, has a problem. As much as he adores his wife, since the diagnosis, he cannot find it in himself to get close to her. He would do anything for her, but there seems to be no way to resolve it.

    Then, after an embarrassing argument with Kelly, Siobhan’s old nurse, Holly Fenton arrives on the scene. A new nurse, a new start; unfortunately, in the dim and distant past, Eddie had been at school with Holly, which begins to put a brake on Siobhan’s plans and sparks something she had never thought feel again: jealousy.

    Then, of course, there’s The Man. Siobhan’s constant companion. Is he just in her imagination, a drug-induced fantasy…or something more sinister? After all, only Siobhan can see him and he seems to have only her best interests at heart.

    ‘Dominion’ traces the delicate and ultimately, tender journey made by two people who thought that their love was all they would ever need…and, in the end, discover that possibly, just possibly, they were right all along.

    'Let Me Be Me'

    A typical day! Grandma is ignoring her, she’s been splatted with dog poo and her head’s been shoved down the school toilet. What she really wants to know is……. what’s the punch line?

    Born into a world where any deviation is reviled, our free spirited and comic heroine journeys from rejection towards acceptance confronted by a grumpy grandma and jealous sibling, scornful class-mates, and lowlifes who aren’t on their Marx.

    Buffoons, bigotry and banter – at a venue near you.

    Kernow King 'Trevitick'Palores Productions

    'Trevithick!'
    starring
    Kernow King
    and
    Mary Woodvine

    Written by Edward Rowe
    Directed by Simon Harvey

    "Trevithick!" is a biographical comedy that will light a fire in your bellies, bring joy to your heart and set your brain whirring like a four way valve on a steam engine. This is the true story of a man who was as much an artist and magician as he was an engineer.

    Born in Tregajorran in Cornwall, Richard Trevithick revolutionised the use of steam as a successful and profitable means of energy, much to the annoyance of his rivals.  Industrial developments were rife with competition, fear, accidents and death  in 1800 Great Britain, but it was Trevithick's passion and genius that led to steam power being put on rails and roads- the first trains and cars.  Although it was never easy.

    "Trevithick!"
    is ‘bursting’ with music, comedy and facts and still relevant to the world we live in today. It  accurately brings to the stage the story of a man who was so dedicated and obsessed by engineering, he left his family in Cornwall whilst he mined in South America for eleven years.

    "Trevithick!" is the gripping story of not just one of Cornwall's greatest sons, but one of the greatest men in history, steeped in accolade and loved by many but who's life was tinged with tragedy.

    Directed by Kneehigh's Associate Director Simon Harvey, starring Kernow King and much loved actress, Mary Woodvine.

    "Sometimes I imagine myself to be my statue down Camborne, gazing out over those roundabouts.... watching the cars, lorries and motorbikes bombing along.

    The ingenuity in all that machinery going on... .. the pistons, the pumps, the fumes, the exhausts, the fuel.... it's all so easy now."

    Funny man Johnny Cowling is fast becoming Cornwall’s Premier Entertainer. Johnny’s been delighting audienceJohnny Cowlings for over 10 years with his unique brand of Cornish wit, charm and charisma.Imagine a pinch of Jethro,a dab of Michael Barrymore, a spoonful of Tommy Cooper and a hunk of Elvis all rolled into one, and you have the amazing Johnny Cowling ! Johnny has a natural likeability that makes him hugely popular with audiences. He is an entertainer who likes to get among his audience during his shows.  His spontaneous rapport makes him a winner with audiences of all ages.“One of our great undiscovered comedy talents… a brilliant, true entertainer, who could make anybody laugh.”  Fern Britton

    He has a wealth of tales and yarns to spin, on topics ranging from the ever changing face of Cornwall, to Ladies appliances, Cornish Family life, holiday makers and much, much more.

    When Johnny isn’t entertaining in his native Cornwall, he is in great demand in London, giving studio warm-ups for top television shows such as Take Me Out, Dancing on Ice, Celebrity Juice, Strictly Come Dancing, and Britain’s Got Talent.

    He’s also been seen all over the UK supporting Paddy McGuiness on tour and he’s also perfomed warm-ups for Ben Elton, Jack Whitehall, & Johnny Vegas.

    Johnny’s popularity continues to grow, due to his regular show on Cornwall’s Pirate FM.

    Often cheeky, but never offensive, Johnny’s stories leave audiences helpless with laughter.  In between his hilarious anecdotes, Johnny gives his audiences a chance to catch their breath by showing his comedy talents are equally matched by his vocal ability.

    His clear Cornish voice makes every song easy on the ear and has a choice of songs to please one and all – although, often his most requested are the Gospel songs of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

    It’s not long, though, before comedy is back on the agenda, ensuring that an evening spent in the company of Johnny Cowling is both side splitting and heart lifting!

    Mike Hatchard : Cycling 'LEJOG' - with a Piano !  (raising money for Children in Need).

    Mike Hatchard LEJOG with a Piano

    A wonderful evening of music & humour
    “… like Victor Borge – on acid!”  The Scotsman

    Virtuoso pianist, singer/songwriter and raconteur, Mike Hatchard is cycling, with an electric piano in tow, from Land’s End to John O’Groats, to raise money for the BBC’s Children in Need charity.

    Starting his journey at the open-air Minack Theatre, Mike will make his way along the South Coast, before heading North to Scotland via the Edinburgh Festival (1,400 miles in all! )

    Mike Hatchard has had an extraordinarily diverse career as a musician. He began as the pianist for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, and toured America as Cleo Laine’s accompanist as a member of the John Dankworth Quintet and became Matt Monro’s youngest ever musical director.

    However, a penchant for cartooning and comedy made his career take some unexpected turns. He invented a character ‘Marvin Hanglider’, and for many years performed at the Edinburgh Festival, described in The Scotsman as a ‘fringe staple.’

    He toured as musical director for comedienne Pamela Stephenson, and co-wrote songs with Frankie Howerd and Spike Milligan. For many years he was closely associated with Herbie Flowers (of Sky fame) which included all sorts of work in prisons, in schools and at the Southbank (Mike has also performed his one man show twice at the Purcell Rooms) and in disabled centres.

    He has also worked with David Essex, the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, Barbara Thompson’s Paraphernalia, the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, Julia Migenes Johnson, Liane Carroll, Alan Barnes, George Martin and Tina May.

    Recently his career went full circle when he was asked to compere Cleo Laine’s eighty-fifth birthday concert at Wavendon, and also appeared alongside Cleo in the celebrated Christmas Shows to packed audiences.

    With over forty concerts along the way, in every type of venue imaginable, this really is a labour of love.

    Unspoken Speaking

    Premiere of brand new St Austell Players musical production

    “Unspoken Speaking”   by Ben Warwick and Tom Gardner

    Songs by Ben Warwick, featuring renowned choir Sounds Original
    Incidental music by Tom Gardner

    Unspoken Speaking is a powerful piece of drama set in the current day.

    While it deals with the way that people often say one thing but mean another, or show thoughts and emotions without speaking at all, the work explores a much deeper level of the unspoken word – from how things are not said aloud but through the social media screen to how the fear of what ‘other people might say’ can drive people’s actions.

    Unspoken Speaking is a play set against a series of haunting and emotive songs performed by a mixed-voice choir, which are sung as the action of the play takes place in front of them, each having a terrific impact on the effect of the other.

    The songs have been professionally orchestrated by internationally renowned composer and arranger Aaron Latina. 

    The plot follows the lives of friends, Rhys and James (who have grown up together since infancy sharing everything “from bath-time to chicken-pox”), exploring the complexities of confusions and identities as they grow up and the fine line between what makes people united friends and, as in this case, hostile strangers.

    However, as the play unfolds, the turmoil of the relationship between Rhys and his very controlling mother also emerges as she is tormented, driven and totally influenced by the strength and force of a character who appears on stage with her, but who remains totally silent throughout and is in effect not actually there…….

    An energetic, supporting cast provide the backdrop for the principal characters in a series of situations that provide some very moving, some very comical and some very touching, thought-provoking moments – but it is up to the audience to leave the theatre ultimately to decide what was the main story-line and “what happens next” following a very last minute twist.

    Please come along to support the premiere of this totally new play featuring beautiful, original songs and incidental music.

    Ben Maggs 'Come As You Are' TourAward winning critically acclaimed ‘Contemporary Folk’ Artist Ben Maggs returns to Cornwall following his hugely successful Hall for Cornwall support of The Proclaimers in June, to ‘enchant’ and ‘mesmerise’ with his 'songs that will leave your heart tingling by the final stanza’. 

    Ben’s live show has been hailed by the music press as ‘mesmerising’, ‘crackling with creativity’, ‘outstanding’ and ‘magnificent’, and his latest album ‘Come As You Are’ was met equally effusively and enthusiastically.

    The last year has seen Ben headlining all over the UK, playing to ‘awe-inspired audiences' and also supporting The Proclaimers at sell out shows - having to decline the crowd’s unanimous cries for an encore to make sure the main act could be on stage on time!

    Always inspired by the nature of life and love, and his love of life and nature, Ben has continued to write and create new tapestries with the colourful threads of his ‘stunningly beautiful vocals’, melodies and poetic lyrics, all wrapped in the warmth of artfully played acoustic guitar.  Some songs are further enriched by his unique, sensitive and creative use of a loop pedal or rhythmic ‘one man band’ foot powered cajon and tambourine.

    This super talented Singer/Songwriter is a real tour de force and not to be missed.

    BBC Introducing ‘gorgeous music’

    Acoustic Magazine ‘so impressive’

    Maverick Magazine **** ‘his voice is utterly unique & individual’ ‘mesmerising’

    God is in the TV Zine ‘a set that crackles with creativity & ambition’

    AAA MUSIC **** ‘enchanting & mesmerising’ ‘an amazingly bright artist who captivates an audience’

    Fatea Magazine ‘shimmering vocals & lush finger picked guitar’

    After Dark Magazine ‘beautiful, honest well written songs from the heart’

    Whisperin and Hollerin **** ‘versatile & extremely strong vocalist’

    dead-of-night_550_fullFilm : 'Dead Of Night'   (1945)

    Directors: Alverto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden and Robert Hamer

    Cast includes: Roland Culver, Mervyn Johns, Googie Withers and Michael Redgrave

    An eve of Halloween treat for those who like their horror  with a hint of the Gothic!

    Dead of Night
    may have been made over 70 years ago, but it is still one of the scariest movies ever made.

    Dead of Night
    receives a rare public, pre-Halloween, screening at the St Austell Arts Centre on the afternoon of Sunday 30th October.

    Do not attend alone if you are of a nervous disposition!

    The film does not have the predictable blood and gore, zombies or unbelievable “ghostie-whosties”; instead, it relies on creating genuine fear caused by psychological mindgames and the dread of the unknown.

    Rated as high as 96% on the Rotten Tomatoes website, Dead of Night is a chilling anthology of horror stories that play on all of our innermost fears.

    A man is summoned to a house with a group of strangers he has never met before, but has seen in his dreams. As they convene, he predicts certain events will happen as they do in his dreams and when they do, the other guests relate their own experiences with the supernatural, including tales of a possessed mirror, a sinister ventriloquist's dummy and an eerie premonition of death.

    Throughout the group meeting, the man fears something horrible will happen to him.

    The film's final, revelatory sequence offers an unexpectedly horrific surprise.

    The black and white cinematography, atmospheric music and the quintessentially “Englishness” of the 1940s middle classes all add to the tension, suspense and period of the piece that produces genuinely terrifying moments, creating an unforgettable experience, with images that are guaranteed to remain with whoever sees the film for the rest of their lives.

    Each separate story has a different Director but are linked by a common thread that makes the film one of the finest and most imaginatively crafted horror films ever made, influencing many more contemporary films in the genre.

    The spine-tingling stories involve a hearse driver, Christmas party and a haunted mirror.  A more light-hearted section based on an H G Wells story helps to balance the films more menacing moments.

    However, the film’s most terrifying and memorable story is kept until last.

    It tells the genuinely scary tale of a ventriloquist whose dummy comes to terrifying life and was the inspiration behind the 1978 Anthony Hopkins film “Magic”.

    He has written columns for The Guardian and Red Pepper and has written three books : When Did You Last See Your Father, a spoof childcare guide; Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation, based on the radio series; and My Family and Other Strangers,  an examination of his lacklustre ancestry, published last year.

    More importantly, he is still a stand-up comic, performing his one-man show in theatres and arts centres throughout Britain and Ireland. He is also part of the live touring version of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.

    A kind soul in The Guardian wrote of him, “In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material.”
