Love is a Battlefield: a story of male passion, violence and sexual identity; a gay re-imagining of the story of Carmen.

Corporal Joe Donaldson’s suppressed sexuality finds vent only in violence, honed by his military training.  But then he meets Carl and is propelled headlong into unknown waters – the world of a celebrity boxer and infatuation with a young man whom life has taught not to trust love or commitment.

As his world crashes down around him, Joe’s confusion, and his violent instincts threaten to destroy them both.

Essentially a love story inspired by Merimée and Bizet’s immortal Carmen, Come Out Fighting explores male sexuality and its testosterone-driven links with aggression and violence.  

Two squaddies, both damaged by childhood abuse, are pitched into a desperate, sado-masochistic affair, fuelled by jealousy, anger and betrayal where fighting and sex become indistinguishable.

Can they overcome their compromised understanding of physical and emotional relationships to find what they both crave, even if they have yet to recognise what that is?  

Set against this troubled romance is the wry subplot of a gay celebrity boxer whose manager struggles to keep the nature – and insatiability – of his fighter’s sexual appetite under wraps.

Come Out Fighting has passion, action, even some comedy – and something to say to everyone.   The script manages successfully to combine a sense of gritty realism of the life of a Squaddie, of Joe’s coming out and of Carl’s hidden vulnerability, all with a certain amount of humour.

Come Out Fighting is a new play by Nick Bamford and performed by What Now Product!ons.  New to Cornwall, the company brings decades of experience to produce engaging, original, new writing for both stage and screen…..

We examine what it is to be human.. 

We reflect, we explore, we question, we look at old stories and tell them in new ways, or find out what happened next…

Come Out Fighting is funded by FEAST, national Lottery and Arts Council England.


Sha la la Joseph you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time!


One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors, along with his father Jacob and eleven jealous brothers who sell him into slavery.

Whilst Joseph is imprisoned by an Egyptian noble, he discovers he can interpret dreams and eventually becomes the Pharaoah’s right hand man as he helps end Egypt’s famine.

The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

Doors Open and Licensed Bar from 7.00pm. Show starts at 7.30pm
Saturday Matinee – Doors Open at 2.00pm. Show starts at 2.30pm

Watch The Tempest’s comedy trio here!

St Austell Players present The Tempest, Shakespeare’s classic tale of power and magic, forgiveness and revenge, complete with illusion, treachery, and Gucci handbags.

Prospero, usurped duchess of Milan, lives exiled with her daughter Miranda on an unknown island, consumed by thoughts of retribution.
When a familiar ship appears on the horizon she seizes her opportunity and enlists the help of her servant, the island spirit Ariel, to enact revenge on those responsible for her downfall and force her treacherous sister Antonio into repentance.

And thus, into The Tempest. For this is no ordinary storm, and this is no ordinary island.
