‘Hamlet’, 2004

With the help of the Arts Council, a new pink van was purchased, with space for the set, lights, costumes, props and up to seven people and set off to tour, a fast-moving thriller, propelled by a streamlined text and strong physical performances. Costumes, music and dance all had a non-specific far eastern flavour, the whole thing played out in a hall of mirrors. These distorted the reflections of characters – but unfortunately also concentrated the rays of the sun. The cast returned after a break on a very hot day to find the stage in flames. ‘To laugh or not to laugh.’

‘20,000 Leagues under the Sea’, 2004

A contemporary tale, very loosely based on of Jules Verne’s classic, with back-projected scenery and a giant octopus. Kids from schools in Penzance and Plymouth contributed artwork and an underwater ballet.
