You only have to walk through any of Cornwall’s old cemeteries to come across graves that hint at intrigue, adventure and the county’s mining heritage, their stories all lost to the sands of time. This month a new theatre company is aiming to bring those characters back to life by staging magical theatre walks through Redruth’s historic St Euny churchyard
From May 18 to May 21, Perthi Kov (Cornish for ‘Remember’), a community company that combines the talents of some of Cornwall’s most exciting theatre markers, writers, musicians and actors, will be bringing to life the stories of fascinating characters at rest in the grounds of the ‘mining church’.
Guides will take audience members on a 75-minute journey to meet extraordinary characters in the shadow of Carn Brea, and to travel through time and across the globe, as the residents recall their lives. An exhibition of Perthi Kov’s research, and creative work with community group, WILD, will be in the church to explore, with refreshments, after the show.
