Louisa

LOUISA is the incredible true story of how on one stormy night in January 1899, the communities of Lynton & Lynmouth and Porlock rallied in a raging storm to save all the souls of the Forest Hall; a ship foundering in the Bristol channel.

With the help of horses and sheer determination, they dragged the heavy lifeboat Louisa thirteen miles across open moor to launch it from Porlock Weir and saved everyone on board.

This visceral new play uses physical theatre and Sea Shanties over 80 minutes to tell the extraordinary tale. The story of the Louisa is testament to the resilience and courage of a small community achieving extraordinary things in exceptional circumstances.

Exmoor-based Pleasure Dome Theatre Company partnering with the RNLI hope everyone will leave energised and hopeful about what can be achieved when people work together.

 

Theatre open from 6.15pm. Bar available.

The Canterbury Tales

Welcome to ‘The Canterbury’, an Olde English Inn,
Infamous around these parts for villainy and sin.
The floor is caked in sawdust, for soaking up the spit,
And the air is thick with stories told with wisdom, guile and wit.
Some stories are romantic, some are bawdy, others scary
And there are tales about the devil that should make you oh so wary,
Some are beautifully poetic and some a little coarser;
A medieval medley from the pen of Geoffrey Chaucer!

From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Great Expectations’, ‘Dracula’ and ‘The Odyssey’ comes a one-man performance of ‘The Canterbury Tales’.

Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, ‘The Canterbury Tales’ paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the middle-ages.

All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness!

Expect naughtiness, nonsense and medieval swearing!
It’s rude! It’s ribald! It’s ridiculous! Let’s party like it’s 1387!

This is Chaucer… but not as you think you know it!

Suitable for adults and older children (12+)

Director: Simon Harvey
Performer: David Mynne
Associate Director: David Twomlow
Script (very loosely adapted from the original!) by Simon Harvey, David Mynne and Anna Maria Murphy

A Christmas Carol

 DAVID MYNNE performs Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Joy to all mankind? Bah!

Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Bah!

Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts (wooo-oooh) each one more terrifying than the last. Bah!

Sob at the bedside of a tiny, malnourished child riven with rickets. Bah!

Stagger through the dark, dirty, dismal streets of Victorian London. Bah!

This is Dickens’ original words with added silliness. Silliness? Bah! BAH!

Celebrate the festive season with a mesmerising one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story: A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Bah! Humbug!

Suitable for adults and older children (9+)
