Kernow King is Trevithick!

WORLD PREMIERE!

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.

“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.”

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

Jonny & The Baptists: The End Is Nigh

 

A musical comedy about family, friendship and environmental disaster.

Last year, Jonny accidentally told his four-year-old niece that climate change would end the world. To stop her crying, he and Paddy promised to fix it. They really tried very hard…

The new show from the UK’s hottest musical comedians, THE END IS NIGH offers their most personal – and apocalyptic – venture to date. Featuring all the hallmarks of their success from barnstorming satirical rock to flights of brilliant silliness, the show blends comedy, theatre and rock gig in a captivating story of family, friendship and environmental disaster.

With ever-increasing live audiences from several hit tours and festivals, Jonny & the Baptists have been regulars on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, topped the iTunes Comedy Chart with single ‘Farage’, supported Mark Thomas on tour and recently appeared on the BBC’s Live at Television Centre.  With Four Star reviews from The Times, The Guardian and The Stage, you’d be a fool to yourself to miss this one!

‘Wickedly amusing… Who would have thought that a meditation on the politics of climate change could be so entertaining?’ THE TIMES

 ‘A spirited comedy… stirring… broad, daft and punchy’ GUARDIAN

http://www.theguardian.com/stage/2016/apr/06/jonny-and-the-baptists-review-the-end-is-nigh-orange-tree-richmond

‘A seriously funny dose of political satire, carefully constructed and full of personality, that like all great satire hides its force behind a big, contagious smile.’ THE STAGE

George Egg – Anarchist Cook

one man….one show…three courses

If you like food and cooking then you’ll like this. A cocktail of stand-up comedy, striking innovation and extreme multi-tasking.

George Egg spends a lot of time staying in hotels and some years ago, unimpressed with room service, he took matters into his own hands. Whilst performing a mind-bendingly original show of comedy-cum-illustrated-lecture George prepares a three-course meal on the equipment hotels unwittingly provide (iron, kettle, trouser press…), and if you want to, you can taste it at the end.
