This ambitious production was performed by our younger members. It was fantastic and certainly not a simple piece to do. The songs were not easy but how well everyone sang them – we have some lovely voices emerging from this group, so WELL DONE all of you. And of course congratulations to Sam Barker and her hardworking team for making it possible.
Perranwell Boys 1914 was an original play written by Carnon Downs Drama Group Member, David Ivall.
The play set mainly in the trenches of France, followed the fortunes of a section of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry through the autumn of 1914.
Bevis Trinick, a young gentleman, and Alfred Dingle, a labouring lad, both join the regiment and end up in the same unit on the Western Front, Bevis as a lieutenant, Alfred as a private. The play follows their journey from Perranwell village, to the trenches, a field hospital and a French cafe.
Although, with such a theme, no one could expect a happy ending, there was plenty of humour and songs of the period along the way.

The “Deep Blue Sea” is set in Sept 1951 in a Britain that is still feeling the effects of the 2nd World War. It shows a profound understanding of the complexities of love in a set of characters realistically portrayed with unspoken feelings, buried emotions and hidden truths that fuel the comedy and drama.
The action begins with the discovery by her neighbours of Hester Collyer who has tried and failed to commit suicide. Sometime before, she left her husband, a respectable High Court Judge who is baffled by her rejection, for a semi-alcoholic ex R.A.F. pilot who hasn’t found a replacement for the thrill of the Battle of Britain and can’t match Hester’s sexual and emotional needs.
Her despair is recognised and understood by Mr Miller a refugee from Germany, interned and then struck off from medical practice following a notorious scandal. The aftershocks of her attempted suicide unravel throughout the play.
Widely regarded as Rattigan’s best play it is a complete exploration of his obsessive theme, the inequality of passion.
This amateur production of “The Deep Blue Sea” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.

This was our first outing to Princess Paviion in Falmouth and we were all very excited about performing “Cinderella”, a traditional pantomime for all the family.
Those who came along joined in with all their favourite characters as this magical fairy-tale unfolded with fun and laughter.
You could only admire our youngsters as they performed to rocking music that got everyone jiggling in their seats and were amazed as the fairies work ‘a kind of magic’ to ensure Cinders got to the ball.
Tradition dictated a happy ending but just who would marry who? February used to be a dull month but not anymore, Panto was back in town.
