THe Deep Blue Sea By Terence Rattigan

17-19 October 2013

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.

Penryn College Amphitheatre

Karnon Kidz were delighted to announce their latest show G2K Oklahoma! . . . based on that well known musical!

With 30 children, supported by an award winning team the show was a rip roaring evening, full of laughter and tears as all good shows should be.

Directed by Sam Barker and Jason Lessiter, this was their fourth collaboration and it gave them many challenges . . . the biggest being ‘how you pronounce Ado Annie’ !

The cast was led by Matt Horwell, Megan McKenna, Finn Howard, Dottie Squibb, Nathan Veall and who could forget Natallie Ballet as Aunt Eller.

This really was a showstopping production.

Princess Pavillion, Falmouth

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.
