A seductive stranger opens a fantastical world to a tormented woman.
But everything comes at a price…
In the mind of the fantasist, the real and the fanciful become dangerously blurred. As Louise gazes into the night her fancy takes form. Objects move, time changes … and a seductive stranger opens up a world of exhilaration and magic.
Following an acclaimed international tour and 5 star sell-out success at Edinburgh Fringe 2012, The Fantasist comes to The Tolmen Centre for one night only, melding original music, life-sized puppetry, and physical theatre. War Horse’s Robin Guiver teams up with Lecoq and LISPA trained Theatre Temoin in an emotionally powerful exploration of bipolar disorder.
“What the show does so well via the puppetry is to get you right inside Louise’s mind and make you understand both the confusion and yet also the the terrible glimmering lure of a world of bright lights and butterflies.” …Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The Paper Cinema
A bewitching new production based on ghostly tales. Beguiling pen and ink drawings are magically brought to life by two puppeteers and a projector to create a unique, animated film. They are joined by a hugely talented ensemble of multi-instrumentalists performing the atmospheric soundtrack live on stage.
‘RELEASE’ explores the lives of three prisoners in their first few months after release, as they attempt to reconnect with the people and remnants of life they left behind.
“A sharp, impeccably performed and blazingly impassioned piece of theatre…simply terrific.”
Tickets £9, £8, Children £4
Stalag Happy is a funny and moving account of a truly inspiring story, portrayed through the use of sharp, comic, often touching dialogue – imaginative and inventive design – and a suitably nostalgic 1940s soundtrack.
Stalag Happy is a new play dramatising the true story of the abstract artists Sir Terry Frost and Adrian Heath whilst interned in the German POW camp Stalag 383 between 1941 – 45. “Edward Elks and Dan Frost were simply splendid… As thought provoking as it was touching… Well worth seeing twice.”…The Cornishman Tickets £8, £7 – Children £4 In association with Carn to Cove
