An international sell-out show.

The dazzling Cube Theatre return with a magical retelling of the classic story. Using two actors and puppets, the show explores the fantastical adventures of the little puppet on the quest to become a real child.
Following rehearsals at the Tolmen Centre we present a Preview showing of this exciting new production to launch the nationwide tour.
With sharp wit, quick pace and a heavy dose of noir style, the story is told of private eye Charlie Daniels, hired by seductive Elise Hillerman to find her missing husband. Meanwhile writers Charlotte and Daniel struggle to write a script for their new show. A mindbending journey through the world of dreams, imagination and ‘real life’.
China Plate and Caroline Horton present ‘You’re not like other girls, Chrissy’
Caroline Horton’s perfectly formed one-woman-show has won her universal critical acclaim, an award from The Stage and an Olivier nomination – and it’s easy to see why. Inspired by her grandmother’s love letters, ‘You’re not like other girls Chrissy’ is a tender drama of love and loss, a nostalgic glimpse into life in occupied France and a moving tribute to a marvellous character.
Horton’s play is immaculately judged and utterly irresistible.
Tickets £10 (concessions £8)
11pm on Millennium Eve: Ancient clown Scaramouche breaks fifty years’ silence to give his final performance and charts a bizarre odyssey through crumbling empires, comic misadventures and the 20th Century’s darkest episodes, revealing the loves, the brutalities, the ecstasies and the tragedies beneath his seven white masks in an epic, poetic, profoundly moving tale.
Justin Butcher’s “Scaramouche Jones” is an international phenomenon made famous in 2000 by Pete Postlethwaite’s beautiful production. Now, directed by solo maestro Guy Masterson, Butcher makes the centenarian clown he originally created for himself brilliantly his own. “Mesmerising”…The Guardian In association with Venue Cornwall
We’ve just heard that ‘THE PRETEND MEN’ have been involved in a serious traffic accident in London. Several of the company have sustained injuries and as a result they have had to CANCEL Saturday’s performance of Police Cops at The Tolmen Centre.
Obviously Cafe Tolmen will also not be operating as there is no show.

We will try to contact all the others who have reserved tickets by phone (unfortunately there are many of them) to let them know.
The Company are enormously sorry about this, they were looking forward to bringing the show to Cornwall, and we are planning to re-schedule the show for a date to be fixed in the summer.
We extend our sympathies to all The Pretend Men, wish them speedy recovery.
We are tremendously sorry for the inconvenience caused, but the circumstances are completely beyond our control.
