The producer and designer of Scaramouche – Guy Masterson – will bring us his own celebrated and renowned solo version of the great Dylan Thomas ‘play for voices’ with all the design and production values that his company has become famous for. It has played all over the world – they’re just back from the Adelaide festival – and this is one of only a handful of productions licenced by the Dylan Thomas estate. Guy plays every one of the enormous range of characters in what is justly described as a tour de force. For just one night in Cornwall – only at The Tolmen Centre May 9th at 7.30
The Wardrobe Theatre brings you another of its signature, darkly comic, grownup shows – a loving, playful fusion of the boxing classic with the cross-dressing cult musical masterpiece. A scary-sexy,knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt.

This remarkable feelgood play written by Duncan Macmillan, presented ‘in the round’ by the brilliant comedic actor Jonny Donahoe, swept everything aside at Edinburgh 2014 and has followed that with runs in London, just recently sixteen (yes sixteen!) weeks Off Broadway in New York, and last month success at the Brighton Festival. It has been tremendously well received by audiences and critics alike.
We booked it at once having seen it last summer, and we are delighted to have the only performance in Cornwall on this UK nationwide tour.
It’s a play that cannot fail to move you to tears but then have you burst out laughing. As Lyn Gardner described it “one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression .. and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see full stop.” It redefines the word life-affirming.
On the surface, it’s the simple telling of a story of how a young boy deals with his mother’s depression, trying to help by writing a list of all the ‘brilliant things’ he can think of to cheer her up. But the story develops – involving and absorbing the audience – into the boy’s life story: by the time he has grown into manhood, he discovers that the continuously evolving list has become his own personal blueprint for a healthy life.
Donahoe is a warm and personable performer — so warm and personable, he doesn’t even seem to be performing as much as taking the audience into his confidence.
Not only is his emotionally damaged character willing to share his precepts for a happy life with his audience, the audience become collaborators in his story.
This is a play you should not miss, literally ‘one of a kind’
