The Wounded King

Fools in the wasteland. Cracks in the kingdom. Warriors sleeping under the hill. How to heal the wounds? How to speak truth? Is it really magic, or just knowing where to look? Fragments of Arthurian legend that reflect the times we are living through now. Woven together with song and hope and humanity.

Apocalypse Kernow

OMF Theatre

16 Oct 07:00PM | £12 (£10.50 conc.)

The story focuses on what brought the zombie disease to Cornwall – it were the pasties, no, that’s Devonian propaganda. It moves on to how the Cornish deal with it, well, they don’t evacuate to Devon that’s for sure. It answers the tough questions like should you murder a zombie eating a cream tea? 

Well, only if they go cream first. Then the zombies get rights, they’re not zombies see, just people having a hard time. Come on! I bet the government will only intervene once London is affected, that’d be right.

Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare

odd & meticulous

Sun 17 Oct 2021 07:00 PM | £12 (£10.50 conc.)

“The fearful passage of their death-marked love”
We know how it ends. How did it come to this?

As we follow Romeo and Juliet, we discover how brief their brief time together is. We witness how their feelings of isolation and alienation force them to go to extreme lengths to hold onto the only person who they feel truly connected to.

Written over 400 hundred years ago, Romeo and Juliet still presents us with questions that are incredibly relevant: young love & infatuation, conformity & protest, violence & suicide.

Looking solely at the title characters, this intimate, all-male adaptation immerses the audience in the intensity, angst and infatuation of their relationship.
