The Stythians Ghost (2006)
Near-ta Theatre were back for more of the same at Falmouth Arts Centre with their adaptation of the traditional Cornish folk-tale, The Stythians Ghost.
Based on a tale collected by William Bottrell for his book Traditions and Hearthside Stories of West Cornwall and freely adapted by Near-ta Theatre, the play seeks to give answers to the profound questions of the human condition:
Does the soul survive bodily death?
Does God interfere in the affairs of man?
Is diced carrot ever an acceptable ingredient in a Cornish pasty?
Directed by Daniel Richards and Lewis Howard and performed by a young cast, The Stythians Ghost was a comic but frightening experience for all the family!
