Thursday 31 May, 7.30pm

Official Hells Mouth Poster

A game of chicken on the Tamar Bridge ends in tragedy, civil war looms in war torn Cornwall. In a cynical bid to placate the press and suppress the locals, who are in revolt, a clay worker and part time rock star from St Stephen is elevated to the position of Duke. Only feisty local girl Gonietta can stand in the way of Cornwall’s subjugation.

Post apocalyptic, passionate and poignant, Hells Mouth is Nick Darke’s retelling of Greek tragedy Antigone – directed by Simon Harvey and Sam Colborne and performed by HFC Youth Theatre.

Drinks & networking event in the bar from 6.15pm.

One Darke Night With O-Region

A new show celebrating the work of Nick Darke
Produced by o-region

Following the success of 2010’s Superstition Mountain, o-region returns with a new show celebrating the life and work of Cornwall’s most renowned playwright, Nick Darke.

Fusing extracts from lesser-known works with firm audience favourites such as The King of Prussia and Hell’s Mouth, and featuring exclusive extracts from Nick’s private journals and correspondence, this wildly imaginative show explores the creative process of the writer and creates an exciting new showcase for Nick’s astonishing body of work.

Combining bold staging, specially commissioned film and a cast of five versatile performers, One Darke Night will be touring to small-scale venues during 2011.
