This summer Cornwall's Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland. With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O'Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland's great comic geniuses. O'Brien's scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracle's delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination. Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected as Miracle Theatre return to the Artsreach circuit this summer! Please note that these are open-air performances. Bring a cushion or rug to sit on, pack a picnic and wear warm/weatherproof clothing as appropriate.
