Cornwall Youth Theatre: Caucasian Chalk Circle Caucasian chalk circle graphic

Grampound Hall is pleased to be in its 11th year of partnership with Cornwall Youth Theatre. This year CYT bring us The Caucasian Chalk Circle, a masterpiece of 20th century drama, powerfully demonstrating Bertolt Brecht’s pioneering theatrical techniques. A servant girl sacrifices everything to protect a baby abandoned in the heat of war. Order restored, she is made to confront the boy’s mother in a legal contest over who deserves to keep him. The comical judge calls on an ancient tradition, "the chalk circle" to resolve the dispute. Who wins?

Grampound Film Club: I Daniel Blake IDanielBlake

Daniel Blake, 59, who has worked as a joiner most of his life in the North East of England needs help from the State for the first time ever following an illness. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one roomed homeless hostel in London is to accept a flat some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy now played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

The LOST will and testament of Jake Thackray Lostwill

For the past three years John Watterson has been researching to write the first ever biography on the late Jake Thackray, with the help of Jake’s family, friends, fellow performers and the BBC. In the course of this research, John has uncovered 15 songs written by Jake but not released (some being banned from broadcast by the BBC!). These fabulous songs – hilarious, serious, bitingly satirical - along with never-before told stories from the biography research (plus some much loved Jake classics) will feature in John’s brand new show for 2017 ‘The LOST Will and Testament of Jake Thackray’. 

John has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Great Lives’ on Jake (listen here) and discussions are underway about a possible radio documentary in 2017 on the discovery of these lost gems.

Tickets £9/£7
