Welcome to Cornwall (the one you might not know about), with Gray Lightfoot at THE ACORN
Friday 7th July 2023
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This evening with local poet Gray Lightfoot is a performance of poetry (by himself), a one-act play (with two actors) and two short stories, ‘The Triumph of Goliathia Tremayne’ by Catherine Leyshon and ‘Up Frogs’ by Ross James (which we hope will be read by the authors). These address the issues that make Cornwall the second poorest region in Northern Europe, of which the millions of holidaymakers often remain unaware. Gray’s drama Sea Fear is a conversation between an old poet and a young Redruth mother whose children have never been to the beach. It is set on Carn Brea – and has a happy ending.
