Beetroot Pie

Performed in The Attic at Cornwall's Regimental Museum as part of The Trench Bodmin
Written by Dominic Power, Directed by Michael Tonkin-Jones

At the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, the Agar-Robartes family of Lanhydrock House try to maintain their lives of aristocratic rural luxury.

Dozens of Cornishmen and women are employed in the house and grounds, and the family’s splendid houses in London, Cambridgeshire and Cornwall are hives of influence on the government.

However, their servant’s lives are also irrevocably drawn into the tragic theatre of European conflict.
Beetroot Pie, the short play written by Dominic Power and directed by Michael Tonkin-Jones, follows Eliza Treggy - widow of Lanhydrock Parish and cook at the grand house, and tells the stories of the people of Lanhydrock, as well as the saddened, grand family dependent on them throughout The Great War and into their twentieth-century lives.

NB Due to the location in the attic, there is difficult access. Anyone with limited mobility should contact us  before buying a ticket.
