(ACT44) Plen An Gwari: The Playing Places Of Cornwall -  Will Coleman

An illustrated lecture celebrating the extraordinary medieval theatre culture of Cornwall, explaining why the tradition flourished and died, and why it is so important for an understanding of Cornish history.

Will Coleman, who calls himself a ‘cultural entrepreneur’, speculates about what attending such a spectacle would have been like and whether there are contemporary cultural lessons to be learned.

His book, Plen an Gwari: The Playing Places of Cornwall, also helps to locate local plen an gwari (playing place) sites.

PS. He is also ‘that Man Engine bloke’.
