Date: Wednesday 29th May 2019
Riot & Lobsters
Audiences will be enthralled by a unique evening of music first created for plays including Ting Tang Mine, The Bogus, The King of Prussia, and The Riot, toured nationally by Kneehigh in the 1990s.
All the music has been re-imagined and arranged by the original composer Jim Carey, and played by his 8-piece multi-instrumentalist band, The Saboteurs.
We’ll travel on a musically diverse, story-rich journey from America to Cornwall, telling tales of riots and lobsters, fishermen and miners, corrupt officials and power-driven politicians, pioneers, saboteurs, love and redemption, of course not forgetting the classic yarn about the stomach of a horse that lands on someone’s head!
These diverse and poignant songs easily cross stylistic boundaries, sometimes folk songs, sometimes ska or swing.
Over the course of one fantastic evening lyrical laments, ballads and brass will all tell the stories and bring to life the worlds created by Darke & Carey.
