'Canvas & Rum'
Set during the 1800's, ‘Canvas & Rum' is a maritime theatre piece sailing between the South Sea whalers and the historical Falmouth packet ships, looking at the life of an old shell-backer who left his home in Kernow.
This old sea dog takes on the duty of teaching a new crew the ropes on board the ocean going ship. Bad luck strikes the vessel and its crew, forcing the return home that had been avoided for decades.
Inspired by tales such as ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Heart of the Sea,’ but based on historical figures and events in Falmouth, Canvas & Rum is a maelstrom of shanties, sirens, superstitions and sea-sick sailors.

Evenings can be cool, so warm clothing is often best even in mid-summer. Rain and adverse weather does not stop our performances. If it’s safe to do so, we carry on, so be prepared with appropriate clothing (no umbrellas).
There will be weather in which it is impossible to go ahead with the show. In this instance we will give enough warning of cancelation and offer full refunds to any cancelled tickets.
