This summer Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland.
With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O’ Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland’s great comic geniuses.
Flann O’ Brien’s scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracle’s delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination. Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected!
This show will be a Highlight of Season2017 – Early booking is recommended!
Miracle Theatre are at Penlee Park on
Tuesday, 22nd and Wednesday, 23rd August
