Event Details

Set ‘sometime in the future’, a jaded detective looks back on his early career as a young crime-fighter in the 2020s - the days of fake news, a world pandemic and global warming.

In a playful homage to the film-noir genre, with a voice- over narration and live musical accompaniment, including piano and accordion, four performers play a multitude of characters.

There is topical intrigue, mistaken identities and silent comedy as the storyline follows the fortunes of an inept cameraman who inadvertently becomes the main witness in an international robbery worth millions of dollars – the theft of the Covid vaccine formula.

With influences as diverse as Tintin, Roger Rabbit, Humphrey Bogart and Buster Keaton, The Cameraman presents a comic, and essentially optimistic, commentary on the current crisis from a future point of view.

Based in Penzance, the company has built an international reputation for silent-comedy, musical, street theatre shows. Since our first performance, in Morlaix, France in 1991, we have created over 20 different productions and toured to major festivals throughout the UK and Europe, as well as in Israel, Egypt, Turkey, China, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
