The first part of the Camborne play was read by Kevin, Phil and David in the studio today.
This is one of the few remaining plays left that were performed in Playing places, or plain an gwarry, all over Cornwall. They had a religious theme but were very like mummers plays.
This play was translated by Myrna combellack and was first performed in the 80s in St Pauls church Truro directed by Gerry Finch.
All three parts are included in the book which is available to buyfrom Dyllansow Truran.

Saturday 4th feb

Two things about today.
Storytelling for national library day involved me reading and telling stories. Most of the kids wereVERY young but all took part in Jack and the beanstalk including a baby who played the lady who gives Jack the magic beans in exchange for his cow. Her mum said she liked cows. Emu made an appearance to some delight and some fear! It was the usual chaos but as I am used to that it doesn't worry me if they wander off mid sentance. Stayed the whole 2 hours.
This evening compered the GOT edition of the X factor although it was more GOT talent! There was a huge amount of talent though ranging from being Dr Who to piano playing and a tiny lad as James Morrison. Nice venue and great atmosphere. There was cake too, always a good sign! More cake, especially fruit cake.
I think I may be in the paper next week.

Anita and Ali's show Feb 3rd 2012

Anita and Ali read some great stories today on the show and both said how creative writing in education had helped them both. They both said how they would have written anyway but that courses had helped them to take and give criticism to their own and othrs work. Anitas poem will be in the next issue of poetry cornwall and is out in march.
There was music today from Keith Wilson in Bissoe blues, Bob Devereux and his poem Oak and Paul Farmer Fire in marakesh from his film New Reed.
