A Monologue

Mary Martin is back in her home town. As she walks the streets, the Towans and the beaches, her past floods to the present, awakening memories that simmer just beneath the surface of her otherwise happy life. Mary walks paths well trodden, searching for the meaning of home, family and forgiveness, as the grip of expectation tightens. 


A monologue performed by Mary Woodvine (Bait, Enys Men), written by Sarah Connors and directed by Olivier-Award-winning Simon Harvey. Coming to venues across Cornwall in Spring. Productions followed by a post-show discussion with invited guests. 


Generously supported by FEAST, KEAP and Hall for Cornwall.


A Play

Originally a Seed commission by Sphinx Theatre, Levelling - now a full-length play - is currently in development with emerging director Millie Jones (Kneehigh, Wildworks).

Levelling is a play that explores the impact of the gentrification of Cornwall.

Pushing On Open Doors (2023/24)

A Play

"A tender yet unsparing new play about where we find refuge."

For years, Maud has kept her grandson Art well away from the busybodies and bullies in the town. He’s different, and they don’t understand. When the enigmatic Pauly and ethereal Fee rescue Art from difficulty, they seem a blessing and are welcomed as guests. Slowly at first, and then frighteningly swiftly, things spiral out of Maud’s control. As the dark truth about the newcomers emerges, a fight for the home and family begins.


Originally workshopped with award-winning director Audrey Sheffield (2021), this Irish play is currently being developed to reflect Cornwall's vulnerability to the County Lines crisis.  Pushing On Open Doors was a finalist for the prestigious Papatango Prize.
