As part of the physical events happening across the festival weekend in partnership with Launceston Town Council we are delighted to bring you Star Crazy – a Miracle Theatre production!
It is written & Directed by Bill Scott with original Music by Tom Adams…
For just over an hour you will be transported back to October 1957 where the world lives in fear of nuclear armageddon, Russia has launched Sputnik 1, UFOs are cropping up everywhere, MI5 is on high alert and Stanley is building something in his garden shed.
He may live in suburbia but, in his mind, Stanley is voyaging through outer space. He hopes to make contact with other life forms. His neighbour, Gwen, thinks he should be exploring the unknown much closer to home…
Open air and set in the beautiful grounds of Launceston Castle, this is a truly delightful comedy about obsession and the rekindling of love, hope and possibility.
Everyone is welcome, but as a guide we recommend the show for ages 7+
The Miracle tours are original, inventive, comic theatre playing across Cornwall and the UK. Its rich mix of touring work includes classic plays, new writing and Shakespeare and visits open-air and indoor venues.
Established in 1979, Miracle is one of the South West’s key arts organisations. It produces a rich mix of touring theatre, always with a unique comic style, joyful use of language and an immediate visual appeal. It embraces digital technology and nurtures new writers, performers, venues and promoters. Miracle works with promoters to build audiences by bringing ‘big’ shows to little venues; it is committed to touring work which is innovative, but not intimidating, to communities in the far flung corners of the UK. Miracle is caretaker of the Miracle Space: a hub for small-scale theatre in the South West.
