The Stythians Ghost

Near-ta Theatre were back for more of the same at Falmouth Arts Centre with their adaptation of the traditional Cornish folk-tale, ‘The Stythians Ghost’.


Based on a tale collected by William Bottrell for his book ‘Traditions and Hearthside Stories of West Cornwall’ and freely adapted by Near-ta Theatre, the play seeks to give answers to the profound questions of the human condition:


Does the soul survive bodily death?

Does God interfere in the affairs of man?

Is diced carrot ever an acceptable ingredient in a Cornish pasty?


Directed by Daniel Richards and Lewis Howard and performed by a young cast, ‘The Stythians Ghost’ was a comic but frightening experience for all the family!
