One Darke Night


A show celebrating the life and work of Cornwall’s most renowned playwright, the late Nick Darke.

Fusing extracts from some of Nick’s lesser-known works such as Never Say Rabbit in a Boat and The Oven Glove Murders with firm audience favorites such as The King of Prussia and Hell’s Mouth, this wildly imaginative show explored the creative process of the writer and creates an exciting new showcase for Nick’s astonishing body of work. The show also featured exclusive extracts from Nick’s private journals and correspondence, along a series of specially-commissioned films by Brett Harvey.

One Darke Night toured small-scale venues throughout the southwest during 2011 with a cast of five performers.
