Live theatre under the dramatic flying flotilla
Following a disturbance at Bells Court, an old shell-backer leaves his home in Falmouth for a new life at sea. He finds himself the leader of a gang of hardened sailors and hungry fisherman, all desperate for the next catch – and their next tot of rum!
Along with their newest recruit, who must quickly learn the ropes, they face all that the wild ocean can throw at them. Based on the historical figures and events in Falmouth, Canvas and Rum is a maelstrom of shanties, sirens, superstitions and seasick sailors. Brought to you by North South Theatre.
