Gweek Players’ spring production will be a double bill with the theme of early cinema.

'Exposure' by Frank Whately tells the story of Eadweard Muybridge, a photographer who in the 1860s “annihilated time” by proving that a horse, when trotting, is fully airborne at every stride - thereby challenging artists’ interpretations of the preceding 3,000 years. He also shot and killed his wife’s lover.

The theatre group will recreate his photographic artistry, which captured the grandeur of the Yosemite Valley, the Indian Wars and, most significantly, the motion of the human body.

This will be supported by 'Charlie and the Siberian Monkey Goddess', a short two-hander by Don Nigro that may - or may not - capture the spirit of one of the earliest stars of the silver screen, Charlie Chaplin.

Both will be performed between May 1 and 4, at Gweek Village Hall.
