An internationally acclaimed theatre company is returning to Constantine's Tolmen Centre next month.

1927 Theatre has risen from their Edinburgh Fringe beginnings to become the darlings of cutting edge theatre.  

Its unique combination of projected animation, witty and subversive storytelling, and live music makes for irresistible and entertaining theatre, which has played across the world in hundreds of venues across five continents.

Their shows Golem and The Animals and Children took to the Streets are still touring the world along with acclaimed interpretations of Mozarts’s Magic Flute with Berlin’s Comische Opera.

The company has had a longstanding association with The Tolmen Centre, where their early shows played to sell out audiences some years ago, and where the early development of Golem took place. 

Principal animator Paul Barritt hails from Cornwall, where his family still live.

Now, 1927 are to return to The Tolmen Centre to complete rehearsals of their new show ‘ROOTS ’ at the end of April, prior to the  world premiere in America in May and UK premiere at the Edinburgh Festival in August.

Witty, stylish and subversive, the  company has unearthed a catalogue  of little-known folk tales, that offer a fascinating glimpse into the imaginations of our forebears.

As part of the arrangement, the Tolmen audience will be treated to the first ever public performance of ROOTS  on Thursday 2nd May.  

A spokesman for the Tolmen said: “It  is a great honour for the Tolmen to welcome such a wonderfully creative company  to our small village theatre, and especially lucky for our audience to be in at the beginning of 1927’s new show.  

"1927 only produce a show every three years or so, and so this will be eagerly awaited by the theatre world.  We are truly fortunate to have its first showing at The Tolmen Centre om May 2."
