Pirates of Trebah

Pirates of Trebah
written and directed by David Ivall
Performed at Trebah Amphitheatre
Gweek Players are proud to be the first local amateur theatre company invited to perform at Trebah Amphitheatre. We then invited our talented member, actor and playwright David Ivall to write a play that would suit the location and for a ‘family’ audience. The play was a perfect marrying of adventure and fun about two children who become entangled with a group of pirates who’ve lost their ship on the Helford.
The play was tremendous fun to perform and saw the joining of our three youngest members who we hope to work with again soon in the not too distant future. The play also demanded lots of period costumes and some of our more intricate set features and props but the whole team pulled together to make this on location play a great success under David’s direction.

 

The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson

Directed by Angela Wetherill

14–17 March at Gweek Village Hall

It’s curious how three sisters who grew up under the same roof could hold such varied memories of their own childhoods. This is a poignant yet very funny play about sibling rivalry and relationships as three self-estranged sisters reunite on the eve of their mother’s funeral. Stories clash and secrets are revealed. How could they have grown so far apart? Their mother would wonder where it all went wrong?
