The Last Voyage of Alfred Wallis by Donald Rawe
A Name Perpetual by Jonathon Plunkett
Where are you gone, Jimmy Trevenna by Simon Turley
Hell-Fire Corner by D. M. Thomas

Alfred Wallis and the artistic community of St Ives, the iconic events of the 1497 Cornish Rebellion; ‘cow tipping’ in Cornwall during the First World War; and D. M. Thomas’s life of the Cornish rugby legend, Bert Solomon – this new anthology, varying in style and subject matter, offers professional and amateur performers and directors, as well as the general reader, an exciting range of plays with a distinctive Cornish flavour.
