ALL OF ME

(the possibility of future splendour)

By Caroline Horton

Directed by Alex Swift and produced by China Plate

Every now and then a piece of theatre crosses our path which is as deeply affecting emotionally as it is magnificent theatrically. Such a piece is ALL OF ME by Caroline Horton.

Derived from her own experiences – almost autobiographical – and full of dark themes of clinical depression – it is also uplifting, and indeed comical in parts.

Caroline Horton is a theatre maker and performer who we have followed since her first show (Olivier Award nominated) ‘You’re Not Like Other Girls Chrissy’ which came to the Tolmen Centre several years ago. She is a truly mesmerising performer, often using her own life experiences as a building block for her theatre.

All Of Me is a dark and difficult play about the depths of depression. Caroline takes us into her own mythical psyche – apologising repeatedly as she does so! – as we are exposed to the inner turmoil of a tortured soul, grappling with suicidal thoughts. While this may sound bleak, Caroline has made a magnificently powerful theatrical experience that is actually, ultimately, optimistic.

★★★★★The Independent

“All of Me is theatrically alive at every moment, even when conveying the deadening weight of depression. And yes, actually, it is ultimately uplifting – but by being raw, honest and elemental, rather than neat or cutesy. I loved it.”

★★★★The Guardian ★★★★Time Out ★★★★The Stage  ★★★★Time Out ★★★★ The Scotsman ★★★★The List ★★★★★ Three Weeks ★★★★The Wee Review ★★★★Edinburgh Guide ★★★★one4review ★★★★Theatre Weekly

Mental illness has been brought to the stage in many and varied forms – it is an important and significant subject in today’s world, worthy of examination by all of us.

All of Me gives us that opportunity in a play that is both personal and universal, and which evokes the reality of depression on stage in front of us, through a performance which is powerful and engaging, a genuine theatrical tour-de-force.

All the components of fine theatre are brought together by Caroline and her Director Alex Swift: a dishevelled and mysterious stage set, beautifully arranged music and sound, brilliant writing, and a charismatic performance by a mesmerising performer.

All Of Me was tremendously well received at The Edinburgh Fringe 2019 – just look at the stars, reviews and audience feedback. We were lucky enough to see it at Warwick Arts Centre in January this year, and to then find a space in our programme to schedule it.

We had some worries about a subject matter so dark and so personal. But we decided that our Tolmen Centre audience, who have over the years relished theatre which is challenging, as long as it is of excellent quality, would be glad of the chance to see All Of Me – which is both of those things. We unreservedly recommend this play, deep and dark, but undeniably wonderful theatre.

DRIP DRIP DRIP

By Pipeline Theatre

Following their introductory tour early last year, DRIP DRIP DRIP has been recast and rewritten for its new nationwide tour in 2020.

We are fortunate to have the only performance in Cornwall on this tour, as the company journeys across the country, ending with a long run at the Pleasance Theatre in London.

In its new form and with a new cast, the play retains it’s powerful examination of racism and political extremism, in the context of our beloved NHS in 2020.

As with all Pipeline’s work, and with Jon Welch’s writing, this is a play that merits seeing for a second time, especially as it has evolved in keeping with the changing circumstances facing the country and the NHS.

And if you missed it last time, grab the only chance to see it at The Tolmen Centre, Pipeline’s  home venue –  from where all their work has originated.


THE STORY: Bed 6, Oncology ward, a local NHS hospital.

Behind the blue curtain – Daniel, a refugee from Eritrea, now training to be a nurse; Rahmiya, a second-generation Muslim doctor; and David, elderly white cancer patient and discredited academic, fretting about his cat, Roger.

Over time, carers and cared-for become an unlikely, dysfunctional family.

But as life ebbs, reality splinters. Glimpsed in the cracks: the Nazi euthanasia programme, a burns clinic in Africa, a cross-Channel human shipment. And drip by drip David’s far-right ideology seeps out, as he prepares his final incendiary lecture (assuming he lives long enough to give it).

Bonds break, and suddenly both Daniel and Rahmiya’s right to call the UK home seems to hang on a dead man’s lips.

Pipeline Theatre, known for indelible characters and immersive design, takes you into the dark corners with unexpected humour and poignancy, busting taboos while offering its love-letter to the NHS.

Below are a few sample reviews from the 2019 tour:

‘Pipeline Theatre might be a tiny company from deepest Cornwall, but its work is creating theatre for the enquiring mind. What they have exposed in this production is profoundly alarming and deserves a much wider audience.’
British Theatre Guide

‘This is an astounding piece of studio theatre, Pipeline is a company deserving of greater recognition.’ 
number9reviews

“This piece made me laugh, brought a tear to my eye and flung me into worlds I’d never taken the time to venture into before. Perhaps most importantly, it left a lasting, powerful impression and a little hope that we might move past this time of division. In a time where nationalism is the newest superbug, this couldn’t come sooner.”

THE ASSEMBLY OF ANIMALS BY TIM SPOONER

THE ASSEMBLY OF ANIMALS comes to the Tolmen Centre for two performances. Part installation, part sculpture, and part puppetry performance, this is an exciting addition to our spring programme as part of the  “Festival of Curious Puppetry”. The show, which is suitable for all ages from 3 upwards, lasts about  half an hour, followed by an opportunity for  audience members to  explore the objects used and see how they function.

The Assembly of Animals has been performed widely across the UK and Europe to audiences of all ages and has been part of the British Council Showcase, which takes standout shows from the Edinburgh Fringe to wider audiences.

Tim Spooner is a visual artist and performance maker.   Exemplifying the low-tech, handmade yet magical quality of Spooner’s work, The Assembly of Animals is a series of demonstrated experiments, where the performers assemble, reorganise and animate an array of ingeniously constructed ‘animals’ of very different sizes and forms. Magnets, motors, inflating objects, travelling glowing liquid and other mechanisms give this complex installation a movement and life of its own.

Think of it as a series of ‘performed sculptures’ which fuse scientific experimentation together with puppetry. Creating vibrating compositions of living and inanimate matter through a combination of sound, electricity and often mundane everyday materials.

Tim Spooner’s idiosyncratic and unique performances attempt to expand our understanding of the physical world by revealing the inner life of objects.  Spooner’s work – usually non-verbal but full of vibrant sound – appeals to all ages.

After the performance, the audience is invited to explore the objects more closely and to discover the ways they function.

“Tim is an artistic inventor and creates this carefully constructed world, the delicacy of which requires consistent marvelling and leaves children entertained throughout”   (Theatre Bristol Writers)

“Absolutely fascinating, undeniably bonkers” (Children’s Theatre Reviews)

NOTE: This show is quite abstract in form, and is a long way from being a conventional puppet show. Expect to be surprised…. and inspired!

Performances at 2pm and 5pm

The Remains of Logan Dankworth

by Luke Wright

I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didn’t end, did it?

Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is determined to be in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. Meanwhile, Logan’s wife Megan wants to leave London to better raise their daughter. As tensions rise at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever.

The third of Fringe First and Stage Award Winner Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust and privilege in the age of Brexit.

“Luke Wright’s performances rumble with rage, passion and humour. They are also peppered with brilliantly smart observations. You will leave his show brimming with energy, heart pounding and brain whirring.” The Guardian

1927 Theatre – Roots

A preview showing.

We need to know who we were, so we can imagine who we might be.

Acclaimed theatre company 1927 (Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets) has unearthed a series of rarely told folktales that offer a glimpse into imaginations from a pre-industrialized age. Tyrannical ogres, magical birds, and very, very fat cats are brought to life with the company’s signature fusion of handcrafted animation and storytelling, with a live score. We are incredibly lucky to have this preview showing of their newest work before it premieres in America.

Please note that this is a first public showing of Roots, and as such has an element of ‘Work In Progress’ to it – it is a staging post towards its opening in America later in May. It won’t be quite the finished product , and there may be some rough edges – that’s inevitable in the process of bringing a complex stage work to completion. But we are delighted to ask our audience to share in this process, and get to see this new work so early in its evolution.

Juliet and Romeo

Lost Dog

Following his tour de force, Paradise Lost, Ben Duke’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. They didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after.

Well they lived at least. Now 40ish, at least one of them in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love.

“Pure pleasure. Smart, subversive and sexy.”……..The Guardian “Squirmingly funny and no less heartbreaking.”…The Times “Glorious. Full of warmth and intimacy.”…..The Independent

Taken from David Lane’s review:

“I had the joy of seeing this last night at Déda in Derby. I’m so glad I did, as it’s wonderful!”

“This is really a piece of theatre inter-laced with dance. There’s lots of dialogue, much of which is very funny – the audience was laughing out loud at times. At others times it’s incredibly sad. The beauty of the show is the tenderness and connection between the 2 characters, and the parallels and contrasts with Shakespeare’s star cross’d lovers. You’ll find yourself thinking about your own relationships too. The show definitely respects the original story while embracing some of its silliness – there’s honesty and authenticity in this performance. The choice of music is so apposite. It’s music with baggage, which will trigger memories in the audience, and it underpins the dance beautifully. Juliet & Romeo should appeal to a wide audience spectrum: theatre lovers, Shakespeare buffs, dance enthusiasts, and to anyone who has ever loved!”

“I asked some of the audience for their reactions to Juliet & Romeo last night. Those who helped me were overwhelmingly positive – here are some quotes:”

  • “The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen”
  • “Equally funny, and beautiful, and moving, and touching – I cried lots at the end”.
  • “It’s absolutely blown me way – it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen!”
  • “Everyone’s heard of Romeo & Juliet, but this is a great concept – a really,really clever idea delivered beyond my wildest expectations.
  • “This is an amazing blend of the very small ups and downs of a domestic relationship, mixed with the history of Romeo & Juliet, and then some beautiful dance which tells a very powerful story”.
  • “I definitely want to see this again” (several people said that)

Translunar Paradise

Theatre Ad Infinitum wordless tale of life, death and enduring love returns to tour the UK and Chile following years of extensive international touring amassing nine awards.

Original performers George Mann and Deborah Pugh are joined by Sophie Crawford to retell, with precise gesture and touches of humour, the story of widower William who escapes to a comforting world of fantasy and memories rather than confront his grief. From beyond the grave, his wife Rose returns to help him let go. This poignant, life-affirming tale uses intricate and lifelike hand-held masks ‚ created by Madame Tussaud senior sculptor Victoria Beaton ‚ to travel back and forth through William and Rose relationship, wordlessly conveying a lifetime of memories in 75 minutes.

How it all started‚

Theatre Ad Infinitum premiered Translunar Paradise at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and experienced an overwhelming response from audiences and professionals alike receiving three awards and three award nominations, selling out our run at The Pleasance Dome, and picking up four & five star reviews across the board.

Following this success the show went on to win a total of nine awards internationally and has toured extensively in the UK in Sept-Oct 2011, Jan-Feb 2012, and Oct-Nov 2013. They were thrilled to sell out a week long run at the 2012 London International Mime Festival at Barbican, a week at the Bristol Old Vic and many nights in venues across the UK (including at The Tolmen Centre).

The piece returned to the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 and sold out for a second consecutive year.

Translunar has also enjoyed extensive international touring in Bogota at the Ibero-American Theatre Festival, Colombia and going on to tour in Brazil for three months with Galharufas Producoes, in Italy, Norway, Israel, Greece, Croatia, Ireland, Sweden, The Netherlands, Belgium and the USA.
