Daniel Drench. West Cornwall's most prolific and unstable storyteller, presents a bewildering and potentially moving interpretation of the classic Cornish folk tale 'The Mermaid of Zennor'.

Drenched is a one man comedy-theatre piece, challenging the form of a traditional solo performance with a combination of storytelling, character comedy and physical theatre.  


6th – 10th Feb 6.20pm

"I was transported to a whole other place by the quality of the storytelling. Danny Frost is a compelling performer and his relationship with the audience is direct and joyous. I found it both funny and moving in equal measure. Above all, it turned out to be a poetic evening. Using the simple device of a Cornish folk tale, he took the audience on a bigger journey that made us examine ourselves and come out of this wonderfully theatrical event feeling absolutely exhilarated.”
Michael Grandage CBE

"Despite the tragic tenor of this tale there’s a healthy dose of humor... my friend was still feeling the laughter cheek-ache the next day... Matty’s conversations with his parents were wordlessly, profoundly moving; Dan Frost's eyes and body language conveying far more than speech ever can... mesmerizingly beautiful... A tender insight into mental illness and fragility, Come with him, Daniel that is, and see it if you can."
