My performance of The Secret Listener will be performed in Bodmin this Saturday October 12th. The Regimental Museum is a perfect venue for a matinee, obviously they have many WW2 artefacts on display, but they also have a spy HQ where you can learn about code breaking and have a go at Morse Code. They are happy for the audience to explore the museum as part of their visit. The show starts at 2pm in the Officer’s Mess so there will be plenty of time to extend your time into the museum itself. Otherwise you can come along to the Old Library in Bodmin at 7.30pm. Autumn is well and truly here and what better way to spend an autumnal evening inside a cosy theatre space listening to stories, you can’t get more traditional then that.
Inspired by Olive Myler’s story in Jews in North Devon During WW2 by Helen Fry

My first solo show is making a trip to Cornwall, to Bodmin to be precise. Last year I played Millicent Fawcett in Dreadnought South West’s production of The Cause and we opened the tour in Bodmin. The Old Library there has been turned into an arts centre by that south west creative entrepreneur Fin Irwin and his CIC company, intoBodmin and in a few weeks I am going to perform Coffee with Vera there. Why? Because the space is perfect – the auditorium has both a performance area and a cafe and as Vera is a show in the form of a coffee morning, it fits perfectly.
I shall be getting out and dusting off my Grandma Doralee Patinkin’s Holiday Cookbook [mother of Mandy Patinkin] for my cake recipes and taking along a selection of brownies and blondies, I mean what’s not to like there. Past audience members have been known to order the book straight after the performance!!!
