Cornwall’s Very Own “Kneehigh” Theatre company Are Coming To Lost Garden Heligan

Imagine being told to leave your home…
imagine American soldiers occupying your home…
imagine being 12 and angry, with only a cat to tell your secrets to…
Well it all happened (most of it anyway) in Slapton sands, Devon,in 1944.
25 July – 23 August 2015 just to let you guys into a little secret. What a wonderful sight to see the Asylums being put up at http://heligan.com. http://www.kneehigh.co.uk are back to thrill, delight, amaze us with their oh so wonderful story telling. 946 is adapted by michael Morpurgo and Emma Rice from the amazing story of Adolphus Tips, 946 explodes everything we thought we knew about the D-Day landing. With Kneehigh sorcery, 946 uses music,puppetry and foolishness to tell this tale of war, prejudice and love. Tender, political and surprisingly romantic, this story speaks to us all and will finally reveal the secrets the US and British governments tried to keep quiet.
Kneehigh tell stories. Based in Cornwall with a local, national and intenational profile, they create vigorous, popular and challenging theatre performed with a joyful anarchy. Micheal Morpurgo is one of the UK”s most loved and successful authors whose work has moved my son and i on many a nights Bed time story’s and having seen War horse on the stage in London bought me to tears.
