Hallucinogenic fun with Miracle

CORNWALL’s much-loved Miracle Theatre is back on the road this spring, with a new show, Hell’s Bells – A Hallucinogenic Whodunnit, touring to six venues in Dorset and Devon, continuing at Exeter Northcott Theatre on Thursday and Friday 21st and 22nd March and ending the run at Dorchester Corn Exchange on Wednesday 27th.

Miracle is best known locally for inventive summer tours, often performing in striking and beautiful outdoor locations such as Maumbury Rings at Dorchester, Kimmeridge Bay or Springhead gardens at Fontmell Magna. This year, for the first time in a decade, the Cornish company is touring a new indoor production, which will be visiting many arts centres, theatres, village halls and community centres reaching every corner of Cornwall and across the South West.

As the body of a lighthouse keeper mysteriously washes ashore, covered in strange markings, Ferelith’s seaside holiday takes an unexpected turn. Taking a break from the tedium of her holiday and unable to resist meddling in the police investigation, she soon finds herself in the middle of a peculiar web of events – but as things grow increasingly unusual, her legendary powers of intuition begin to fail her. Can her bumbling brother, Grubb, who always seems to be one step behind and heading in the wrong direction, rescue her from the brink of disaster?

Miracle Theatre has been delighting audiences across the South West since 1979. This new show, described as “a comic seaside mystery like no other,” romises an enthralling blend of detective thriller drama and Miracle Theatre’s trademark colourful characters, physical antics and clever humour.
