WHAT'S ON:

A rollicking tale of laminators, prescriptions and sausage-theft, set in a small rural town…

LAMINATED is a comedy drama about a couple trying to revive their lamentable sex-life, while being parent carers to a learning disabled daughter…and her pissed-off sister. It’s also about the strength of rural communities and loyalty in austerity times. Age 12+

“A whole heap of giggly fun” ****

THE PRSD

“Inspired by her own life and conversations with special needs families, Lucy Bell’s Laminated explores the impact of having a high-needs child on a marriage in this warm and funny conversational one-woman show.” THE STAGE

Following the great success of A Dickensian Christmas, Ha-Hum-Ah Theatre are teaming up again with intoBodmin to add their theatrical twist to the world of festive theatre!  

They’re the best of sisters onstage but the worst of friends off it. It’s the final performance of Cinderella in a moth-eaten, regional theatre and backstage tensions threaten to boil over onstage. Will the egotism, one-up-manship and politics remain confined to the dressing room? Will the ugly sisters keep the professional professional and the personal personal? Will we ever find out what happened during Babes In The Wood?

 

Oh No It Isn't! is a hilariously funny and beautifully moving new play exploring the highs and lows of life in the theatre. Written by Great British Pantomime Award nominee Luke Adamson and using real anecdotes and stories, it is an impassioned yet tender love letter to the world of performance.

The Old Library is opening its doors on Christmas Day for a very special event. Anyone, and absolutely everyone, is invited to come together and be merry, enjoy food and drink - all free of charge at this festive Feast of Bodmin event.

 

intoBodmin’s Feast of Bodmin events are designed to bring people together, to experience new things and share cultural experiences in various and different ways.

 

We know there are people who might not get to celebrate with loved ones, or those who won’t be able to afford to celebrate Christmas in a special way this year, or there might be people who just want to drop in and spread some cheer. This event really is for everyone in the community, no matter what their circumstances, race, or religion – we want to bring people together to celebrate our community with food and drink on the 25th December.

The doors will be open between 10am and 3pm on Christmas day, and anyone is welcome to drop in or stay for as long as they like.
