Project info:

Touring this Autumn, The Coastguard’s Daughter by Olivia Lowry, is presented to you by Canvas Theatre and is a critically acclaimed, poetic and playful piece of original, lyrical theatre and storytelling, interwoven with live shanty singing and hymns of the sea. Set in 1915 and based upon the true and almost lost and forgotten Cornish tale, this unique production celebrates and laments what it is to live by the laws of the sea. Working with different singing communities across Cornwall, each show will have a new and unique identity true to the creation of the people involved.

Canvas is a professional theatre company dedicated to creating high quality, innovative projects that aims to connect and inspire people in Cornwall and beyond.
