The Story Republic

Our glamorous performers will be out and about regaling audiences with stories, poems and songs at various Cornish festivals and events this year.

We are sorry to announce that The Story Republic will no longer be performing any planned events for Summer 2020, this is to protect our community and staff from Covid-19. They will be returning Summer 2021. In the meantime, look out for potential pop-up performances of poetry and song to brighten spirits in coming months.

Our team are made up of emerging and more experienced performers with various backgrounds in theatre and performance. They cut quite a dash in the street dressed in their Sunday best, brandishing suitcases and performing poems on the spot. You can watch our short film,  find out more about our team and click here to find out what we are up to. You can buy our CD or download individual tracks you would like from itunes and Amazon.

Their repertoire includes many Charles Causley poems such as ‘Figgie Hobbin’, where a grumpy King pushes away all delicacies in favour of his prized Cornish pudding; and ‘My Young Man’s a Cornishman’, where our ladies fight over a rather self satisfied young man. They will also rouse you with sea shanties, and lull you with stories. The Story Republic are directed by Annamaria Murphy, our Artistic Director, and Nix Rosewarne, Guest Director.

The Story Republic make an excellent addition to any festival or event, find out how to book them here!
