An hilarious evening from a well loved comedian.
After many years of directing and acting professionally
throughout Germany, Holland and the UK, David Faulkner returned to Cornwall,
his ancestral home, to start a new business, Flicks Hair Design, in Newquay.
In 1989 David was invited to join Lane Theatre where he acted in and directed a number of critically acclaimed productions including 'Whose Life Is It Anyway' and the immensely successful 'Pinocchio', which he also wrote.
With the aim of 'Taking Theatre To The People' OPEN ROAD THEATRE COMPANY was formed in 2004 with David as Artistic Director. Its reputation grew with such diverse plays as 'Educating Rita', 'The Trouble With Ted' and 'Antigone'. ' Lunchtime Concert', which came second in the All England One Act Drama Festival 2007 was its last production. Now, after a break of five years, OPEN ROAD THEATRE COMPANY is on tour again. CHEAT THE REAPER tells the story of those missing five years.

Meet the fascinating people they encounter on their journey and the dedicated professionals who help cancer patients like David CHEAT THE REAPER?

All profits from the CHEAT THE REAPER tour will be donated to cancer charities in the South West.

Recently signed by the 33 Jazz label, the Johanna Graham Quartet comprises the elegant and hugely accomplished guitar phrasing of Martin Bowie, an exciting and vital drumming talent in Damian Rodd, brilliant and sensitive double bass from Tim Greenhalgh and Johanna herself on vocals. The journey began in 2005 when Johanna discovered Martin as he was completing his jazz degree and the pair began to work together as a duo.
The band are extremely popular in Cornwall having entertained audiences in the south west for many years, and with the release of their new album, they have been venturing further afield. Johanna's captivating stage presence and emotive style puts a fresh spin on jazz standards, with original compositions and modern classics arranged in her own unique way, and together the group produce a passionate and exciting sound. The quartet won the ‘This Is Cornwall Best Jazz Act’ in 2012, and were nominated for Best Jazz Act in the South West Music Awards.
Froggie, as he is known to his many fans, was born in
Birmingham in 1941. He spent his teens singing in local pubs and clubs.
During this time he spent hours writing songs and poetry. Before long
Froggie put together a band of talented musicians called The Monopoly.
He was signed up by some of the top recording companies of the time –
Polydor, Bell. His writing talents were also being recognised and he was
signed by major publishing houses. This was a great achievement for Froggie
and his songs were being recorded by established stars both in this country
and abroad – Cliff Richard and The Dave Clark Five among them.
His concerts are sold out across the country and abroad, and Froggie followers arrive at the shows clutching their toy frogs and waving green scarves – certainly a sight to behold.
Froggie writes and sings his own songs, mesmerising his audience, making them laugh with one of his many stories or cry with emotion with a song that touches the heart. An evening with Raymond Froggatt is pure magic, an evening not to be missed.
Froggie and his band are supported this evening by Eagle Country – a local duo who have recently been awarded the Top South West Country Act and who have had to pleasure of working with Froggie several times before.
This should be a great musical evening.
