The ‘Wild Spring Hare 2017’ Rogue Theatre at Tehidy Woods performance!

The Rogue Theatre at Tehidy Woods hosted the ‘Wild Spring Hare’ performance for the Easter holidays.

We wondered along to see the afternoon show last Wednesday. The performances were set out in five different miniature stages with only 15-20 minutes per show, which suited my little cousins short attention span.

The Performance

We moved between the first four stages all of which told a different story and moral. It was set out like an ‘Easter egg hunt’, whereby one followed ‘the hare’ to each place. The aim was to collect four clues and then to use them to unlock the pathway to the final stage under a larger marquee with a small tuck-shop like usual. The end point was the location of the chocolate Easter eggs, all of which were free for each visitor.

I found all the stories fairly thought provoking:

The first focused on the value of gold as insignificant in relation to human-social relationships.

The second was structured around a parallel world full of dragons following the end of ‘Earth’, the moral was that the young boy with a large imagination had a secret that could alter the fate of the world.

The third was a tale about two Magpies, who were, as the song goes, two for joy or a pair for life. However, after one passes the single bird was looked at as one for sorrow. They proposed that instead the rhyme be changed to, one for hope.

The fourth explored a sister-bond where they broke free from slavery (and patriarchy) to show the world who was boss; the theme was that they harnessed the magic to change.

The four clues: 1) Gold, 2) ability to alter fate, 3) hope, 4) magic to change, were then used to be allowed access to the pathway through the woods to the fifth and final show about ‘the hare’ himself who at the end gave out chocolate eggs to all of the audience.

I think you all should go…

I honestly love the Rogue Theatre at Tehidy Woods. I’ve now been to the summer, autumn, winter and spring events! There is something very Cornish about meandering through the forest, dressed up warm in winter coats and chasing ‘fairies’ (as my cousins call them). It’s like a magical wonderland, and surprisingly I think it’s as enjoyable for adults as it is for children.

The spring performance is now drawing to an end; it is not long until the summer festival begins, so keep an eye out!

At the performance, I took many photos and so I’ll leave you here with a few. Let me know if you decide to visit the Rogue Theatre at Tehidy Woods or if you’ve been before!
