Miracle Theatre presents The Third Policeman'

Written by Flann O’Brien
Adapted by Bill Scott, Meiert Avis and Robert Bayley.

This summer Cornwall’s Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland.
With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O’Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland’s great comic geniuses.

Flann O’Brien’s scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracle’s delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination.

Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected!

AUDIENCE NOTE: Everyone is welcome at a Miracle show.
There is an age recommendation of 8 years plus. This is a rough guide as there is nothing ‘unsuitable’ in the show - lots of younger children have been enthralled by Miracle’s past productions, people know their child’s preferences!
