presented by Scary Little Girls

This autumn, much-loved Cornish entertainers Scary Little Girls will be performing this all-singing, all-dancing, thigh-slappingly funny show based on a classic Cornish tale, back by popular demand after its previous sold out run!

Prepare to be transported to a colourful Penzance from days of yore with Duffy and her friends! This show by award-winning SLG (Queenagers, the Mayven Festival) is based on the Cornish version of Rumpelstiltskin and features a dazzling cast of local and national talent including Johanne Murdock (His Dark Materials, Emmerdale) and Kate Rawson (Hall for Cornwall, Radio 4). Celebrate Penwith folk law with Joan the Wad, witch Maggie Figgie (and her piggy!) and of course working-class hero Duffy - can she and her pals triumph over the very Devil? 

Cornish cheer, fun for the whole family, an original score by Cornish composer and fan favourite TJ Holmes (Hall for Cornwall, Kneehigh) and stunning design and puppets by Jude Munden (Miracle, English Touring Opera) combine in this hilarious production in the perfect setting of the magical Minack Theatre.
