Hell Fire Corner
It's about an illiterate Redruth miner who, a century ago, became a god to the Cornish as he was the monarch of rugby centre three-quarters. He played only once for England, because he turned down further invitations, feeling socially inept. I go deeply into my roots in this play --which The Stage reviewer described flatteringlyas 'this mighty play'. It moved people anyway, even if it's a bit 'oldfashioned; in theatrical terms.
It's high time it was produced again!
It is now (2010) published in 'Four Modern Cornish Plays', Selected by Alan Kent (Francis Boutle).
