Kernow King’s ‘Trevithick’ a big hit

All Year 10 students at Mounts Bay were treated to an exclusive performance of Edward Rowe’s (AKA Kernow King’s) biographical comedy ‘Trevithick’ last week. The show, which stars Kernow King and Mary Woodvine, brings the life of Cornish inventor and mining engineer Richard Trevithick to the stage. Trevithick was an engineering pioneer whose development of steam technology led to steam power being used on roads and rails.

Miss Osborne’s Year 10 Drama group were lucky enough to have a workshop with Kernow King before the performance.

Miss Osborne said, “The students were very enthusiastic. In small groups they were given a scene from the play ‘Trevithick’ to interpret and perform. The students recognised the scene they had been given when they watched the performance, and were able to see how well it worked on stage.”

Isaac Thompson said, “It was a brilliant experience because the actors had a great range of accents and characters. It was very funny.”
