Vitality & joy of life are the keynotes to this new translation of the 16th century Cornish language play, Beunans Meriasek. In it, Camborne's noble patron saint, Meriasek, is sent to school, refuses marriage & all worldly considerations, embarking instead on a priestly career of such piety that it ends in a bishopric of immense wealth and grandeur of the kind that he had studiously worked to avoid all his life.

Black masses, slain dragons and the Duke of Cornwall goes to war in two further plays.

Myrna Combellack was Academic Secretary at the Institute of Cornish Studies (Univ of Exeter &... More > Cornwall CC) from 1972 to 1990.< Less
