Drama Kernewek

Press Release:  A new resource about Cornish medieval drama has been published by MAGA.

Although aimed primarily for use by secondary schools, the resource will also be of interest to people of all ages as it is full of pictures, facts and information about Cornish medieval drama.

Cornwall has a unique theatrical heritage, and the plays that were
written and performed here in the medieval period played an important role in the development of drama in Britain.  Drama Kernewek will take students and readers back over 600 years to experience Cornwall in the Middle Ages and find out about the plays that were performed in towns and villages around the Duchy from the 14th century through to the early 17th century.

Drama Kernewek is available from MAGA for the price of £6.95, contact cornishlanguage@cornwall.gov.uk or 01872 323497.  It’s written both in Cornish (SWF) and in English.
