Please ignore the tourist in the bottom left showing utter disregard for my dying scene.

Photos taken at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall.

This extraordinary theater was carved into a rocky seaside cliff almost single-handedly by Rowena Cade. Dragging shipwreck timbers up from the beach for building materials and converting a World War II gun post into a ticket booth she worked on her project on a piece of Cornish coastline bought for £100 in the 1920’s until she was well into her 80’s. It is still the venue for Shakespearean plays today. As you can see.
