The Isles of Scilly are a stunning UK destination just 28 miles from Land’s End, perfect for active family holidays in the sun or a long weekend getaway. The arts and cultural calendar is brimming with exciting events, like foodie feasts, music festivals and theatrical productions.
This July, the Miracle Theatre open air theatre company is coming to the Isles of Scilly for a 4-day extravaganza performing their comic production, The Third Policeman.
This summer Miracle ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden in the heart of rural Ireland.
With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O’Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland’s great comic geniuses.
Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected!
