In 2009, the large-scale, open-space community play Gonamena  , written by Simon Parker, took place at Sterts Theatre on Bodmin Moor. Commissioned by the Caradon Hill Area Heritage Project to coincide with the Phoenix 100 celebrations, Gonamena told the story of one family’s fate during the copper mining boom and bust era in Cornwall in the mid to late 19th century. The play was directed by Simon Harvey, and the score was composed by Simon Dobson. I was commissioned by The Works: Theatre & Dance Cornwall to write the evaluation report for the play following interviews with the cast and an audience survey.
