Canvas & Rum North South Theatre Set in the 1800’s Canvas & Rum is a maritime theatre piece centred on the packet ships that sailed from Falmouth, and the life of an old shell backer who left his home in Kernow after a family dispute. This old sea dog takes on the duty of teaching a new shipmate the ropes on board the ship, but bad luck strikes and the vessel is forced to return to the home that had been avoided for decades. Inspired by tales such as ‘Moby Dick’ and ‘Heart of the Sea’, but based on the historical figures and events in Falmouth, Canvas & Rum is a maelstrom of Shanties, sirens, superstitions and sea sick sailors. Following the success of ‘Pals’, North South Theatre brings you a brand new tale from Cornish history.
