Cutty Sark Theatre

The tangled net of trawler fishing

When you don’t live by the sea, it’s easy to think that the issues faced by fishermen don’t affect you.

To see the bigger picture, we caught up with Smoking Apples Theatre, whose new show 'In Our Hands' explores life from the perspective of a Cornish trawlerman as he struggles with crippling legislation, quota distribution and big corporations which leave him with rising debts. Their award-winning performance, coming soon to the Cutty Sark Theatre, shows us how the fisherman's story affects us all.

Cutty Sark Theatre

The Michael Edwards Studio Theatre is Cutty Sark's unique performing arts space, located in the ship's lower hold where precious tea and wool cargoes were stacked over a century ago. In the evening, the central section can be converted into a remarkable theatre, the only one of its kind in the world. Our changing programme of events includes cabaret, comedy, one-man shows, lectures, musical performances and small-scale drama.
