National Minority is a new play by Alan M Kent, Cornish poet, novelist and dramatist. The play is set in the library of a fictional National Trust property, Rosenanan, and deals with the search for a group of extant papers/ manuscripts called The Sherwood Sermons.
The Sherwood Sermons written by Joseph Sherwood in 1680 remain a fascinating literary holy grail for scholars of the Cornish language. There have been rumours of their sighting over the centuries but they still remain undiscovered. Alan M. Kent’s new play National Minority incorporates this narrative in a literary detective story that takes audiences to a new discovery of identity and change. The play is intimate and thought provoking, and appeals to a wide variety of people interested in high quality theatre, the Cornish language, culture and identity.
The play is brought to the stage by Gwary Tek (Fair Play) Productions and is directed by Jason Squibb from Collective Arts Ltd (and Reverend Odgers in the BBC’s Poldark).
