The outdoor Minack Theatre has announced new shows for its upcoming season.

Opening in March will be black comedy Superstition Mountain, written by Carl Grose. Produced in partnership with Ha Hum Ah Theatre, the piece follows three brothers from Cornwall and a family legend of a hidden goldmine out in the wild west.

Founder and former artistic director of Kneehigh, Mike Shepherd, and co-director Elayce Ismail, will present Calvino Nights this season. In association with imPossible Producing, the new piece follows Mr Calvino and his motley troupe of tale-tellers, song-makers and fire-raisers.
