The Bishop & The Diva

Sat 18th May 2019 - Sun 19th May 2019
St. Agnes Community Hall, Isles of Scilly, TR22 0PL
Stamp and Go present the dramatic story of the Bishop Rock combining the fertile imaginations of eighteenth-century journalists with the inspirational writing of Annamaria Murphy; there are stories that are set about the huge towering bulk of the Bishop Rock Lighthouse, from the topmost platform 144ft. above the crashing waves, to the claustrophobic isolation of the keepers' quarters, to the abode of the ghosts swaying with the bladderwrack in the depths below its foundations.
There are stories of the golden voice that set Georgian London alight, and then did the same in the steamy cities of the new Indian Empire.
There are stories and songs of the heroic builders of the light, and of the unbelievable 'Grand Ball' they held amidst the ships' graveyard of the terrible Western Rocks of Scilly.
There is taunting and boasting and haunting and singing.
There's kidnapping and escaping, and loving and dying - and
perhaps, if you listen hard;
A baby crying.
Some of it is really true!
