Last Orders at The Bucket of Blood a play by Peter Delaunay adapted from the novella by Charlie Newlands (from his collection Crooked Pathways) with music & lyrics by Martin Bills & additional lyrics by Derekk Ross
A modern ghost story woven around the myths surrounding the Bucket of Blood public house in Hayle: a spooky comedy with a fully integrated musical score.
A contemporary take on Cornish 'ghost story' mythology, the play is a ghost story with a twist. Delving into a dark world in which existence and non-existence rub along uncomfortably together in an eerie but comic tale of odd Cornish goings-on.
The play was originally developed by Escape Theatre, a partnership between Martin Bills, myself, Charlie Newlands & Derekk Ross,
