Following a sell-out tour of Cornwall in 2009, Iron Shoes and Bish Bash Bosh Productions are touring their award-winning production, SURFING TOMMIES nationally from 23 May – 23 July 2011.

Set during, and in the aftermath of the First World War, SURFING TOMMIES tells the story of three Cornish tin miners whose lives are blown apart when they all leave behind the place they know and love for the fields of Flanders and the atrocities of trench warfare. Partly based on real events, SURFING TOMMIES is written by Cornish writer Alan M. Kent and won the ‘Hoyler An Gof’ award for best piece of poetry or drama in 2010. It began a national tour at The Minack Theatre, Penzance on Monday 23 May.
