Percy Pengelly and the Wibble-Wobble: Virtual Percy


Guy Watson, Artistic Director of Cousin Jack’s Theatre Company, shares with us how FEAST Re-Ignition funding helped bring joy to families in lockdown.

This Easter we had planned to open our brand-new Cornish stage-adaptation of, ‘Percy Pengelly and the Wibble-Wobble’ by Cadgwith-based author, Jenny Steele Scolding.

With tickets sold for the performances at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens near Penzance, and schools across Cornwall booked up to create their own version of the show in our circus big-top tent, it was devastating for the whole company when we realised it wouldn’t be possible to go ahead.

Quickly, and with the support of a Re-Ignition Grant from FEAST, we repurposed much of the work we had already put in to making the show and created ‘Percy Pengelly and the VIRTUAL Wibble-Wobble’ – a filmed, audiobook adaptation. Our aim was to share something very Cornish, very family-focused and very silly with children, dads, grans, aunts, mums and uncles wherever they were in the country or indeed the world – we reached Minnesota!

Thanks to FEAST we were able to digitally bring together the whole family to hear (and see) a truly multi-generational Cornish tale.

“THANK YOU! Should have taking our grandson to this when he should have been coming down for Easter. Instead we watched it together, albeit with 260 miles between us! He loved it and so did we. Well done!” Audience Comment
