In the final hours of April 2004, Tristan Sturrock, Kneehigh's leading man from Brief Encounter, joined the May Day festivities in Cornwall to celebrate the coming of spring. A buoyant father-to-be, his life changed in a moment that night... Instantly engaging, when Tristan walks on stage, his lyrical presence defies his assertion that this story is both his and true. However, Mayday Mayday is "life affirming theatre at its very very best…" (The Cornishman). Tristan takes us through his solo tale of recovery with great wit, a few props and grand operatic flourishes. Mayday Mayday is a love letter to Tristan's life and the people who saved it.
