Miracle Theatre has gone into production of a feature film based on its recent sell-out show Tin,commissioned by the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Using an imaginative combination of digital technology and hand-made models, the Redruth-based company has now commenced production of a micro-budget feature film of this story of love and money, opera and tin mining.
The film will feature the original cast of the theatre production, which includes opera icon Ben Luxon. They will be joined by other actors, including Jenny Agutter (The Railway Children, Call the Midwife, Outside Bet) and Dudley Sutton (Lovejoy, Weekend Retreat) who will play Abraham Bennett, one of the devious bankers.
Jenny Agutter said of the project “I loved the production of Tin, which I saw at the Count House Botallack in a domed tent on the coast. This was an extraordinary and appropriate setting for the play, surrounded by ruined tin mines, one could easily imagine this fantastic tale taking place. The theatrical production was magical and I look forward to seeing these great characters transferring to screen. I am very pleased to be joining the Miracle Theatre Company on this venture.”
