About the Author

Nick Darke was born and raised in St Eval, Cornwall, the son of a farmer. He trained as an actor and worked at the Victoria Theatre, Stoke, throughout the 1970s. His first play, Never Say Rabbit in a Boat, about a group of Cornish farmers who invest in a fishing net, was performed at the Victoria Theatre in 1978, directed by Peter Cheeseman. He went on to write 27 plays in 28 years, all of which were produced by, amongst others, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal National Theatre, Royal Court, BBC radio and television. His work is translated and performed regularly throughout the world. He lived in the parish of his birth where he worked as a lobster fisherman and beachcomber. He won the George Devine award in 1979 and was a Bard of the Gorseth Kernow. Nick died in 2005, aged 56.
