Part of Rogue’s spellbinding summer double-bill
Firebird is a stirring, spellbinding, heart pounding, majestic and riotous feast for the senses combining vivid imagery, wild theatre that takes place all around you, incredible live music , breath taking dance, immersive battles, supernatural visions and a beautiful tale.
Following the fearless footsteps of Rogue’s King Arthur,Firebirdis an immersive theatre adventure into the spell-casting shadows of Tehidy Woods North Cliffs.
Follow the flames to a fantastical bewitchment, a blazing show in the heart of the wild.
Firebird tells a tale of astonishing and dreadful beauty, about fire, about forgotten magic, revenge and the consuming flames of desire.
This is a tale of a Celtic Warrior Queen, a new world with new kings, the unrestrainable force of savage love and the cost of stealing from the old gods.
Written by Ollie Oakenshield and Directed by Angelina Boscarelli – Firebird is designed for brave hearts and wild imaginations.
The show is performed in two halves with an interval half way.
All are welcome, from near or far!
Follow the smoke to the wild heart of Cornwall and find the bright and enthralling flames of Rogue’s Wild Theatre.
The experience –
Reasonably priced hot refreshments, cold drinks, beer, wine and cider (and Rogue’s epic Woodland Vegetable Stew) will be available to buy.
Toilets are situated near the performance area.
For your woodland adventure we recommend you bring a blanket, a warm and waterproof coat, shoes for adventure (wellies if it has been raining) and a torch.
There will be hay bales to sit on (and a few chairs for those who need), though feel free to bring cushions or fold out chairs (if you don’t mind carrying them).
The event lasts about 2 ½ hours and takes place in the woodland so come prepared whatever the weather. (We will use our fabulous canopy to cover the audience if it should rain)!
Firebird is the twilight offering of Rogue Theatre’s spellbinding summer double-bill and emerges as the embers of the day fade beyond the North Cliffs giving way to the tide of magic shadows. Firebird starts each day at 7.30pm
(Wild is the sunlight offering and takes place each afternoon at 2.30pm).

The Celts believed that trees
Are doorways between worlds
For they exist in this world
And yet their roots reach deep into the otherworld
Beyond the moss and earth and long forgotten buried bones
To a place of magic, where mythological beasts still roam.
We cover the audience with our marvellous canopy in the event of rain, so Firebird is the perfect immersive theatre adventure even on rainy days!
