Seamas Carey – Help! I think I’m a Nationalist

Event Date

A new one man comedy show about identity, second homes, nationalism, xenophobia and bagpipes.

Who am I? Do I belong? Who do I belong to? And who should I vote for?

Cornwall is at a tipping point. House prices soar, the population shifts, tensions rise. Between Facebook spats, country lane stand-offs and rants down the pub, nobody’s really talking, and fewer are listening.

Seamas is confused.

He is desperately trying to understand.

He’s watched a wave of gentrification sweep through his rural home town. There’s nowhere to live, yet everyone else has second homes. He wishes Cornwall was more welcoming and inclusive, yet watches it being drastically changed by “up country” money.

Could closing borders and nationalism be the answer? Where’s the line between pride and power?
What happens when it all goes too far?

Seamas needs help. He needs your help.

Suitable for audiences aged 12+
