The Cameraman

Category: Show Related artist: Bash Street Theatre

Set around the seedy French Cafe du Pont, this is a playful homage to the film-noir genre. There’s a voice-over narration and live musical accompaniment,including piano, accordion and some funky steel guitar.
There are songs, excitement and silent comedy as the storyline follows the fortunes of an inept cameraman who inadvertently becomes involved in the theft of the World’s Largest Diamond.
The story is narrated by a jaded detective looking back on his early career as a young crime-fighter in the ‘Roaring 20s’ – the days of fake news, a world pandemic and global warming.
With influences as diverse as Tintin, Roger Rabbit, Humphrey Bogart and Buster Keaton, The Cameraman offers a comic view on the classic cinema detective movies with a touch of nostalgia for our analogue past.
It’s an hour-long show, with a cast of four, and is suitable for all ages.
