Janice Law at The Minack Theatre

Janice Law is pictured listening to guide, actor Mark Harandon, at the outdoor Minack Outdoor Theatre in Cornwall.

The Minack Outdoor Theatre, in Cornwall in southwestern Britain, with its steep cliffs and monstrous Atlantic waves as a backdrop, is as dramatic as the plays and concerts presented there.

Begun in about 1930, the Minack was built mostly with hand tools and terraced into solid granite by local patron and founder Rowena Cade (1893-1983), assisted by her gardener Billy Rawlings, who worked with her from the 1930s to the 1960s.
