"Burton" is a one man show touring (!) in Penwith for two nights only on Carn to Cove. Rhodri Miles's potrayal of Richard Burton in his own words takes us on the journey from the the Welsh valleys to Hollywood Mega-Stardom. Beautiful women, alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant one-man show, which explores Burton's detriorating health and mental state, his doomed relationship with Liz Taylor and his constant guilt over the abandonment of his family.
"Fantastic, the whole audience was in the palm of his hand from beginning to end" Edinburgh "The Guide" 5 Stars

Tim Smithies of Carn to Cove said "we saw a piece of this show in Newport, Gwent at the National Rural Touring Forum showcase in 2011 and loved it, its taken a while to get it down to Cornwall on Carn to Cove but I reckon it will be worth the wait".
