What if Postman Pat was a young, disgruntled woman growing up in Cornwall?
Meet Postman Kat, Tuesday 16 August at 9.30pm at Canal Cafe Theatre, is an interactive comedy in all things Cornish. Forget Poldark, let Postman Kat show you the real Cornwall.
Tamsin Kelly explained: “Growing up in Cornwall can be challenging at the best of times. And then Ken the postman dies and your expected to take over his job?
“So great. Now you’re the local postie. This is not what you wanted. You thought you would at least be a model or a radio presenter, but turns out your options are either pasties, or posties.
“Fine. Well you never know, it might bring you closer to the community, you could become a local celebrity… Looks like you’ll never be as good as Ken though. Whatever Grandma. Sod this.”
She said: “I moved from a big council estate in Cornwall to come to London and go to drama school. My parents were homeless when I was born and I always dreamed of being a Blue Peter presenter.
“I moved to London when I was 18 and finished drama school at 21. Since then I have toured with various musicals, been in News Revue, starred in a online comedy series called Shambles, worked with Comedian’s Cinema Club (who were nominated for a Chortle award), and have recenty joined the Soho Theatre’s Young Company.”
Tamsyn has worked with comedians Matt Crosby, Luke McQueen, Harry Deansway, Adam Larter, Will Seaward, Eric Lampaert and Joz Norris.
After playing Margaret Thatcher at The Minack last summer in Magbeth, Tamsyn was looking for the ultimate challenge. And if she can’t get home to Cornwall, she’s going to bring Cornwall to the Camden Fringe.
