Judas Worm

Judas Worm was written for the Collective by Justin Chubb in 1998. 

It told the story of miner and savant artist Judas who is rocketed to fame when his work is spotted by a London art critic.

Back in Cornwall, a terrible disaster befalls his village. Will Judas use his new found wealth to help those who once rejected him? 

The play toured Cornwall and then ran for three weeks at the Finborough Theatre, London to huge acclaim.


“If you’ve ever questioned the merits of physical theatre, the Cornish Theatre Collective’s spellbinding transformation of a household table and four chairs into a coiling mineshaft should decisively sweep all doubts from your mind”

“An epic piece on a tiny stage…they create miracles”
London Theatre Reviews

“A mercurial, charismatic ensemble”
