"Minack" in Cornish means a rocky place and the black headed crag below the theatre has always drawn local fishermen. Until the 1930’s they had the gorse filled gully to themselves and the cliffs echoed to the cries of gulls not actors. From 1931 until she died in 1983 the Minack Theatre was planned, built and financed by one determined woman - Rowena Cade.
