Cornish playwright Carl Grose's The Kneebone Bonanza on Radio 4
THE LATEST work by internationally acclaimed Cornish writer Carl Grose is aired on Radio 4 next week.
The Kneebone Bonanza tells of a squabbling, financially ruined family trying to survive in St Day.Their father, Jed Kneebone (scrap yard merchant and country and western addict) has died, leaving his three children (Slick, Dwight and Maddy) in serious debt.
Maddy reluctantly runs the yard, Slick tries to find work (there isn't any) and Dwight does dodgy deals. The bailiffs are on their way and the house is showing signs of serious subsidence. Everything changes, however, when they discover an old family legacy (that of a lost gold mine in Arizona) that could hold the answers to their prayers.
The show can be heard on Monday, March 25 to Friday, March 29, at 10.45am repeated at 7.45pm on Radio 4.

Radio 4 listeners first heard these characters in The Kneebone Cadillac, an afternoon drama broadcast in 2011. This series is set a year later and the family fortunes have not improved. Some of the family also appeared in the popular o-region play Superstition Mountain, which toured Cornwall and the UK.
The cast of The Kneebone Bonanza includes Ed Gaughan (Bafta-nominated film Skeletons), Alex Tregear (Maddy) and Michael Shelford (Slick). Amanda Lawrence (National Theatre, Young Vic, Kneehigh) and Carl Grose himself also appear.
Carl co-wrote award-winning Tristan And Iseult for Kneehigh/National Theatre, Cymbeline for Kneehigh/RSC and Hansel & Gretel for Kneehigh/Bristol Old Vic.
His play 49 Donkeys Hanged for Radio 3's Wire slot was one of the standout listens of 2009; stylistically bold and darkly humorous. His stage play Gargantua for the BT Connections was at the National Theatre in July 2011. 'orse Piss For Blood was at Plymouth Theatre Royal in 2012 and Alaska is touring in Cornwall right now. Carl is currently working on a new show for the Bristol Old Vic.
