Nick Darke Archive (CPA1)
The Nick Darke Archive contains research materials, notebooks and draft manuscripts for these plays, along with promotional material, reviews, photographs and correspondence. Nick’s work for radio, television and film are also well represented, as are his interests in Cornish environment, industry and history and his work with Kneehigh Theatre. The Collection also documents Nick’s interests beyond Cornwall, including his work on the Nicaraguan Civil War, The Slave Trade and with Thames Lightermen.
The Collection offers an outstandingly broad range of uses; not only do these records give a fascinating insight into Nick’s own writing process and the subjects he was passionate about, but it is also invaluable to those seeking inspiration for their own creative work.
Materials from this Collection can be viewed by appointment with us in Archives & Special Collections, Level 0, The Exchange.
Cataloguing of this Collection is currently in progress. For updates please check our online catalogue
