‘Man overboard, man overboard! Call control, blow the whistle!’

Love is a complicated business. It gets even more complicated when the person you love doesn’t want to be alive. Tender, funny and defiantly hopeful, The Light House is a real-life story of falling in love and staying in love, even when the lights go out and you’re lost in the dark. It’s a love letter to life. 

Join the emergency response as we dance in the kitchen, sing in the streets and try to turn the lights back on. It gets lonely, muddling through these days and nights. So why don’t we do it together? 

The Light House has been developed with the support of Arts Council England, Red Ladder & Furnace, Leeds Playhouse’s artistic development engine. Created by Ecole Internationale de Theatre Jacques Lecoq trained artist Alys Williams; writer, theatre maker, co-artistic director of Fidget TheatreAndrea Heaton; and produced by Sheffield Theatre’s Associate Artist, Rachael Halliwell
