Event Description

The Plasticine Men present Keepers:


Based on a fascinating story of human endurance and friendship, and the events of one fateful night some 200 years ago that would go down in maritime legend, changing the way lighthouses were run forever.

Using original live music and little more than a ladder and a trapdoor, The Plasticine Men conjure up the confines of the infamous Smalls Lighthouse and the stormy companionship of its two keepers.

Based on an extraordinary true story, an enchanting tale of sudden loss of life and drawn out loss of sanity unfolds between the flashes of the lamp that the pair must tend each and every night.

The Plasticine Men are an award winning collective of theatresmiths, scouring the land for stories that beg to be told onstage. They challenge themselves to simply create the extraordinary worlds that lurk on the edge of hearsay and history.
