Living With the Lights On
13th - 17th October, 7:30pm
The thing is I’ve got myself into a bit of a mess...
Mark’s an actor.
I keep forgetting my lines. I’ve left my girlfriend and I’m beginning to stink.
Mark was an actor.
And to make matters worse I’ve met the Devil.
Hilarious, touching and utterly bonkers, Living with the Lights On is a gripping story of a life lived at the edge.
Living with the Lights On is a critically acclaimed play written and performed by Mark Lockyer. 30 years ago, Mark was a promising young actor getting juicy roles at the National and the RSC. Then, one summer in Stratford, his world fell apart.
During a performance of Romeo and Juliet, Mark – playing the mercurial Mercutio – had a breakdown.
This is a play about surviving and living with bi-polar disorder. We go on a moving – and often absurdly hilarious - journey with Mark through relationship breakdown, encounters with the justice system and the mental health system. It’s a story filled with humour, tragedy
– and a happy ending.
Living with the Lights On has toured since 2016, gathering acclaim and moving audiences wherever it is performed - from Bristol to Barcelona - and including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic.
Performances start 7:30pm
