Something for Children

The Last Lighthouse Keeper ~

A children's play by BLACK HOLE THEATRE

Wednesday 2 October @ 10.30am at Parks Hall

FREE.... but bookings are essential ~ email : enquiry@portnh.org.au OR phone: 5259 2290

 

On a rocky outcrop facing the sea a lighthouse, a Keeper, and his wife the Fisherwoman live a wonderful life in the open air, with the fish, the birds, and the changing seasons.  Until the Fisherwoman is taken by a storm.

 

The Lighthouse and the Keeper feel devastated.  They tried so hard and still they failed!  They grieve.  The old man grows lonely, solitary and cranky.  Then two young Fisher-folk move in just down the shore.  They are foolish and funny.  The Keeper stays away.  They young ones laugh, tease one another, work but not too hard, every day is filled with joy - until a storm sweeps one of them away.  The Lighthouse, remembering what happened before, uses all her power, and a bit of magic, to save the day.  The Keeper feels so relieved and so proud of his Lighthouse, that he reaches out to the young people with open arms.  Together they rejoice.  With new found friends, the Keeper's life is transformed.
