The Plasticine Men are a collective of theatre-smiths, 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.
‘Keepers’ is based on a true story from 200 years ago, far off the Welsh coast, where one man faced an ordeal so diabolical that it would go down in maritime legend, changing the way lighthouses were run forever. An enchanting tale of loss, madness and stormy companionship, conjured up with original live music and little more than a ladder and a trapdoor.
