Next Production

"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. "

‘A show that will bring sunshine into the lives of all who see it.’ (Daily Telegraph)

The one-man show, Morecambe by Tim Whitnall is more than just a monologue. It forms an incredibly emotional yet hilarious evocation of a perennial national treasure, Eric Morecambe. It takes its audience back to 1984 to join the much-loved comedian for the penultimate stop on his heavenward journey, reminiscing, before dancing off into immortality.
Having won a 2009 Scotsman Fringe First Award for ‘innovation and outstanding new writing’, a subsequent West End production of Morecambe was also awarded the 2010 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.

Lighted Fools Theatre Company is proud to be presenting one of the first amateur productions in the country of this acclaimed show.

The play will be directed by Richard Parish with musical direction and sound by David Perkins. It will be designed by David Hemsley-Brown with lighting by Conor Brown.

David Webb, who will be making his 22nd appearance with the Company, will play Eric Morecambe. David has been seen most recently in, Quartermaine’s Terms, Two, Neville’s Island, Death and the Maiden, Larkin With Women and The Price

Taken at Midnight is set in Berlin during the 1930s when a brilliant lawyer, Hans Litten, called Hitler as a witness in the trial of a gang of SA men. On the night of the Reichstag fire, Hitler has Litten arrested as an enemy of human society. As Litten disappears into the Nazi system, his mother, Irmgard, often at enormous personal risk, fights for the release of her son. This riveting drama explores her struggle, her son's resistance and the heroic battle of the weak against the powerful, truth against lies and mothers against murderers.
