"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. "
(Macbeth: Act V Scene V)
'MORECAMBE' by Tim Whitnall
Following its successful run in Guildford, Lighted Fools will be giving another performance of 'Morecambe' at Fishers Adventure Farm Park's Theatre in Wisborough Green, West Sussex
The play features DAVID WEBB as Eric Morecambe
‘Lighted Fools Theatre Company was able to sing from the rooftops ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ - with its quite outstanding performance of Tim Whitnall's bitter sweet play.'
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.

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.
First commissioned for the 2014 Chichester Festival and starring Penelope Wilton, the play then transferred to the West End for a further successful run.
