WinterWalker presents Three Keepers, a silent comedy about duty, bravery and biscuits.
Touring Spring 2016
Welcome to Flounder Rock Lighthouse, where three men live and work, battling the elements and the long lonely night watches, with only each other and the seagulls for company. It’s Young ‘Arry’s first day as a lighthouse keeper, and he’s pretty excited. He’s dreamt of a life full of adventure and heroic deeds- so long as he can bring his teddy.
Wise Principal Keeper Old Tom and uptight Assistant Keeper Dick are there to teach ‘Arry the ropes, but he’s pretty hopeless. They show him that life on the lighthouse isn’t about adventure; it’s about polishing brass, mopping floors and drinking tea. Most of the time, anyway…
When the storm of the century threatens Flounder Rock, will disaster strike? Will the lamp shine true? Will they run out of biscuits?
WinterWalker presents Three Keepers, a coming-of-age story for the whole family. Three Keepers is performed completely without words, using a fast and funny blend of physical theatre, original music, inventive dance and slapstick comedy.
