Imagine a peek behind never-to-be-opened curtains, seeing something that at first glance appears to be completely normal, but reveals itself to be surreal, funny, and ultimately destructive…
How The Light Gets In is a new musical about compulsive hoarding, performed in English and Gaelic and created by Lewis-based writer-director Laura Cameron-Lewis and visual theatre-maker Shona Reppe. It is a story about inheritance, and the very human desire to freeze time and gather things close, lest we lose any piece of it to the siege of time.
Supported by the Wellcome Trust, this exclusive debut performance will see the creative team stage the show in front of a live audience for the first time before it is developed into a full touring production with singer Camille O’Sullivan.
Laura’s recent work includes directing a new stage production of Alastair McIntosh’s book Soil and Soul, first seen at An Lanntair on the opening night of last year’s Faclan: the Hebridean Book Festival.
