Join stand-up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for over an hour of tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it.

Adult themes and situations, but delivered childishly.

Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996, which went on to run for 19 years. Aside from Never Mind the Buzzcocks and live stand up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies As yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1).

On BBC Radio 4 Phill is a regular panellist of the award winning I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and The Unbelievable Truth and was resident curator on The Museum of Curiosity. In addition, he has presented numerous radio documentaries including, Phill Jupitus’ Comic Strips, Calvin and Hobbes and The Man Who Bought Hendrix’s Stage.

Phill’s theatre work includes playing Bottom in the Bath Theatre Royal production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, appearing alongside Jason Manford in the UK touring production of The Producers as Franz Liebkind, the West End production of Urinetown in the role of Caldwell B. Cladwell at the Apollo Theatre and his West End singing debut in 2009 when he played Edna Turnblad in the hit musical Hairspray at The Shaftesbury Theatre.

Lighthouse Theatre – Hard Times

Lighthouse Theatre – Hard Times

Lighthouse Theatre – Hard TimesHard Times

In Coketown, callous businessmen Thomas Gradgrind and Josiah Bounderby have created a logical, heartless world. While these monsters prosper, children endure a cold and loveless life. But their unhappy world is transformed when Sleary’s circus comes to town….

Lighthouse brings its unique theatrical style to this compelling tale of cold hearts and blazing humanity. Dickens’ masterful language, clear moral insight and vibrant colourful characters come to life in this many-layered theatrical tour de force.                                   

“ There is a love in the world. It’s not all self interest after all, but something very different…”

about Stephen Jeffreys’ adaptation

“ The Strength of this version…is its preservation of the satiric vitality of Dickens’ original, and a real feel for the superb rhetoric of his prose” Time Out

“ Captures the volume of suppressed anger in the text, a passion whose delicate control makes a thriller out of mawkishness.” Independent

Lighthouse has delighted audiences recently with their original adaptation of Malcolm Pryce’s smash hit cult novel Aberystwyth Mon Amour, and the highly successful 30th anniversary tour of Shirley Valentine. They return to Dickens having toured Dickens’ Christmas novel The Chimes in 2014.

5.30 – 7pm Book club event.

Come along and discuss the book and its adaptation to stage.  Free on purchase of ticket to production.

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquis of Anglesey, was one of the Earth’s wealthiest men, until he lost it all by being too damn fabulous. Seiriol Davies’s fierce, hilarious, tragi-gorgeous, ripped-up new musical about being too weird for the world (but desperately not wanting it to forget you) was the solid gold, sparkly-diamond-studded hit of the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

★★★★★ “A work of genius” – The Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “Gleeful, ludicrous – a larky collision of Gilbert & Sullivan and Monty Python” – Time Out

WINNER: The Stage Edinburgh Award & Broadway Baby Bobby
