For one night and one night only
A story told by the light of London’s last candle, a moving incantation of light and shadow.
The spirits of London are growing weak.
The mystic’s lost skull has started to whisper.
Strange radio frequencies are haunting the streets.
Inexplicable objects are washing up in the gutters.
Four lost figures gather in the darkness to reignite the lights that guide us.
A new piece of theatre blending puppetry, shadow play, performance, and live music.
