Lackaday, lackaday – Mr Grinling is a lighthouse keeper with a big, hungry problem. Every day Mrs Grinling transports his lunch by fly-wire across water and waves. But presently, it is not Mr Grinling, but the pesky seagulls who eat their fill. So Mrs Grinling, Mr Grinling and Hamish The Cat put heads and paws together so the lighthouse keeper can have his lunch.
Join Drop Bear Theatre in this devilishly simple stage adaptation of the modern classic picture book The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. With whimsy, windswept humour, and a musical kick audiences are guaranteed a quirky stage delight.
