David Sawer The Lighthouse Keepers ( premiere) 25’
Feldman/ Beckett Words and Music 40’

A fifty-metre high lighthouse, six miles out to sea, a storm raging outside, and a secret revealed between father and son just as a ship approaches the rocks…

BCMG presents two works, one new, one established, both ‘plays for radio’, one on-stage, one off-stage.

Following in the footsteps of David Sawer’s widely acclaimed Rumpelstiltskin, The Lighthouse Keepers is a claustrophobic tale based on a French play of 1905. It premieres alongside Samuel Beckett and Morton Feldman’s Words and Music, where Joe (Words) and Bob (Music), struggle to formulate expressions on themes such as love and age under the command of the mysterious Croak.

Sawer co-commissioned by BCMG Sound Investors and Cheltenham Music Festival with funds provided by Martyn Brabbins Music Fund and
