It is a play without words for everyone aged eight and over.

It is a tale of life on a rock lighthouse, told through an inventive blend of physical theatre, dance and comedy and is inspired by the silent film clowning of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

The tour starts on February 7 with two performances, at 2pm and 7pm at Déda in Chapel Street, Derby.

This will be followed by a performance on February 10 at Buxton Opera House.

Director Kitty Winter, from Belper, explained that the inspiration for the show came from an exhibition on lighthouses at the National Maritime Museum.
