Event description

From the company that brought you classics, '21 Hearts: Vivian Bullwinkel and the Nurses of the Vyner Brooke",  'A.B Facey's A Fortunate Life', 'Sydney II: Lost and Found' and 'Taking Liberty', THEATRE 180 presents another powerful fusion of live theatre and cinema. 

'The Lighthouse Girl Saga' is a sweeping story of ordinary people living in extraordinary times: a tale of courage, resilience, hope and love. 

A bold adaptation by two of WA’s leading and award-winning playwrights, Jenny Davis OAM and Hellie Turner, this epic production blends four award-winning novels by West Australian writer, Dianne Wolfer: Lighthouse Girl, Light Horse Boy, In the Lamplight and The Last Light Horse into the most compelling theatrical event of our times.

Be transported with the First AIF convoy from the beacon of the lighthouse at Breaksea Island, to the hell of Gallipoli, the mud in the trenches at the Western Front, a nurse’s compassion in rural England and peaceful horizons in country Victoria. Journey with Fay, Charlie, Jim, Rose and Sandy, the only warhorse to return to Australia of the 136,000 sent to war, across seas and through the mire of war as their intersecting stories culminate in the forging of the ANZAC spirit and a love that conquers all.
