Pay As You Decide

What happens when the person you love doesn’t want to be alive? With themes of love, depression, care and hope, The Lighthouse tells a real-life story of loving somebody through crisis. Reflective, tipsy and defiantly playful, it’s a love letter to hope, a messy valentine. Incorporating elements of stand-up, puppetry, physical theatre and cabaret, this is a story about getting through the days and limping through the nights and – somewhere along the way – singing in the kitchen and dancing in the streets.

The Lighthouse is supported by Leeds Playhouse, Theatre Deli and Slung Low, in partnership with the Samaritans, and funded by Arts Council England. Trigger warning: this play includes topics of suicide, mental health and hospitalisation. 

If you wish to Pay As You Decide in-person, please set the ticket amount to £0. Our website will still ask for your payment details as you checkout, but will not charge you.
