By Simon Stephens. Directed by Sarah Frankcom. With Original Music by Jarvis Cocker.
24 OCTOBER 2019 - 16 NOVEMBER 2019
“Look me in the eye and tell me you’ll never leave me.”
A woman wakes up with a stranger beside her. A student argues with his lover. A single mother fights to feed her baby. A married man flirts with two younger women. And far away, one devastating event is about to change all their lives forever.
Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom says goodbye to the Royal Exchange with an extraordinary new play by Simon Stephens, with original music by Jarvis Cocker. Connecting five relatives in five disparate English towns, from Blackpool to Durham, LIGHT FALLS is a richly layered play about life in the face of death, about how our love survives us after we’ve gone – and about how family, community and kindness help the North survive.
