There are currently no events listed for this show.

Hilarious, touching and utterly bonkers — the gripping story of a life lived at the edge.

30 years ago, Mark was a promising young actor getting juicy roles at the National Theatre and RSC. Then, one summer in Stratford, his world fell apart. During a performance of Romeo and Juliet, Mark had a breakdown.

Since its premiere in 2016, Living with the Lights On has become an international hit, with over 200 performances from Bristol to Barcelona, including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic. We go on a moving, often absurdly hilarious journey with Mark in a story filled with humour, tragedy – and a cautiously happy ending.


Living with the Lights On original 2016 production directed by Ramin Gray. Revival productions 2017-2019 directed by Alice Malin.
