Theatre 180 | The Lighthouse Girl Saga

When the world is dark with war, courage and heart light the way home.

Based on the novels by award-winning author, Dianne Wolfer.

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 a compelling theatrical event.

Striking visuals, evocative sound and innovative staging transports the audience with the First AIF convoy as it embarks from King George Sound, and farewells Australia 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.

THEATRE 180, with a mandate of GREAT STORIES, WELL TOLD, produces works of integrity which are moving, innovative and entertaining. Proudly Western Australian, they present a range of stories, through award-winning Australian and international plays, together with new writing from WA playwrights.

They are known for audacious, authentic and inclusive theatre, focused on telling stories with heart, bringing together generations, and connecting communities.
