Keepers

Keepers is a sweet tale of two Thomas’ who have taken on the mantle as protectors of sailors against the capricious whims of a roaring ocean. Set in an isolated lighthouse The Plasticine Men’s whimsical production details the touchingly symbiotic relationship between the two men.

With the aid of only a light, two chairs and a ladder, director Simon Day has masterfully crafted ingenious ways of representing both the cramped conditions within this tiny fortress and the enormity of the floating enemy outside.

Performed with physical flair by Martin Bonger and Fionn Gill, the central relationship at the heart of this story is infused with an palpable tenderness. Lawrence Williams’ sound design is outstanding, as is the level of synchronicity between performance and sound.

Keepers perhaps loses its way towards the end, but this is a genuinely touching show, given to us by all involved with infinite care.
