Following a turbulent two years negotiating COVID and digital performances, we are delighted to return to live theatre this spring with The Many Lives Of Amy Dillwyn by Sonia Beck and Derek Cobley. Thank you to ACW and to our loyal audience during this difficult time. We welcome donations to help us continue our work.




We are working with The Welfare in Ystradgynlais to 're-stage' our promenade performance on the streets of the town where we meet Josef Herman, sketching his favourite subjects...

Our last performance in front of a live audience was It's A Wonderful Life in December 2019... We are back in July 2021 with a new show created for an audience on bicycles for Pontardawe Arts Centre, Those Were The Days...


Lighthouse Theatre are a touring company producing classic and contemporary theatre for new and established audiences. The spaces that we visit reflect our commitment to engaging people beyond our mainstream audience with whom we have a reputation for high quality theatre. We tour theatres, pubs, immersive spaces and cycle paths!

Our audio books are available on and film versions of our performance walking tours are available free to view on YouTube:

In 2019 we toured It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play.  It was produced in co-operation with Pontardawe Arts Centre, Arts Council Wales and Tŷ Cerdd.

Comin Soon: The Many Lives Of Amy Dillwyn by Sonia Beck and Derek Cobley

This solo performance tells the story of a Swansea legend – the novelist philanthropist and feminist industrialist Amy Dillwyn. Her extraordinary life is told in her own words, adapted from her diaries and novels.

See the Current Production page above for performance details

We also offer theatre skills’ workshops as an adjunct to touring productions, usually – but not exclusively – based around the text we are performing. Over the last few years we have performed works by Noel Coward, Dylan Thomas, Richard Burton, Daniel Jones, Shakespeare and several new plays.

Take a look around and should you wish to book one of our shows or workshops or if you  just want to get in touch and find out more, please go to our Contacts page.

Strong story-telling, whether classic or original, familiar or unexpected, is at the heart of what we do, and always exploring the possibilities of performance.

Theatre with heart, in the heart of the community.

Lighthouse…a beacon of quality shining a light on the world of theatre
