We are delighted to say that we are collaborating with Welsh Noir author, Malcolm Pryce, once again to create a festive version of Louie Knight's Aberystwyth Adventures...

O Little Town of Aberystwyth

” Children singing, police sirens ringing, chestnuts stolen from an orphan’s fire.  …..and in a filthy alley in Chinatown a department store Father Christmas lies dead in a pool of  his own blood – Aberystwyth at Christmas.”

The Queen of Denmark hires the only gumshoe private detective in Ceredigion, Louie Knight. In five days, with his trusty side-kick Calamity, he has to solve the case – if not, there will be no Christmas, no presents for the kids and no concert for the carol-singing penguins…

Following the success of Aberystwyth Mon Amour in 2016, Lighthouse Theatre returns with a stage premiere of another Malcolm Pryce Welsh Noir novel.

Directed by Llinos Daniel, with original music by Kieran Bailey, this is a co-production with Pontardawe and Aberystwyth Arts Centres with the help of Arts Council Wales and Ty Cerdd.
