Actors Touring Company Present
LIVING WITH THE LIGHTS ON
by Mark Lockyer
The thing is I’ve got myself
into a bit of a mess…
I keep forgetting my lines.
I’ve left my girlfriend and
I’m beginning to stink.
And to make matters worse
I’ve met the Devil.
In Mark Lockyer’s hilarious, touching and critically acclaimed solo show, the actor shares the true story of how his life fell apart following an on-stage meltdown during a 1995 RSC production of Romeo and Juliet.
Mark’s story is a terrifying roller coaster ride through the medical and criminal justice systems, through prison and hospital and on towards eventual recovery. It is testament to the fact that mental illness can happen to anyone and that, with the right treatment, there can be a life beyond it.
Supported by the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and Creative Scotland.
