Local playwrights Lantern Writers are bringing brand new writing to LightNight this year here at the Museum of Liverpool. Along with director Nick Fawdry they invite you to a performance of short plays which reflect LightNight's theme of Ritual.

Let them take you on a wave of emotion through a diverse mixture of comedy and drama, in plays which bridge the past to the present and remind you how we are all in part enslaved by the theme of Ritual.

LightNight at the Museum of Liverpool

This is part of a themed LightNight evening of events at the Museum of Liverpool. Throughout the evening we are offering a rare opportunity to glimpse into the lives of the first people to settle here and gain some understanding of a society and culture far removed from our own.

Connect with a people who did not see the divide between the supernatural and natural worlds like we do today, who revered the landscape they lived in, the same landscape that we inhabit now. Uncover how these societies have been rediscovered by museum archaeologists and explore the belief systems of Merseyside’s earliest people.

Through the scant symbols and structures they left behind, LightNight visitors will piece together the rhythm of the daily lives of prehistoric people; their rituals and their beliefs.

This event is part of our LightNight 2019 event series.
