Living with the Lights On

Written by Mark Lockyer / Directed by Ramin Gray

Meet Mark.
The thing is I’ve got myself into a bit of a mess…
Mark’s an actor.
I keep forgetting my lines. I’ve left my girlfriend and I’m beginning to stink.
Mark was an actor.
And to make matters worse I’ve met the Devil.

Hilarious, touching and utterly bonkers,
a gripping story of a life lived at the edge.
