Alone in a lighthouse in the seas off Cornwall, a storm is fast approaching.
Isaac Dyer, the lighthouse keeper, tries to find shelter, but the rising water brings
with it a presence from his past. The ocean raging, he must
confront the demons that emerge from the darkness.
But as the storm dies, the coastguard discover Black Rock Lighthouse standing alone,
towering over the waters of the Atlantic, and inside, no sign of life.
From Cornish writer Jethro Compton, Sirenia merges Celtic folklore
with a modern tale of love, loss, and a life of solitude.
Sirenia premièred at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015 and has been licensed for production internationally.
