Mind the Light at Alderney Landing
A workshop presentation of an original queer musical about one woman’s fight for love, family, and freedom as she struggles to keep a lighthouse in the 19th century with book music and lyrics written by award-winning artist Gabrielle Papillon.
Mind the Light is about a family of Lightkeepers set in the 1880s. Azélie, a young woman dedicated to keeping a lighthouse, struggles with love, grief, isolation, and family dynamics, and fights to keep her independence and her home through her dangerous and physically demanding work, tremendous loss, and a love that she must keep secret.
A story of finding joy and pride in hard work, the bravery in small actions, and big risks, and generational strength passed down from a mother and sister, to her brother and daughter, in a working class context, where privilege was limited and autonomy & safety for women and Queer folk is hard won and always at stake.

A Sapphic Affair at Alderney Landing
A Sapphic Affair is a poetry-movement hybrid play based on the Poetry of Sappho. A Sapphic Affair is a queer-affirming love story. It is about passion, surrender and vulnerability (with a little bit of rope).
A Sapphic Affair is a queer-affirming love story, centered on femininity and the magnetism of romance and erotic desire. Based on the work of Sappho, the earliest Greek woman poet whose work survives, her verse is intimate, private, addressed to specific women, direct, very gay and very wet. A Sapphic Affair follows the journey of two women, how they bond and surrender to each other, how their fear drives them away, but also how an unbreakable bond brings them back together. In this play, the media of shibari and movement/dance is the story: The depth of their connection, the deepest form of surrender and trust, and emotions and taking on the ropes, literally and figuratively.
Tickets start at $15.
