Synopsis

Selling Light by Effie Gray

LIST OF INGREDIENTS: DILAPIDATED LIGHTHOUSE, OBSESSIONAL RESEARCH STUDENT, IDENTITY CRISES.

Bored, the city slicker Peter Cooper casually leans back on his chair and reads the online advert for something that he has never seen for sale before. What the hell, he thinks, as he clicks ‘buy’.

In a small seaside village, the lighthouse keeper drinks alone, averting his eyes from the beams which seem to seek him out. A young research student studies crabs, unaware that soon she will meet her most interesting specimen yet …

Their lives become intertwined as the hilarious seaside drama unfolds. Selling Light explores the connections between human beings in a world where everything is for sale and the interpretation of reality is up for grabs.
