    LOUISA is the incredible true story of how on one stormy night in January 1899, the communities of Lynton & Lynmouth and Porlock rallied in a raging storm to save all the souls of the Forest Hall; a ship floundering in the Bristol channel.

    With the help of horses and sheer determination, they dragged the heavy lifeboat Louisa thirteen miles across open moor to launch it from Porlock Weir and saved everyone on board.

    This visceral new play uses physical theatre and Sea Shanties over 80 minutes to tell the extraordinary tale. The story of the Louisa is testament to the resilience and courage of a small community achieving extraordinary things in exceptional circumstances.

    Exmoor-based Pleasure Dome Theatre Company partnering with the RNLI hope everyone will leave energised and hopeful about what can be achieved when people work together.

    “A perfect evening with superb entertainment. Very imaginative. Wonderful setting used to total excellence.” ★★★★★ BritishTheatre.com for LEAR 2019"
