Three Towns drama company Triple Act have joined forces with Irvine's Maritime Museum for a new play about the mystery of the Eilean Mor lighthouse keepers.

The company's adult drama group will put on two performances of Light's Out in the museum's Linthouse building on Friday, October 13.

Light's Out: The Mystery of the Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers is an enthralling and suspenseful play that delves deep into the mysterious disappearance of the three men who worked on the Eilean Mor lighthouse in the Flannan Isles.

The three men vanished without trace in 1900 - and the mystery has never been solved.

Set against the backdrop of the rugged and isolated island in the Outer Hebrides, this new gripping production combines elements of historical drama, psychological thriller, and supernatural intrigue to captivate audiences.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Light's Out

As the investigation unfolds, the audience is drawn into a world of isolation, harsh weather conditions, and the psychological toll of living in close quarters with only two other men for months on end.

Tensions rise as the search for answers intensifies, revealing secrets and hidden conflicts among the keepers.

But there's more to the story than meets the eye.

As the characters grapple with the possibility of foul play, superstitions about the island's eerie history and ancient myths begin to surface.

Are the keepers victims of a tragic accident, or is there a supernatural force at play?

Theatre lovers can expect a thrilling theatrical experience that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats, questioning the boundaries of reality and the depths of the human psyche.

With its blend of historical accuracy, psychological tension, and a touch of the supernatural, this play offers a unique and unforgettable journey into one of Scotland's most enduring mysteries.

Triple Act, based in Ardrossan, were on the verge of closure earlier this year, until the North Ayrshire Ventures Trust stepped in with a lifeline £10,000 grant.

There will be two performances on Friday, October 13, at 6pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets, which include a visit to the museum,  are priced £10, while those under 16, senior or in receipt of government assistance can make a donation.
