About the Show
“Women of the Watch, Keepers of the Light,” written and performed by Anna Marck is an uplifting 45-minutes of music, laughter, and simple honest storytelling. The play follows Anna as she relives hilarious family trips to lighthouses in Michigan, which ignites a passion to share the spectacular stories of various female lighthouse keepers of the Great Lakes. She details the lives of four particular keepers by donning voice and movement. As she steps into these brave women’s shoes, she discovers the tragedy of the hardships they faced and the beauty of their spirits. Each show is followed by a Q and A talkback. The show was commissioned by The Lorenzo Cultural Center in Macomb, MI.
