Lamplighter Drama Ltd. was founded by Emma Randle (Executive Producer) and Charlotte Lloyd Webber (Executive Director) in 2010 and is dedicated to the creation and production of new and imaginative theatre of many genres. Their name is inspired by their first production:
“Perhaps, the lamplighter is absurd. However… at least his work has some meaning. When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one more flower. It is a beautiful occupation. And since it is beautiful, it is truly useful” (from The Little Prince, translated by Irene Testot-Ferry).
Between them, Emma and Charlotte have developed and produced over forty shows in the commercial and subsidised sectors; from Shakespeare and other classic texts to new writing.
