The Light Fantastic shows us seven denizens of the West End Taproom, each with their sorrows, each with their dreams, with nowhere to go. One of the regulars has stopped showing up and has left instructions what to do. But three strangers, and a priest, walk into the bar, and the rest of the evening could be one big joke. Or not.
This show contains mature themes and language.
