Written by Nottingham writer, Jane Upton, and directed by Angharad Jones and Laura Ford from Fifth Word, All the Little Lights is a hard hitting piece of work looks at child sex exploitation; the human stories behind the headlines… It premieres at Nottingham Playhouse before embarking on a national tour. http://www.fifthword.co.uk/whats-on/all-the-little-lights
From All The Little Lights:
“I know you want what everyone else wants. A family. A home. But you’ll never have it. Cos of what’s inside you.” Joanne and Lisa were like sisters. Then Lisa left. Now she’s back for one last birthday party by the railway tracks. Can their relationship be rekindled or will the ghosts of the past haunt them forever? Packed with crackling dialogue, darkness and laugh out loud humour, All the Little Lights is about being young, alone and trying to survive. Written with support from Derby-based charity Safe and Sound, the play considers where we find family and how easy it is to slip through the cracks in society.
I saw a rehearsed reading of this brilliant new play last year at Derby theatre. Definitely one to support!
At The Neville Studio at Nottingham Playhouse from Tuesday 20th October to Thursday 22 Oct. 8pm.
