All the Little Lights

by Jane Upton

"I know you want what everyone else wants. A family. A home. But you'll never have it. Cos of what's inside you."

After a successful National Tour in 2017, Fifth Word are proud to be bringing Jane Upton's extraordinary new play ALL THE LITTLE LIGHTS to London this October. .


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 charity Safe and Sound, the play considers where we find family and how easy it is to slip through the cracks in society. Suitable for ages 14+
