All The Little Lights
JOINT WINNER OF THE GEORGE DEVINE AWARD 2016.
Nominated for Best Play at the Writers’ Guild Awards 2017 and Best New Play at the Off West End Awards
ALL THE LITTLE LIGHTS previewed at Derby Theatre, the Old Library Mansfield and Nottingham Playhouse in autumn 2015. It then toured across the UK, followed by a 4-week run at the Arcola Theatre in London, in 2017.
“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 got away. Now she’s back, but the ghosts from their past still haunt her. While Amy just wants to belong.
Three forgotten girls spending one last night by the railway lines. Desperately trying to recover what they’ve lost. Friendship. Family. Safety. While the threat of sexual exploitation lurks in the shadows.
Deeply moving and darkly funny, this award-winning new play tells the story of the girls that slip through the cracks. In a world where nobody wants you, what would you do to survive?
Developed with support from child sexual exploitation awareness charity Safe and Sound.
Suitable for ages 14+
