“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 they’re back together for one last birthday party by the railway tracks. But can they salvage their friendship or will ghosts from the past haunt them forever?
Poignant, moving and darkly funny, this award-winning new play tells the searing story of three girls slipping through the cracks in society, desperately searching for friendship, family and themselves. In a world where nobody wants you, what would you do to survive?
Written with support from charity Safe and Sound.
All The Little Lights was the joint winner of the 2016 George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright.
