“Utterly engrossing”

Nottingham Post

“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?

All the Little Lights is a co‑production with Nottingham Playhouse’s Associate Artists Fifth Word, which received its world premiere here in October 2015. In May 2016 the play earned its writer Jane Upton the 2016 George Devine Award for Most Promising Playwright.

Written with support from charity Safe and Sound.

“A brave and timely play laced with humour and full of characters to care about.” ★★★★

Reviews

“Marks an extraordinary achievement of writer, director and actors in cultivating empathy without sanitising or over-determining the characters. This is deeply affecting work on a too-urgent subject.”
Exeunt

“Utterly engrossing… All three actresses put in terrifically multi-faceted, realistic and often darkly funny performances.”
