All The Little Lights


by Jane Upton 


12th - 17th August 




Part of our Camden Fringe Season 



A dark and comic three-hander about abuse, youth and survival.


Ain’t never seen the sea.

It’s amazing.

When did you see the sea? 

I ain’t, but it is.


Joanne and Lisa were like sisters. Then Lisa left and got a new family. Joanne got a new mate. Now they’re back together for a birthday party by the railway tracks, in search of normality and love. Will they reach it?

Packed with crackling dialogue, darkness and laugh-out-loud humour, All the Little Lights is about being young, alone and trying to survive. Written by Jane Upton with support from charity Safe and Sound, the play considers how easy it is to slip through the cracks.


Winner of the George Devine Award.

Nominated for Best Play at Writer’s Guild of Great Britain.

Includes themes of child sexual exploitation which some may find distressing.
