Can kids be parents? When Cassie’s mother disappears, the teenager wants to care for her sisters on her own. Is she the right person to be a parent now, or should she let foster parents adopt her sisters and create a new family?

Based on real-life events and interviews with children in care and featuring live music, this play celebrates the resilience of teenagers. Cassie and the Lights is a tender and playful examination of what makes a family and what holds it together.

★★★★ “Glows in the darkness…a thoughtful, warm, moving hour that will leave you wanting to call whoever you think of as family” The Guardian

★★★★ “Bursts with life and quirkily observed truths” Lyn Gardner, The Stage
