The Camden Fringe is in full swing and good to see amongst its many offers a revival of Jane Upton’s award-winning play. Inspired by a newspaper report following the Rochdale child sex abuse case, it is written from the perspective of a survivor. It tells the story of Lisa, who is celebrating her 15th birthday with friend Joanne with whom she has a complicated past relationship. Can the girls escape that past?

About All the Little Lights

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.
