Cassie And The Lights

Critically-acclaimed Cassie and the Lights arrives at Theatre Royal Plymouth after sell-out runs in Edinburgh and New York. With a stunning live soundtrack and “blazing performances” (The Stage), this show is truly “UNMISSABLE” (The Reviews Hub).

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 this play starring Alex Brain, Helen Chong and Emily McGlynn celebrates the resilience of teenagers and features the voices of Bethany Antonia (House of the Dragon), John Thomson (Men Behaving Badly), Louisa Harland (Derry Girls), Wendi Peters (Coronation Street) and Oli Higginson (The Last Five YearsBridgerton).

Cassie and the Lights is a tender and playful examination of what makes a family and what holds it together, and has received over 40 ★★★★ and ★★★★★ reviews.
