Can kids be parents? From the team behind the multi award-winning We Live By The Sea (Critic's Pick and Best Theatre of the Year- The New York Times) comes a funny and uplifting story of childhood and adulthood accompanied by live original music and projection.

When Cassie’s mother leaves in the night, the teen wants to care for her younger sisters on her own. But is Cassie the right person to be "Mum" now, or should she let their foster parents adopt her sisters,

and create a new family?

Based on real-life events and interviews with children in care, Cassie and the Lights examines our ideas of what makes a family, and celebrates the incredible determination and resilience of teenagers.

Alex has written and directed this brand new play with music for his company Patch of Blue.
