Can kids be parents?
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
