About this event

Can kids be parents? From the team behind the multi award-winning We Live By The Sea (Best Theatre, Critic's Choice and Peace Foundation Awards, Adelaide Fringe 2017) comes a funny and uplifting story of childhood and adulthood, responsibility and fun, accompanied by live original music and projection.

When Cassie’s mother leaves in the night, the teenager 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. 

London based Patch of Blue's accolades include Best Theatre of the Year and Critic's Pick in the New York Times; The Guardian Top 6 Shows to see at Adelaide Festival and the Excellent Play award at the Central Academy Awards, China.
