LIT by Sophie Ellerby
"I'm making him work for it. Got him to buy me a pack of Tangfastics and a can of Lilt before I showed him my tits."
The problem with love is that it’s different for everyone. For Bex, love is a handjob in detention and the promise of a date at a Chinese buffet. She doesn't even like Chinese.
LIT explores the turbulent teenage years of a girl looking for love in all the wrong places.
Sophie Ellerby's writing revives a proud British tradition of placing complex working class people at the heart of her work. Sophie is an actor and a writer, and the spark of LIT came from her experience studying young women and mothers in the prison system.
Director Stef O'Driscoll, director of Paines Plough Roundabout 2018 season, is a leading innovator in British theatre; 'Creates an alternative experience for people who don’t think theatre is for them' The Stage.
