'When looking at contemporary new writing for young actors to perform, one could be mistaken for thinking that youth drama was a predominantly male pursuit, rather than the other way round" ~ Lucy Kerbel of Tonic Theatre on why she launched the Platform series

Good roles for young female actors are in short supply

In partnership with publisher Nick Hern Books, Tonic Theatre set out to change that by commissioning a series of new plays with mainly or entirely female casts for schools and youth theatre groups to perform

Aimed at addressing gender imbalance and inequality in theatre, Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by school, college and youth-theatre groups

The Light Burns Blue by Silva Semerciyan is one of the first three, all of which are available for public performance ....

The Light Burns Blue - M1, F9

During the First World War, seventeen-year-old Elsie Wright fools the world into believing she has photographed fairies in her garden

An ambitious young reporter seeks to expose Elsie as a fraud

But as she looks at the facts, she begins to think there's more to Elsie's story than a simple hoax

Inspired by the true story of the Cottingley Fairies

M1,F9 + Mixed Cast of up to 30 characters


"Drama is an important tool for building confidence and empowering young people. Platform will give girls opportunity to access these benefits as much as their male counterparts" ~ Moira Buffini
