I know you want what everyone else wants. A family. A home. But you’ll never have it. Cos of what’s inside you.
Joanne and Lisa were like sisters. Then Lisa got away. Now she’s back, but the ghosts from their past still haunt her. Amy just wants to belong.
Three forgotten girls spending one last night by the railway lines. Desperately trying to recover what they’ve lost. Friendship. Family. Safety. While the threat of sexual exploitation lurks in the shadows.
Deeply moving and darkly funny, this award-winning new play tells the story of the girls that slip through the cracks. In a world where nobody wants you, what would you do to survive?
