Returning after a sell out run, #Hashtag Lightie is back!
Ella is mixed race, addicted to social media and Queen of the Selfie! Her thriving YouTube channel has make up tips, opinions, and videos of her boisterous family. But after one of her videos goes viral, Ella finds herself in the centre of a social media storm that leads to a family meltdown. With her identity and perception of beauty challenged, can Ella promote self-love without fueling hate?
Writer Lynette Linton (Former Associate Director, The Gate) and director Rikki Beadle-Blair (Team Angelica, Theatre Royal Stratford East) return with this heart-warming and hilarious exploration of the conflicting ideas of what it means to be mixed race in Britain today.
