About LIT

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, and reunites director Stef O’Driscoll with rising star Eve Austin – reprising her role as Bex following a nomination for Best Actress in a New Play (Broadway World Awards).

LIT is a filmed play. It contains depictions of and references to sex and sexual violence, rape of a minor and underage pregnancy. It also contains themes of sexism, misogyny, the foster and care system and the adoption system.

The Farway Forest

Also come and meet the HighTide team in the Faraway Forest as we look to hear thoughts from artists and audiences about the future of theatre in the East of England; how we make it, who we make it with and where we share it. Throughout the weekend, we’ll be convening sessions on a range of topics concerning new theatre and playwright development.
