If the Lights Change by Martina Collender

*Low Price Previews Tue 22 & Wed 23 Aug, all tickets €10*

It's Lilly's 18th birthday, join her on her journey through her day that will be full of presents she desperately wants and presents she doesn't. "If The lights change before I count to 3, you'll never leave me, 1....2....3"

If The Lights Change is a coming of age story, about chance and our need for encouragement, a story about the voices in our heads and the battle for us to listen to them, a story about our past, present and our future. About playing with Lego and our first days at school, finding your way of saying what you need. It's a story about brothers and sisters, teddy bears who have heard too much, first kisses and last dates. Siblings and families and the friends we choose. How we find ways to keep our head up, oh and pretending the first time you drink to your parents is on your 18th birthday. It's about chocolate cake,dresses and make up, Disney films, and fairytale endings. It's about finding the courage to take the first step into starting the rest of your life, and trusting in the past, it's about trying on different versions of yourself, birthday cards and wishes, Join Lilly on this hilarious, funny, and touching look at birthdays and celebrating someone's life and story.
