To the friendships that raise us
From lighting the overpriced scented candle that they all chipped in for, to burning a piece of paper with their exes’ name on it, these women have done it together.
‘Sisterhood of the Travelling Lighter’ is a vibrant, messy, heartfelt show for anyone who’s grown up with the girls they met in the first year of high school. Four women on the cusp of graduating indulge in a trip down memory lane (quite literally) to retrace the landmarks of their friendship. Grappling with finding their place in the world, they lean on each other whilst also coming to terms with what is driving them apart.
Brought to you by a killer creative team dedicated to imaginative storytelling through a distinctly female, queer lens. Experience the unique feelings of growing up with the women you couldn’t live without.
