The Light Burns Blue

During the First World War, seventeen-year-old Elsie Wright fools the world into believing she has photographed fairies in her garden. An ambitious young reporter seeks to expose Elsie as a fraud. But as she looks at the facts, she begins to think there’s more to Elsie’s story than a simple hoax.
Inspired by the true story of the Cottingley Fairies, this play looks at love, loss, fairies and photography.
“The fairies are real. Why can’t you just accept that?”
Dinner tickets are available for the Saturday night performance.
