Review by Meredith Kearley
A story of identity, uncertainty and hope
In December 2021 there were 80,850 children in the care system.
To help raise awareness, Riding Lights Theatre Company teamed up with the Christian charity, Home For Good to create the play, ‘My Place’. The cast instantly captivated with their truthful telling of four young people currently in the care system.
The story followed Melanie, Yonas and step-siblings Jazz and Mason - each child struggling with the uncertainty and stigma of being in the care system. Riding Lights found a beautiful way of telling these thought-provoking stories and weaving the narratives together through both song and spoken word.
