Sophie Ellerby's writing revives a proud British tradition of placing complex working class people at the heart of her work.
Sophie is an actor and a writer, and the spark of LIT came from her experience studying young women and mothers in the prison system.
Originally developed through HighTide's First Commissions programme, Omnibus is co-producing the full production after presenting it as a reading in 2017.
Director Stef O'Driscoll, Artistic Director of nabokov, director of Paines Plough Roundabout season, is a leading innovator in British theatre.
Note: this production contains strong language and references to sexual violence.
When I think about you my chest feels like it's about to explode and this energy pulses through me, heat, rising all the way up through my veins from my heart.
The problem with love is that it's different for everyone.
For Bex, love is a flirt in detention and the promise of a date at a Chinese buffet.
She doesn't even like Chinese.
How long can she keep searching for love before she ends up burnt?
LIT explores the turbulent teenage years of a girl looking for love in all the wrong places.
