Fireflies tells the stories of Leigh and Nelson, two lonely hearts coming face to face with the reality of their lives. Told with a fierce frankness, this darkly comic and moving script brilliantly conveys their resilience in the face of hardship. This extraordinary multi-media production combines text with film and computer graphics to create visually stunning storytelling and a uniquely theatrical experience.
Director Noreen comments, “When I read the script I was immediately drawn to the humour and frankness of the story and knew at once it would transfer perfectly to stage. It’s definitely a love story for the 21st Century, something we can all identity with, the highs, the lows and the hardships we face. Leigh and Nelson have a few things in common, both unlucky in love, both resilient and both looking for a new life.”
The play is part of the Lowry's No Boundaries season which also features Slung Low's They Only Come At Night: Resurrection and Beyond The Front Line.
Fireflies runs from Fri 16 - Sat 31 Oct, Beyond The Front Line from Mon 5 - Sat 17 Oct and They Only Come Out At Night from Wed 2 - Sat 12 Sept.
