#Hashtag Lightie  is a new play about to open at The Arcola Theatre.  We sat down with stars Devon Anderson and Sophia Leonie in a break from final rehearsals to talk about this interesting play and the very compelling subject: social media.

#Hastag Lightie:

Text by Lynette Lynton, direction by Rikki Beadle-Blair, Dramaturg by John Russell Gordon, Produced by Ellie Chadwick and Clare Williams.

“I’ve never watched a play and felt like it spoke to me 100%.  Watching #Hashtag Lightie, I feel like we have a place in this country and community.  Thank you – this is what theatre is about – inspiring and empowering”.
