Lights Down Productions was founded by Caley Powell and we produce female led new writing, particularly sharing under represented stories.
We've produced plays sharing a childfree by choice women's stories, looking at women in war, exploring a female particle physicists relationship with a swing dancing nurse and produced a new writing showcase called the Light On Showcase that showcased stories such as a date going wrong, a truck driver describing an odd experience whilst driving, a couple planning a digital wedding to an Englishman and an American swapping Citizenship.
The second series of the Light On Showcase will be released on Friday 21st May 2021. With only one month left of lockdown we wanted to celebrate how far we've come and the resilience and connections we've found by premiering 10 new pieces by female identifying writers.
As well as producing Caley is also a playwright and her piece 'The Competition' was written as part of our Light On Showcase and was based on her wedding being affected by the coronavirus lockdown and it was released on what should have been her wedding day. Caley also wrote a monologue 'Yikes!' about a childfree by choice women waiting on the birth of her new nephew which was part of Skin and Blister Theatre scratch night. She is currently writing her first full length play, 'Loop', a one woman gig theatre piece.
