The Light Trail is a hilarious and moving play about psychosis and its impact on the lives of people who experience it, told via three interweaving monologues.
The Light Trail underwent a rehearsed reading on Zoom last year, and was since shortlisted for The Women’s Prize 2021. It has received excellent feedback from The Bush, leading to its writer Lydia Sabatini being selected for The Bush Emerging Writer’s Group 2021-22.
