About The Event

WHO IS ADA? With Sadie she's an Aussie girl in London, a performer, a ball of creativity and a lover of food. With Stuart she's funny and quirky, capable of finding romance in a dinner of crisps on a cold harbour and long train rides. With her family she's the joker, the peacekeeper, the entertainer. But she doesn't have to choose which version of herself to be… right? Ada's answer to most questions is: yes. Every night is an opportunity to be thrilled and every morning a chance to recount it to her friends, so when she falls for Sadie and Stuart at the same time, she sees no reason not to pursue them both. But as the realities of modern life begin to catch up with her, and everyone wants Ada to define herself in relation to them, she feels the weight of the questions: which version of yourself is most true? And do other people enhance your best self, or distort it? Go Lightly is a tribute to party girls who'd rather enjoy the present than fear the future or regret the past, and a love letter to the community you find when you're far from home.

Brydie Lee-Kennedy is an Australian TV writer. She has written on shows for Netflix, Apple TV and Disney. In a former life she was a cabaret performer, kid's party entertainer and sex columnist.
