During the First World War, two teenage girls fool the world into believing they have photographed fairies at the bottom of the garden.

But have they captured a little magic along with the mischief?

Inspired by the true story of the Cottingley Fairies, <i>The Light Burns Blue</i> by Silva Semerciyan is part of Platform, a new initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books.

Aimed at addressing gender imbalance and inequality in theatre, Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by school, college and youth-theatre groups.

'Drama is an important tool for building confidence and empowering young people.

Platform will give girls opportunity to access these benefits as much as their male counterparts.' - <i>Moira Buffini</i>
