Synopsis

Child X by Lee Weatherly

Jules is passionate about acting and has been given the chance to star as the lead role in the play, Northern Lights. But at home, her life is not so happy. Her family starts to disintegrate after her father suddenly and unexpectedly leaves home. What exactly is Jules' relationship to her flamboyant actor uncle? And what terrible secret is her mother hiding? This is a moving and powerful story of one girl's search for her own identity, deftly contrasted with the glamour and excitement of the theatre.
