After the success of our 2022 tour of My Place, Riding Lights Theatre Company is pleased to announce Cups on a String by Bridget Foreman, a new play touring in partnership with Transforming Lives for Good, a Christian charity that helps churches to bring hope and a future to struggling children.

Transforming Lives for Good is partnering with Riding Lights Theatre Company to tour Cups on a String to venues across the UK for 8 weeks in autumn 2024, offering a powerful and moving evening of theatre, and we’d like to invite you to book a performance.


Alongside the performance of Cups on a String, the evening will provide an opportunity to hear about the work of Transforming Lives for Good, and how each of us can play a part in supporting the lives of struggling children.


Joe’s eleven and home is hard. School is even harder. He breaks stuff: pencils, chairs, rules. One thing he won’t break is his silence.


Heather’s fifty-seven. She’s got a comfortable life and a comfortable home. But once a week, every week, she spends a very uncomfortable hour – with Joe.


Where will this journey of hours and weeks take them?


Cups on a String is a warm-hearted and moving new play, developed from remarkable true stories. It’s about playfulness, listening and laughter, and how risk-taking and trust can lead to growth and transformation.


Challenging, surprising and hopeful, Cups on a String will take audiences into the heart of the friendship between a child and their coach, and the profound impact it has on them both.



Tour Dates

Thursday 26th September - Friday 22nd November 2024. (Excl. Sun 27th October – Sun 3rd November)


Booking Fee

To book a performance, the initial outlay for hosting churches is a booking fee of £300. All box office revenue will be equally split three ways between Riding Lights Theatre Company, TLG and your venue, enabling you to recoup your £300 fee by selling 100 tickets, or to generate additional funds from ticket sales above this number.


Ticket Price

General admissions: £15

Concessions (U18s, unemployed, students, senior citizens): £10

Supporter (for those who wish to give a little more): £20


If your venue wishes to include a ticket subsidy for potential audience members, to offer tickets for donations or to offer a free performance, this will affect the booking fee. Please get in touch with us should you wish to discuss this. We give lots of practical support from our office including help with financial planning.



Approx. 120 minutes for the whole evening.

To book a performance and to find out more about hosting Cups on a String, please contact our Tour Administrator Celeste via email - or call the Riding Lights office on 01904 655317.
