A one act play inspired by experiences of young people leaving care is set to open at a north Norfolk theatre.
Writer Steve Banks and a group of young performers aged between 12 and 17 have crafted the show, Kinder Shores, which opens at the Sheringham Little Theatre later this month.
The play explores lives shaped by the care system, and the show's cast, who attend drama groups at the Little Theatre, are excited to put their skills to the test
Paston College pupil Ben Sayers, 17, one of the show's principal actors, said: "I love it - I can't wait.
"We're not allowed to give too much away, but it's going to be great."
Audiences will be invited to join in an informal discussion with the writer, cast, care leavers and care professionals after the performances.
It will be performed on Friday, May 31, and Saturday, June 1, both at 7.30pm. For tickets, contact the box office on 01263 822347 or visit www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com
