A new dark comedy thriller that emerged from a lockdown idea is being premiered at Sheringham Little Theatre this summer.
My Other Half is the work of Chris Sainton-Clark, a technical apprentice at the theatre, who wrote and self-published the drama during lockdown then secured an Arts Council grant and crowdfunding to bring it to the stage.
It features a couple in their 20s, H and B, who switch bodies in a freak event which gives them a clearer insight into each other’s lives and what shaped them.
Mr Sainton-Clark said: "During lockdown I wanted to do something creative – and realised that in a lot of relationships each partner does not always know what the other is going through.
“The body swap means they learn about each other – with lots of twists and turns along the way.”
