Sunkissed is among the five dramas in Sheringham Little Theatre's 59th season of summer theatre running from July to September.

It was penned by playwright James Cawood, whose previous work The Revival was also launched at the award-winning north Norfolk venue.

Mr Cawood said: "Comedy and thrillers are my favourite styles of theatre, both as a playwright and a former actor.

"I had the Sunkissed idea in the shower after a run. An actor friend Richard Earl, who has appeared in Sheringham summer seasons, recommended the town to me - and I love it.

"The theatre is amazing; a perfect venue which is intimate, with a loyal audience, strong group of rep actors and the drive of theatre director Debbie Thompson who appreciates new writing."

The play runs from August 21-28. Box-office 01263 822347
