Intense Blackout play at Sheringham Little Theatre

PUBLISHED: 17:09 26 March 2014 | UPDATED: 17:09 26 March 2014

A fictionalised account of the real-life events that led to a teenager being charged with attempted murder will be coming to a coastal theatre.

Blackout by SecondSide Theatre Company will be performed at Sheringham Little Theatre on Friday March 28 at 7.30pm.

The one-man play, written by Scottish writer Davey Anderson, starts with a teenager called James who is charged with attempted murder and is in a prison cell.

Blackout then focuses on James as he tries to piece together the events in his life that brought him into a secure care unit.

Presented through a fusion of scripted dialogue, visual imagery, physicality and live and recorded music, the play shows James waking to find himself in a police cell with no memory of how or why he came to be there.

As the story of violence, heroism and loss unfolds, the troubled teenager tells his tale with engaging energy and honest brutality.

Second Side was set up three years ago and aims to put on shows for 14 to 25 year olds, to attract younger people to the theatre.

Tickets for the 7.30pm show cost £10 for adults and £5 for students. To book call 01263 822347 or visit www.sheringhamlittletheatre.com.
