Leaving home for the first time…Is a step into the dark. A whole new life.
If you’re leaving the care system, the reality hits even harder.
An immediate, immersive experience that will change the way you think about young people in care.
Leaving is the new play by Paddy Campbell (Wet House, Live Theatre / Soho – Guardian Top Ten plays 2013) Using the young people’s own words, an ensemble cast and an award winning creative team test the boundaries of verbatim theatre to bring these real voices to the stage. Leaving gives a voice to those working within the system from staff in children’s homes to MPs and policy makers.
Leaving is a Curious Monkey production, in association with Northern Stage and directed by Curious Monkey’s Artistic Director Amy Golding.
