International award-winning Theatre Company Curious Monkey has announced its national spring tour of critically acclaimed production Leaving.

And it will be coming to Alnwick Playhosue at the end of next month.

Leaving has been written by Northern Irish writer Paddy Campbell, who is based in Newcastle.

The inspiration for Leaving came from his own experiences as a key worker at a North East children’s home.

It shines a light on the lives of young people leaving care and the issues they face. The play draws upon the words of young people who have actually gone through the care system.

It is performed by an ensemble cast and created by an award-winning team, who push the boundaries of verbatim theatre, giving a voice to those experiencing and working within the system – from staff in children’s homes to MPs and policy makers to the young people themselves.

The production is directed by Amy Golding, who founded Curious Monkey in 2011. She has recently written and performed Preggers, which toured the UK in 2016 and has many directing credits to her name.

It will be on stage at Alnwick Playhouse on Thursday, March 29, at 7.30pm.
