Curious Monkey presents in association with Northern Stage LEAVING

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.

Leaving is the new play by Paddy Campbell (Wet House, Live Theatre / Soho – Guardian Top Ten plays 2013)

It tells the real stories of care leavers and their experiences at the pivotal moment when they leave care. It also gives a voice to those working in the system – from staff in children’s homes to MPs and policy makers.

Using people’s own words, an ensemble cast and an award-winning creative team will test the boundaries of verbatim theatre to bring these real voices to the stage.

Leaving will create an immediate, immersive experience that will change the way you think about young people in care.

Leaving is a Curious Monkey production, in association with Northern Stage and directed by Curious Monkey’s Artistic Director Amy Golding (preggers, Beats North, Mamela).
