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 a new play by Paddy Campbell (Wet House). 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 within the system, from staff in children’s homes to MPs and policy makers.
Using the young people’s own words, an ensemble of actors and an award-winning creative team will test the boundaries of verbatim theatre to bring these real voices to the stage - their joys and their struggles.
Leaving will create an immediate, immersive experience that will change the way you think about young people in care.
