Friday 28th October - Dear Care, I'm Leaving

Dear Care, I'm Leaving - Devised and written by care leavers, this new theatre piece explores the difficulties of severing ties with a system that at the same time supports and sufficates. Directed by Jennie Gruner (The Great Fire, A Tale of Two Cities) and Tim Colley (Call the Midwife, Othello), the production has been staged by Drive Forward Foundation and promises to be a thought provoking performance and a great way to round off this year's National Care Leavers' Week.
