The production, put together by The Stephen Joseph Theatre’s OutReach department and theatre company, Forward Theatre Projects, focuses on two towns called Scarborough - one in England and another in Canada.

Set in both towns thousand of miles apart, the production looks at two teenage boys in Scarborough who find a dead body on the beach.

Meanwhile, in Canada, two similar teenagers are being questioned by police over the disappearance of a woman.

Hailed by producers as a coming of age story, the workshops are designed to give youngsters an idea of issues they frequently face in life, how they see their own environments and how they deal with the problems that arise.

The play is set to be performed at the Takeover Festival at York Theatre Royal, in May.
