Craig is seventeen and thinks he has it all. But things change when he decides to leave home before he's ready. With nowhere to go he quickly realises real life isn't as easy as he first thought. We follow him over the next two years as desperation leads to drugs, relationship breakdown and eventually prison.
Until It's Gone is a hard-hitting production for 13 -18 year olds based on the true-life stories of homeless young people. Now in it's ninth year of touring, the show has been performed over 600 times to more than 70,000 young people across the country.
The session lasts 1 hour and includes a performance and interactive workshop. We can accommodate audience sizes of anything between 6 and 250 young people at a time depending on the venue.
