Norwich Theatre's reputation for championing new shows continues to grow as a musical is heading to the city on its debut tour.

Six, My Son's A Queer (But What You Do?) and Cake – The Marie Antoinette Playlist have gone on to West End success, but they all started with performances in Norwich.

Hoping to follow in their footsteps is Nel's Place, which will be at Stage Two on March 22 and 23 2024 and theatre company Sheep Soup is presenting it.

"Can Nel find a way through grief to let her family in?

"Nel's Place examines what material things really mean to us and how easily we can become buried by the past."
