A challenging play bringing to life conditions in a Northern town in the 1980s was the latest production from an award winning student drama group.
Far East Youth Theatre Group performed Jim Cartwright's Road, to a packed audience at Paston Sixth Form College in North Walsham.
The gritty, fast moving, action packed play highlights the hardship of having little money, no work and very little hope.
Sam Thompson's Scullery guided the audience down the Road, showing the lives of different characters and how they are affected.
A large cast including Daisy Wilson, Alice Digby and Matilda Bailes all gave strong performances showed the strength in acting depth at Paston.
