SKIPTON Little Theatre will be hosting a production of Running From Paradise, a drama by Tobias Nicholls on the evening of Saturday, September 9.

Presented by Purple Dreams Productions, on a return visit to the Little Theatre, Running From Paradise tells the story of Larissa Bell who having spent her adult life running away, adopting new identities, and rewriting her own history, is finally happy and ready to settle down.

But when it comes to your past you can run, but you can’t hide - so shared secrets, and the sudden appearance of a familiar face, threaten not just her happiness, but her life itself.

The production company utilises light and sound to weave the plot through flashbacks, fantasies and even a play within a play to navigate the audience through Larissa’s fractured reality.

Starring Kyla Harwood, Emily Prince, Amber Sparrow, Carrie Ingram-Gettins, it is the group's first all-female cast, but its tenth touring production, and its fourth visit to the Clifford Street Little Theatre, which seats just 70 people.

Since 2019, it has performed The Last Crumb and Love Games, alongside the whodunnit The Empty Stage.

Running from Paradise will be performed in Skipton for only the second time by the company on September 9. There will be just one performance, at 7.30pm. Tickets £12. Booking online:; telephone 0752 714 1176 or email: Skipton Little Theatre has been the home of Skipton Players since 1960.
