The hit West End show Everybody's Talking about Jamie is returning to Sheffield seven years after it first-opened on the Crucible stage.

The much-loved story follows 16-year-old Jamie New who lives on a council estate in Sheffield and doesn't quite fit in, but, supported by his mum, dad and friends, "overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of darkness, into the spotlight".
