The License to Thrill Theatre Company will be bringing their shocking and soul searching production FEAR to the Liverpool Actor's Studio next month.

Hilarious and poignant, the intense performance will be made up of four one-act plays that last up to 20 minutes each. It features local actors, including LIPA Acting degree graduates and current students from the LIPA 4:19 Advanced Drama Company.

Directed by Les Dawson, an experienced drama teacher and theatre director, FEAR is strictly for over 18s only - containing scenes of graphic violence and strong language.

It runs on 19 October.
