Photos have been released offering a first look inside the rehearsal room of the 20th-anniversary revival of Judy Upton's Confidence.

The piece, which was first produced at the Birmingham Rep in 1998, follows a group of '90s teens living on a seafront trying to get away from their lives.

Directed by Boundless Theatre's artistic director Rob Drummer and running at Southwark Playhouse from this month, the piece stars actor and YouTuber Tanya Burr (making her professional stage debut) as Ella alongside Anna Crichlow (Pride and Prejudice) as Ruby, Rhys Yates (Lucky Man) as Ben and Will Pattle (Enron, Brit School) as Dean.

Upton is an award-winning playwright and her stage plays include Ashes and Sand which won the George Devine Award and Bruises at Royal Court Theatre.

The piece has design by Amelia Jane Hankin, lighting design by Zoe Spurr and sound design by Father.
