Hard-hitting play warns of drug dangers

A PLAY that warns young people about the dangers of drugs is coming to Henley next month.

Professional actors will give two free performances of Mum, Can You Lend Me Twenty Quid? at the d:two centre in Market Place.

The play is based on a book by Elizabeth Burton-Phillips, of Twyford, whose son Nicholas killed himself while battling heroin addiction.

It will be performed twice to pupils at Gillotts School and The Henley College before the free public shows at 7.30pm on September 17 and 18.

Nicholas and his twin brother Simon, who has since kicked the habit, enjoyed a comfortable upbringing but began smoking cannabis aged 17.
