A play created by students to raise funds for a Norwich-based cancer charity will take to the stage this weekend.
Closer is Patrick Marber's comical play which looks at the world of relationships through four characters - failing writer Dan, photographer Anna, dermatologist Larry, and Alice.
A group of University of East Anglia students have produced their own version of the play which will held at the Puppet Theatre, Whitefriars, tomorrow and Monday at 7.30pm.
The performance will raise money for Big C.
Rosie Wheat, director, said: 'Raising money for a charity is difficult enough; putting on a play to do so was a challenge I couldn't pass by.
'I want to raise money to help cancer research and make cancer patients' lives easier if that is possible. We've all been affected by cancer; it is a cruel and unforgiving medical condition, and Big C seems a fantastic local charity to support.'

The team behind Closer had to fundraise �500 to pay off the venue and the rights. They raised the money by cake bake sales, car boots and raffles.
They have also had to juggle their university work with producing the play.
