A MAGICAL tale about small actions, big effects and finding your power will be brought to the stage by a youth theatre group.

Dorchester Youth Theatre (DYT) Seniors will present The Domino Effect at Dorchester Corn Exchange next Thursday and Friday.

Set in the East End of London, the play revolves around a central character who is mute, and explores ideas about fate, self-determination and the law of unintended consequences. The play was a five start hit at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe, created by award winning playwright, Fin Kennedy.

DYT artistic director, Jo Simons said: "The first play I did with DYT was East End Tales, by this playwright, so we are all really enjoying taking on his work again, which gives our young actors a challenge.

"And the inner city setting of Whitechapel could not be more different from here in rural Dorset."

Amina is 15 and never speaks – a silent protest against a world in which bad things always seem to happen to good people.

Instead, she retreats into fantasy. But when her mother walks out, Amina is left to fend for herself. It takes an ancient set of dominoes, and a mysterious antiques dealer, for Amina to discover her power. She learns how small actions lead to big effects, and how to master the law of unintended consequences.

Tickets cost £7.50 or £4 for members of Dorchester Arts. The play is recommended for those who are aged 13 or above.
