A play examining children's games over the years is being performed at Leazes Park.
Childsplay by SPID Theatre Company is an interactive journey of outdoor games from the 1950s to the present day.
Marbles, chants and rhymes, make-believe play, tag and ball games are played out with the audience being asked whether children's games and imaginations have really changed over the decades.
Childsplay actor Nicholas Ako said: “The point of this play is to show jus the differences and similarities and how children’s games have changed but they’re still the same.
“It is right, is it wrong, is it for the best?”
Fellow case member Sidney Howard added: “We get the audience to make up their minds, so we get them to question it.”
The free show is on at Leazes Park from August 16 – 19, with performances at 2pm and 6.30pm over the weekend and at 6.30pm on weeknights.
