60 scenes, any number of which to be performed in any order, by any combination of children and adults.
Written by this year's Susan Smith Blackburn Award winner, Alice Birch.
[BLANK] by Alice Birch will be performed as part of the National Theatre's Connections Festival on the opening night: 26 June. Tickets are on sale now.
Alice Birch’s theatrical provocation is a co-commission between Clean Break and National Theatre Connections.
[BLANK] is no traditional play, it’s a series of 60 scenes - some of which may feel connected, others less so - about adults and children impacted by the criminal justice system. It's about what life is like when adults feel absent from it. The theatre groups have been provided with all 60 scenes and are allowed to perform as many or as few as they wish in order to construct their own narratives. This means each performance of [BLANK] is completely unique.
[ BLANK ] will be performed on the opening night of the National Theatre Connections Festival, Tuesday 26 June, in the Dorfman Theatre by See&Eye Theatre.
See&Eye Theatre is based at City and Islington College. The company is in its third year and offers an opportunity for their students on the UAL Extended Diploma to work as a professional company. They fuse physical theatre with naturalism and aim to interpret the texts they work on with a dynamic and creative approach.
