That Night Follows Day: Forced Entertainment, Contact Theatre
That Night Follows Day is a comical and poignant text by Tim Etchells, the artistic director of international theatre company Forced Entertainment.
Written for performers between the ages of 8 and 14, the work explores the ways in which adults’ words and actions define young people’s experience. Addressing the audience directly, a Greek chorus of children explore and interrogate the truisms, excuses and lies told them by their elders.
In partnership with Contact, Forced Entertainment will create a rehearsed reading of the work. 16 local children from ages 8 to 14 will work with members of the Forced Entertainment team in a series of workshops to make a one-off presentation of That Night Follows Day for the public.
Free but advance booking is recommended.
