For Compass Festival in collaboration with Opera North Projects, Forced Entertainment are looking for 16, 8-14 year olds who will perform a rehearsed reading of THAT NIGHT FOLLOWS DAY by Tim Etchells.

That Night Follows Day is written by Forced Entertainment’s Artistic Director Tim Etchells for performers aged 8 to 14.  It looks at how adults influence young people as they grow up.  Speaking directly to the audience the young performers explore the advice, facts, white lies and excuses they hear from their elders.  Please note that this show is for an adult audience and contains some strong language.

After four days rehearsal, the young performers, still holding their scripts, will perform at the Howard Assembly Room to a public audience as part of Compass Festival 2014.
