365 archiveThere are over 70,000 children in care in Britain today. On average they pass through 11 stages of care. In their late teens they have to make the difficult transition from childhood to adulthood, from care to independence. A Practice Flat is one of the state's mechanisms to gently introduce these children to the adult world. 365 is the story of a practice flat - a purpose-built witness to hopes, dreams, fear, opportunity and memory. 365 follows the lives of a group of young people who with their humour, imagination, wit and raw courage pass through the practice flat, taking their first faltering steps towards adulthood and the outside world. World Premiere. A powerfully visual piece of theatre, 365 has been created especially for the Edinburgh International Festival by the National Theatre of Scotland's Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone and written by David Harrower, one of Scotland's leading playwrights. As the UK Government aims to halve child poverty by 2010, and eradicate it completely by 2020, this dynamic work uses extensive social research to pose the question: what are the chances of these children passing successfully into adulthood? Performed in English.
