[BLANK] is a play about absence, about the disparate yet connected stories of the thousands of adults and children affected by the criminal justice system.

In this outstanding piece of new writing by Alice Birch, a challenge is presented to the company, who must create their own play from a selection of 100 non-linear scenes. Bath Theatre Academy first-year students will work as an ensemble to piece together a narrative from these vignettes. Their version of [BLANK] will be the result of an experiment in finding order in chaos, or exposing the messy reality of a system that fails to serve its most vulnerable members.

[BLANK] offers a glimpse into the world of the children who are the invisible victims of crime.

As part of the National Theatre Connections Festival, this piece is the inaugural performance of the Bath Theatre Academy 1st year students.
