Created by Scottish Youth Theatre National Ensemble with David Cosgrove and Mary McCluskey
In a seemingly ordinary warehouse, a group of strangers have been assembled and detained.
Will they remain united against the dividing force of authority?
Dye in the Goldfish Bowl is a piece influenced by the world inhabited by the young theatre-makers who form the Ensemble.
The company of 21 young people aged 16 – 25 were selected from over 140 applicants. Since their recruitment in March 2017, the National Ensemble has met on a monthly basis to work with top theatre practitioners including Frantic Assembly. During this time they have explored a range of theatre practice including movement, dance, writing and directing.
In the 4 weeks preceding the performance, they are working intensively with the assistance of guest tutors plus BAFTA winning writer David Cosgrove and SYT Artistic Director Mary McCluskey to develop a site-specific performance in this found venue.
Recommended age suitability 14+. Contains strong language, scenes of physical abuse and incidents of gunfire.
