Astonishingly simple and beautifully poetic, That Night Follows Day is a piece for adults featuring 16 children between 8 and 14 years old, cataloguing the many ways a child’s life is determined by that of their carers.

With great clarity and humour, this piece challenges us in a playful and provocative fashion to look and listen to children talking about the way we as adults project our world theirs.

Victoria is a Belgian theatre company based in the Flemish city of Ghent.

Tim Etchells is probably best known for his work as Artistic Director of Forced Entertainment.

Simply breathtaking; authoritative, passionate, vulnerable, beautiful and true, in what’s perhaps the fi nest show about parenthood and childhood ever produced in Europe – Scotsman
