The performance is the culmination of the Edinburgh leg of the National Theatre of Scotland’s youth project running alongside the In Time o’ Strife tour.

The piece has been devised by the participants in response to the poem I Am The Common Man, written by In Time o’ Strife playwright Joe Corrie. The project has been running this week at the Traverse and the performance itself will not be finalised until the session on Saturday morning.

Entry to the Common Man performance is free and it will finish in time for the start of the 2.30pm matinee of In Time o’ Strife.

NTS Learn will be organising similar projects to coincide with the other Scottish dates of the tour (see below). Contact Philippa Tomlin for further details.
