You can't control Latitia. You can't help her. You can't catch her, so quick are her feet. But she's sinking fast. Sixteen and straight out of care, she's heading to rock bottom unless something, or someone, can break her fall. When the worst thing that could possibly happen happens, she takes her first step towards something good.

Written by Andy Day from the lives and words of the cast, this immersive promenade performance around the extraordinary space at Hackney Downs Studios draws out the raw and bitter truth, and the hard road to a hopeful future.

No auditions were held for this production; the young people were selected on the basis of need and most are dealing with issues ranging from learning difficulties, mental health issues, homelessness, drug and alcohol problems and having had their children removed into care. The majority of the cast have never performed before.

The Big House theatre company was established in 2013 and is the only theatre company in the UK using the transformative qualities of the dramatic arts to mend the fractured lives of Britain's care leavers.

Proudly supporting The Big House as its theatre company in residence, Hackney Downs Studios is a hot bed of creativity and collaboration in East London, with studios, venues/locations, events, a cafe and a market. Creative Network Partners are the team behind Hackney Downs Studios; they also run Netil House, Netil 360, Netil 000, The Russet and Netil Market.

26 November – 14 December, 7.45pm / matinees 28 November, 7 & 14 December 3pm
